The 6990 will be amazing cards, while being way cheaper than the nvidia, considering how well already perform the 6970s.
Instead of going for a hybrid, which I heard is not so performing in terms of speed, I would definitely suggest the SSD as a main disk - raid 0 even better if you can - and add one big hdd - 500 or 750 7200rpm as secondary, as I did. So, you'll enjoy both speed and storage space.
I second that.
I had 4 hard drives in my m11x, a 5400rpm, a 7200rpm, a 7200rpm hybrid and now I'm with an SSD. It's a world of difference!

ri-lol, that's exactly what I was trying to say in my former post, but couldn't find a better and more concise way to say it. I guess you can tell that English is not my native language
I mean two people to lift the tower only

It's alright for language; English is my third. That said, tutti impariamo.
