Cool.
Just once it would be fun to build a "money is no object" system. Just for fun.

It's kind of pricey for the systems I usually build but for the numbers it's pretty cheap.

Yeah, know what you mean, it was pretty well buried, too.

I think it was $259 which means a street price of ~$190 and then the lower end cards they'll leverage off the same chip will end up having a street price in the mid $50 range.

Good news for all of us.
