    Im also looking into joining the club! I do have some questions though.

    1.) If I get the 460 graphics card can I upgrade later on down the road?

    2.) Will I be able to get a better cpu as well??

    3.) Would you recommend geting IC Diamond thermal compound on this to keep it cool or stock should do fine?

    If those could be answered I would appreciate it.

    1. Most likely YES..
    2. YES
    3. I really like IC Diamond. So yes unless you are planning to open up your system and repaste anyway...;)

    Thanks alot for the fast response! Im real excited about this system. Since I wont be getting the new graphic card right away, ill hold off on the IC since that means ill have to reopen the system just to install it. Thanks!

    So its better in the long run to grab a x7200 with dual 460m's then? I think someone mentioned that the 485m matches sli 460m's so that's why I'm considering the np8170. But I'm not sure if I should sacrifice the CPU power from stock and potential upgrades since I need it for 3d, video editing, audio, etc....Advice, is a x7200 upgrade around the corner? Oh and whats this backlight keyboard nonsense? Thanks

    I got to thinking for future references, so lets say something comes after the 485, which im sure there will be, and I have not yet upgraded to to the 485, with the new proccessor in the 8170 would it be possible to even use the newer gpu's that come out?

    @BabyHemi those specs look lovely! I made my purchase not too long ago, once I finalize things ill post the specific specs I got for my systtem.
