I love my new rig, it is so much faster then my really really old dell. It eats games on the highest settings (not crysis, everything is on high not very high.) But I had problems with it. The sound was cracking, so I sent it back to get it fixed, They didn't fix it. I called them and said It's still cracking. So I sent it back again. Alex called and said it was the sound card software, it was not working with vista. He gave me a free upgrade to the Razer sound card and was sorry for them not fixing it the first time. I got it back and it was fine no cracking sound. Thank you Digital Storm for making and fixing my rig.Here are my specs.

very nice rig!

I wish the QX9770 would come down in price.  I'd love to swap one into my system.

to be honest, I don't know, but I don't think it will drop that much, if it does then wow.

I think if about 6 month to a year you can expect those prices, but then again I could be wrong on that too.

You could get a qx9650, overclock it and save yourself $500+.  That is basically what the qx9770 is, an overclocked 9650.

qx9650 = quad extreme 9650
 
Is it me or are you comparing wrong CPUs? I could be wrong, but qx9650 would have unlocked multiplier and q9650 would not. Smile
