Total system price shipped before rebates is 1379.00.
Everything went together without a hitch. It took me about 5 minutes to put VISTA Ultimate 64 Bit on it. My buddy is a computer scientist and is a subscriber to Microsofts developer program (600 dollars a quarter.). So we used an ISO that all ready had a beta copy of SP2 on it and had all updates. It was nice to see windwowes update say there are no updates at this time. (Why it has all of the language packs installed I have no clue)
It took me longer to run the setup disc for the motherboard!
Everything runs AWESOME. Vantage score was 17000 and that was with iRacing downloading and installing in the background! Norton Bloatware was also running in background. I will be switching antivirus today. I can finally turn everything up on Armed Assult. iRacing runs locked at 60fps with all options enabled and anti aliasing and antriscopic filtering being set on the card, havn't seen it dip below 60 yet
FarCry 2 runs maxed at 1920x1200. I am a happy man. Bring on Armed Assaut 2!!!!
