[Sidefx-houdini-list] OT: Houdini 12 system

On a cheaper note, I was going to build my own "bang for the buck" system,
but stumbled upon this pre-built PC, which had pretty much all the stuff I
wanted for a price lower than I could build it for (I missed it at $899 on
"Black Monday", and it is at $1099 now):

	
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883227382&Tpk=ibuypowe
r%20957i

	2600K Core i7 (supposed to be good for easy overclocking)
	16 GB RAM
	2 GB GTX 560 Ti 
	1 TB Hard Drive
	Windows 7 Premium 64 bit

I haven't pulled the plug and bought it yet- I am still hoping for it to pop
up on some "New Year Sale" or something, but if someone wants a pretty
rockin' PC for home and only has around $1K to spend, I don't think this one
can be beat.

Cheers,
Craig
