Out of the Blue

Super Bowl Sunday is here, one of my very favorite holidays of the year. The chili has been cooking all night, and I've been contemplating taking my first stab at making some Buffalo Wings, but I'm not sure I will work up enough motivation for that. You'd think we were planning a Super Bowl party with all that, but it is just me and MrsBlue (and the doggies, of course -- Gunnar-man actually watches portions of football games on TV). If I was a betting man I'd take the Colts and give the 5/6 points, but I'm not, so I don't have a particular rooting interest except for hoping it's a good game.

I posted this awhile ago now:

That machine is currently at $1100. Assuming you have the accessories and some HDs and Optical to carry over from your old machine.

It plays every new game maxed, and that is including 8xAA 16xAF etc.
Even Crysis, though it isn't exactly a new game anymore it still seems to be one of the most taxing for benchmarks.

It honestly was my easiest build yet, and the machine I had before was doing just fine and it was 3 years old. To me $1,000 and less than 6 hours of work every 3 years is beyond worth it for the quality and performance of PC gaming.

edit: forgot to note that many of those pieces in my build are overkill, like the 1000 watt powersupply, the 4x PCI Express Crossfire/SLI support, and the humongous case. So the price could be brought down much further and still max all the new games.
