ok guys, im using the cyberpower pc configurator dealy and this is what ive come up with so far. ive always been nvidia fanboy but it costs more to switch to sli mobo and to 560ti card, after a little research the 6950 2gb looks like a fair trade for the 560ti. anyways, the final price of this comes out to $1200. what do you guys think? i know i could probably shave a little off here and there if i just build it myself but im fucking tired of building and fixing computers and i just want it sent ready to go. any suggestions? whats the deal with the 30 gb ssd? will it really benefit me in any way? please gimme some advice so i can have the courage to go through with the purchase and be ready for all the new awesome games, especially bf3!

You should pm SG about this setup and see if he can get it lower for you cause SG told me the cyberpower pc are probably the next cheapest build you can get after from him

Edit: The setup seems pretty good and will last you long. Maybe change the 30gb Sata to a 60

1200 dollars seems a few hundred dollars over what that computer should cost. If it were 2x 6950's it would make more sense.
