I have the alienware aurora..probably spelled that wrong... Laugh

It's wicked fast for gaming , and has more memory than I'll ever need.

Not sure what my whole system is, I'll have to look when I get home , and post it..

you won't be disappointed. The only thing I didn't like is the tower is a lot bigger than I'm used to. But I guess with all the cooling fans , and such that is needed for room.


If it were raining hookers, I'd get hit by a fag.

I decided (for now) to go with cyberpowerpc... a lot more customizable than Dell (aurora), you can specify motherboard, case, etc.

And they offer rush assembly ... Dell has about 18 days until they ship.

It's gonna be wicked. Atm they are offering the i7 975 xtreme for the price of the 970, probably not a huge difference but the 975 is intel's 2nd fastest proc afaik.

The more power your system has the more cooling it needs. A bigger case allows more airflow. The alternative to a big case for a high powered system is liquid cooling. Some cases are made specifically for liquid cooling. Liquid cooling has the added benefit that it eliminates the need for noisy fans. SSDs run hotter than HDs. Overclocked CPUs, Chip Sets & Memory run hotter. An i7 runs hotter than the previous Core 2 Duo/Quad's. For some time I've believed we needed a bigger mobo size standard than ATX for better heat dissipation. If you're a mad overclocker you'll need that bigger case (and extra cash for the parts you fry). Or you could just get a mac or an iPad. 🙄 Laugh A co-worker of mine just bought an iPad, showing it off to make people jealous. Not!

" SSDs run hotter than HD"-no my friend, they do not. In fact, they have no moving parts and don't produce heat. They also use MUCH less power than a traditional hard drive making them perfect for laptops
