These sure look cool and i have always been a PC gamer too but got my first console recently. Here are the specs:

Sony Playstation 3 80GB
connected by HDMI to
Samsung MoselBlaque 52" LCD tv
Bose Jewel Cube 5.1 home theatre sound

Im sure there will be many PC gamers who would love to differ but the combo of these 3 has been the best gaming experience ever

Prices keep dropping every fortnight.

With the launch of i5, if one goes for a Core i7, he's either in for some serious power, or he's stupid. The flagship i5 can be overclocked to beat the i7 920. And costing merely $200, it saves a lot. But memory prices have increased, and relative shortage of ATi silicon in the market has spiraled prices by ~10%.

Good to see some game nutter on Tbhp.Nice rigs fellas.
@Sumit: your setup is really impressive mate, but with i7 and over 4 gig of RAM all aircooled, aren't you getting performance issues? As I've heard that rigs with i7 and > 4 gigs of RAM on aircooled setup, ends up running slow and game play becomes difficult as CPU temp goes more than 85 degrees!!!!

I have 6 gigs of DDR3 RAM. I am managing a CPU temp of around 70 degrees and MB temp of around 40 degrees.

Thanks to the digital temperature monitor (LCD Poster) that came with ASUS RAMPAGE II GENE, now i can keep a watch on temperatures.

It even gives an alarm when temp rises above your prescribed levels.

Temp reading on you rig sounds ok.But have you ever experienced higher temps?? Any plans on moving to water cooled setup?? (Asking just out of interest)

I will move to water cooled if I see temperatures rising above prescribed limits.
