Haha, don't go building yourself up for a huge let-down ;-)

I can state that there will not be dual-GPU in this machine, and that was a deliberate choice. GPUs today are so powerful, that most people can't even properly push the higher-end single-GPU configurations, so in this case, dual-GPU would just be overkill. Not to mention, it would add needless cost to the winner's power bill ;-)

No dual-GPU, but trust me on one thing, our PC package will be quite unique compared to other contests you've seen before.

Thanks for all the nice comments guys, we truly appreciate the support!

I figured as much, what I said plus the parts you already listed would be well over 2000 dollars((excluding the nitrogen and overclocking))...I just felt a bit imaginative...

Wait...when you say dual do you mean two separate PCI slotted cards...or anything with dual, like the 295? Just curious.....

Dual-GPU on a single card is still dual-GPU and still overkill ;-)

Alright, I know we just began this PC preview a couple of days ago, but in the spirit of the weekend, let's take a brief break from the actual hardware inside the PC, to look at some of the peripherals we'll be bundling along with it.

If there's one manufacturer that's consistently produced gaming peripherals that gamers have good reason to buy, it's Logitech. For as long as there has been PC gaming, there's been Logitech, and as mentioned in the intro to this thread, the company's RumblePad 2 gamepad was the first review we ever published. Yes, Logitech had so much faith in Techgage at the beginning, that it sent us a product to review before we even had a site to show them!

Since that initial review, we've taken a look at many Logitech products, and few left us unimpressed. So, it made perfect sense to help make our gaming PC even better with the help of its products. So, what do we have?

For one, the G19 gaming keyboard, which is so feature-rich, you'll almost wonder how you stuck with that cheapie $30 model from the local brick and mortar. Sure, it's equipped with an LCD screen, but there's a lot more to it than that. For hardcore gamers, the macros are what make this keyboard heaven.



Of course, you can't have a proper gaming setup without a proper gaming mouse, and for that duty, the G9x steps up to the plate. For one, it has a wicked grip (good for sweaty gaming sessions), customizable weight, an accurate and tight scroll wheel and of course, a laser sensor for ultimate precision.



Ever play the latest and greatest PC game out there without sound? It sucks. So to avoid that from happening, Logitech has also bundled it's ultra-popular X-540 surround sound set.

To make sure this "gaming PC" is exactly that, the Logitech peripherals we exposed yesterday ensure that whomever wins our custom-build will have an incredible gaming experience. But, half of the fun of gaming is to both play online and play with precise sound, and there are two products to take care of both of these angles.

To help get our gaming PC online, TRENDnet has thrown our way its TEW-671BR wireless router. This dual-band offering can generate two networks at the same time, one at 2.4GHz and the other at 5GHz, and is fully capable of delivering incredible network performance, and the ability to stream your HD content completely without wires. Of course, for the best online gaming experience, we always recommend using a wired connection, so the wireless here should be left to the other PCs or notebooks in your house!



With the help of Logitech's X-540 surround sound speakers, you can easily immerse yourself in wall-pounding sound, but what about those times when your family threatens to kick you out to to the street? That's where Ultrasone's trendy DJ1 PRO's come into play. These closed-backed foldable headphones have a frequency range of 10Hz-22KHz, an impedence of 64 Ohm and a pressure level of 102 dB. Yes, these suckers can get loud, and because of their high build quality, you will never hear distortion at louder volume levels (but let's be realistic, these should be used as headphones, not speakers ;-)).
