    Don't. An i5-2500K and P67 honestly is better for gaming and OC'd can certainly compare to even the higher end i7-9xx series CPUs, as crazy as it is. It is not cost efficient to buy an i7-9xx/x58 setup unless it's for nostalgia purposes, wanting a hard OC job, or you're just a mad-man like Cyanotical who does folding and fancy stuff. :P

    I am interested!

    I just need to bump my linux box at work up to something a bit more powerful. And I suppose I can leave my PS3 on while I'm at work too.

    Also, what's with all the Phantoms?!?!
    My old system was a black case with blue LED's so I wanted something different this time around. I had my eye on the Phantoms, and it was between the white and red and I decided to go with red :P

    Phantoms are great for the price -- a lot of room, great airflow, and awesome cable management.

    Only 58lbs?

    I lift 70lb rolls of printing substrate all day, I can totally find you and take it.

    Its probably more of the fact that there are no handles on the Elysium. Having to pick it up by the bottom is really awkward.

    Hey all you at home folders - what kind of power do you need to do it? I'm guessing my rig is a little bit substandard for it

    You can do it.
    Anyone can.

    It's just that you get better performance for it with a better rig. It's for science anyway, and not an e-peen contest. Although, I suppose it could be interpreted as such.

    There's a scoreboard for e-peen measure.

    A roll of printing vinyl doesn't exactly have handles either. It's also 54" long, and a cylinder.
