It is not the count of your posts, but the quality of your posts that matter... luckily, I have both. ^_<
I figure I'll contribute a little bit more now and post a picture when I can.
It's going up on craigslist :P
Yes, I've had one of the wdvr's for 2 years and the other for a little over a year.

Would you turn down a pair of 300Gb Velociraptors (WD3000HLFS) for about £30? I don't know where or when 0ptimo got theirs, but I picked up mine for exactly that much around two years ago. (I, in fact, got four of them at the time and simply sold two on for I think about £60 each.). I then got my SSD a little under a year ago, and now use my raptors as the "storage" drive, with my SSD as the system drive.
(Whups, remembered I had the H70 and not the H50. Still, the H50 is plenty for the i5/i7)

We got it back, I ordered the parts on my dime, and managed to put it back together (took me 3 months due to a parts shortage from NEC)
Now it lives on my desk.
A couple years old but still screams.
i7 firstname.lastname@example.org no overvoltage=long life, cosiar750ps, 6gb ram @1333 7/7/7/18, 120ssd for win7 64bit boot, 60ssd for wow, 1tb e-sata backup hd, 21"monitor, 15" monitor for interwebs while gaming, CM storm scout case added extra 120mm fan to front, dark knight xigmatic cpu cooler, gtx260 slightly overclocked no overvoltage, pciex1 wireless card, Moterola sb6120cable modem @ 19gb down/2-3gb up, logitech g15.
Would love to up the gpu but hard to sell used video cards. Getting corsiar HS1 headset for bday
15/25 lat 130fps in raids.
I'm also thinking that SLI GTX580s won't be the minimum for maximum out BF3.
Thinking about how the question was asked, they responded to someone with a GTX580, and meant to say, "one 580 isn't enough but it will be enough if you add another" - because you're unlikely to sell the 580 and buy two lesser, for instance. I'm sure SLI/Crossfire with lesser cards will suffice as well, but the GTX580 having bigger margin.
Meaning, this is an actual game. I do hope they stick true to their word though. That "One GTX 580 isn't enough".
Even the limitations on the Destruction 3.0 Physics engine scream CONSOLE PORT seeing as DICE originally said it would allow for the majority of the game to be destructible, but not even half of it is. Also the effects from destroying stuff is scaled back, its better than the alpha yes.. but I don't foresee it being any better because they still have to keep consoles in mind.
The only good thing is that DICE/EA are doing it right and optimizing it for PC's so it isn't like GTA:4

Since I am not winning any awards for an impressive tower anytime soon... I shall claim victory in any impending peripheral war!
