Windows 7: What's your dream rig?

So I guess I'm just not a hardcore enough of a PC gamer because I've never yet been inclined to do an SLI or Crossfire setup at all. So, while I am still using just 1 video card and not evening thinking about going to 2...there are others who actually have a need to run 4????

Honestly, is there really a "need" for this much video horsepower...or is it simply a matter or raising benchmarks or just having the most bragging rights?

99% of people don't need four cards, let alone three.

Two cards is the most that most people could want for heavy duty gaming and graphics design work.

One card works more than well enough to game effectively.

Important note: a case with 9 or more expansion slots is required, 10 for 4-Way SLI. See this page for a list of compatible PC cases."

won't fit in the Corsair Obsidian
I was looking into this mobo yesterday, It's pretty impressive, the 7 pci-e being what sold me, but because of that there's no pci slot, I've got a pci TV Tuner that I can't do without....
and also
Too bad the 'Antec 200' or 'Tagan El Diablo' cases aren't on that list......
