What do you think? Going for performance/expandability/aesthetics.
Will be used for graphics design / gaming / 3d work / and running a virtual machine.
Goal is to have a machine that performs well for at least three years, and in three to five years add a 2nd 7950, i7, and 8gb more RAM.
I'm open to changing anything but the case, but must stay at (not under or over, goal is not to save but to get the most for $1300) $1,300.
