like i said to glock building the last 2 for my parents and my Gf's parents, both their systems are out dated ( Both are from the time Tiny Computers LTD. were still in business) so thought i would surprise them with 2 updated computers

The i7 system im gonna be using and the Xeon system is going to be used by my GF.

Just posting an update, So since looks like the cards have been canceled im going to stick with sli for now and go with watercooling in the i7 rig. In the xeon rig i might go with a gtx 465 or a 5870 depending on what sales come up in the next week and since the a70 doesnt fit to well i need a new cooler -__-;; Any recommendations on what parts to use in my loop? and whats a good but compact air cooler thats a tad smaller then the a70?

pics should be coming by this weekend of the i7 and xeon rig
