Nice! What kind of cash is this costing you? to date? when everything is finished?

I wish I could go intel now, but my 939 is serving me well for now. Still have a few kinks to work out before I upgrade

Well I have a nice setup with a local computer store where I live so I get stuff at a undisclosed price.. but if i were to buy it from newegg it would be a lil bit..

I figure around $1500. if I ordered it all ..

My hard drives I am keeping from my current rig, the video cards I bought 2 weeks ago, I spent around $120. on the 1/2" upgrade for my liquid cooling and new water block the case I have from my current rig as well as the PSU..
