It's inferior and costs 80$ more.
I am talking quality and how well it powers the units. I wasnt equating price into me saying the unit is fine

These any good?

Also, a lot of people have been telling me that a 3rd HD6950 would not add much performance and could even reduce performance. They're suggestions I stick with either one or two high end cards... Thoughts?

"You definitely should go with a single high end gpu over the three 6950's. Crossfire and sli both have a very bad price to performance ratio. twice (or in your case three) times the cost for maybe a 25% increase in speed and not the widely assumed 100% increase.

In your case with 3 gpu's the 3rd gpu will add little to no performance increase over two , and in some tests actually is slower then two. This is because all three gpu's are basically fighting for something to render thus slowing the machine over two or even one gpu."

Where is the SSD!! Get a small SSD to run your OS and main apps on and use your other drives for data and lightly used apps. That's essential on any new computer.
