Yea, and i think it looks better as well. Is it a bad idea to torrent windows 7 ultimate or just buy the basic edition? i think i can buy it at my school for $30-$40

Slightly off topic, but check out these x79 boards.

These are some sweet looking boards, imo.

I would advise you to never bootleg your OS. I know plenty of poeple that do it without issue. But for me, the OS is the foundation of your entire PC. If it has shit embedded in it, you'll feel that pain for a long time.

If you only going to use a single video card, and not 2-SLI, then you can get a mobo for less money that doesnt support SLI.

This has everything you need, and nothing you dont need at a good price.
