U kiddin? No one's above Stig in my book.

EDIT: Now I remember why I don't visit Tom's anymore.

An expensive 990FX mobo paired with a 955? all with a 256gb system drive? A 1000W silverstone gold strider for a 6950? That's a messed up build, and I've heard bad things about those liquid GTX 580s. The PNY watercooled ones are alot better. Also, I would never buy another creative product after I went through driver hell with them.

Kinda a gross guide, and that ginger doesn't look like she wants to be there.
