Coincidentally, earlier this week I bought a new computer from a company called Digital Storm (www.digitalstormonline.com), and I have to say that I'm loving it so far! I'm running at 2560x1600 resolution at the ultra setting and have never noticed even the slightest stutter. I decided to get silly and open up some of the recount real-time graphs in my raid and it still just chewed through them without hesitation.The thing I really like about the computer and the company is that they've overclocked the heck out of it (an i7 920 running at 3.75GHz as well as the video card) and they're covering all the components with a 3 year warranty. I'm pretty sure that overclocking invalidates your warranty if you're building your own system (although whether someone can tell a CPU/graphics card was overclocked I'm not sure). Still, the peace of mind is worth it to me.

That's a pretty amazing sounding system! Overclocking instantly voids manufacturer warranties. However, the company who built the computer and I assumed overclocked it may still honor the warranty, especially if that's what they gave you. It's probably wise to double check that with them!
