Appears that they changed the cards to be four 7900 cards. Don't say GTX though.

Oh yeah, you're right! Wow! :shock: It was 7800's at the CES show in January, surprised they bumped it to 7900's!

I'm sure they're GTX's or better because who would buy a $10,000 machine that has GT's in it? :P

Oh I'm sure some rich people will. They made 30 of them (or so I've heard) and it was anticipated that they would all sell very fast.

I wonder if thing can play Diablo II? :rolleyes: I would probably never leave the house again. I'd sit in front of it :rolleyes: with a goofy grin on my face as I fragged and fragged and fragged and fragged and fragged...

Someone help me. I'm caught in an infinite loop.
