I was also somewhat surprised by the 3770K in the premium player, I was expecting an X79 system.

what in the crazy world do you need 1200 watts of power for in the premium player overkill is not the word id use.
most new mobos have native 6gbs ports that are faster than the high point card that was needed in the pre sandybridge days.
