I finally have gotten around to upgrading since I wanted to see what Nvidia had up their sleeve before buying the Radeon 79XX series, I'm glad that I waited.
I just have to wait for EK to release some nice blocks for the cards and I will be in business, I'm not quite sure if I want to use them on air while I wait. These are the Superclocked editions, but alas not the 4GB models as I was impatient! I absolutely love the fact that the PCB is tiny, roughly about the size of the 6600 GT. I may end up getting another one maybe in a month for some triple SLI action.
Here is also what I did with some of my tax return
18.4" 1920x1080 res LCD
Intel Core i7 2960XM
Dual Radeon 6990 2GB Crossfire
500GB Seagate Hybrid SSD
500GB Seagate Momentus XT
Killer NIC 1102
It's 12 lbs. which kills too carry and the 330 watt power brick is huge, damn near the size of the Xbox 360 power brick. The cooling for the M18X works surprisingly well, my crotch hasn't caught on fire yet!
I upgraded the memory, the hybrid SSD and the Killer NIC myself
(yes, I am aware I messed up the text in my pictures. I'm just too lazy to fix it. M18X, not MX18)
