Is the lure of reportedly the most powerful GFX card tempting you as release date nears or is it just too expensive for the performance?

personally i'd choose OCZ's reaperX's over the corsair

and a GT instead of a GTS if you wanna save a tad more money, just clock the GT

rest looks good though

personally dont like the case either though :p

Indeed unless you can get a notice cheap raptor a single 750GB drive is similarly priced to a retail raptor and in most cases its faster.

Mr. Smith
reaperX, raid0 2 normal drives. Rest looks good mate... Not that long until the 9800gtx comes out for $300 so i'm not sure how that will impact gts prices, perhaps lower them...
