From the moment we prototyped all of our systems...we've never had a problem with the BFG 6800 Ultra OC cards. Liquid cooled or air cooled.
We do have options for more memory...But you are limiting yourself to certain chipsets that run slower busspeeds, especially when you don't or can't find 2Gb sets that are matched, because the system automatically defaults to 300Mhz once you run 2 pairs of memory cards. Give and Take.
We have been testing these systems with full resolution configs and everything else, in any game, to the fullest settings w/o a hiccup.
I agree the 7800 gtx is a great card, definitely better than the 6800 ultra's, but it's size is a problem in some cases, ie. having to relocate hard drives. It is an option on all of our computers... and we will relocate (modify case) to allow their use.
So try as you may I would still put these systems up against any others out there, and bet we are well above your prediction of under top 20 computers available...No Dry Ice Here...
And by the way we have about a 50/50 positive/negative response rate to that case. Most people that see it in person can't get over the vibrancy of our hand painted colors...We will paint to custom specs if needed, ie. your race car numbers, logo's, names, etc.
