Well, I'm a recent Mac switcher. Love OS X. Love My PB. LOVE IT. But... there is always a "but" isn't there. But, it's not what I expected in the gaming arena. I knew that I'd be taking a major hit with the gaming factor, but I didn't think it would affect me this much. I'm having some major FPS withdrawl symptoms. I've been playing only RTS games, because my PB can't handle the FPS to my liking. I'm used to at least 40~50 fps for my FPS with the graphics/resolution on high. My PB doesn't even come close to that. I barely scraped 20FPS out of it in UT2004 on medium settings with a crappy resolution. If yours does reach those levels, more power to ya, don't tell me about it. Anyway, I bought the PB because I wanted a stable system that I could make some easy movies and music on. I'm glad I switched. Very very glad. I can't stress that enough. I'll never go back to a "Windows Only" world. I can forsee myself always owning a Mac of some kind now. I say all that to say this. I need some love in the game department. So, I'm thinking about downgrading my Mac to one of the new 12" PB's in the summer. My wive can use that, than I can build myself a gaming rig. So we'll have two machines, I can use the Mac 12" for movies, music, and regular stuff like internet and the like, then I'll have my gaming system. I'm not sure exaclty how I'm going to do this, because I kinda told my wife that I wasn't going to upgrade for awhile, but I'll have to try to smooth talk her. Anyway, I'm thinking about building this system when I get back to the states. I'll have to save up for a little while. I've been looking at water cooling. I'm wondering if anyone who posts here has any experience with water cooling. Can you trasport the computer easily if you are using a watercooled system? Is there a possibility of water spilling out while traveling in the car from house to LAN party? Anyway, this is the system I'm looking to build. I figure with the way things are going, the overall price should drop by a few hundred before I get it.

Then when I feel like I need a boost in speed (which should be quite awhile) I'll upgrade to SLI and a Raid 0 configuration for the HD. I figure I can sell my PB 17" for around 2000 or so. Grab a REV D. 12" PB and use the left over towards the gaming rig. Why am I posting all this? Because my wife is sick of talking about computers with me. So I have to let it out somehow. Actually, she's looking over my shoulder right now rolling her eyes. Ah..marriage.
