Thanks muchly,

I think that you are going to have a majour issue with the price :)

Heh, it's costing me AU$4000 (~US$3150), possibly a couple of hundred less if I decide to go for the E6600 instead of the E6700 - not sure the amount of extra performance really justifies the significantly higher price.

That price includes ~US$390 of profit for the friend sourcing and building it all for me.

Oh, and ~US$2360 of it wont be coming from my own pocket... So all in all, I've got NO problems with the price :P
