    Intel's eight-core, SLI-supporting Skulltrail system benchmarked!

    I wonder just how many people have £5,000 or so to drop on a gaming rig. Surely diminishing returns is massive factor when you can get quad core and high end SLI for a good bit under £2,000.

    It is the same as the people who weren't going to buy Extreme Editions or 8800 Ultras... they do exist!
