(i got a chain of trades to make before i can actually get it: have to trade my Cisco router to someone else for a radeon HD 4870 X2 that i cant use, sell that off for at least $100 bucks, and then work out with the guy how we are going to get this transaction to work out.)
So yeah, im a bit on the excited side about this monster of a chip.
