Total bottleneck and doesn't allow for an accurate article in my book.

I've noticed quite a huge leap in my electricity bill since I built this rig, so I dread to think what that monster would do. I draw the line at that... it's just too expensive to run, and to stupid. Plus, I bet there's no easy watercooling solution either.
I'll wait for DX10. I'm already considering a rebuild using Core Duo 2 because it's cheaper to run as well as being faster, but I've no intention fo buying another power hungry GPU until we see what's coming next.
