    What do you mean by "gamign rig"? Both Leopard Extreme and Wild Dog Performance would qualify for gaming machines with high end CPU and powerful video cards. In fact, I don't think you can get better gaming hardware than the Leopard: Sandy-Bridge-E, lots of RAM, Nvidia GTX680 or even GTX690.

    Leopard Extreme.

    Lets see how good this is for gaming with its top specs...
    2nd gen Intel i7 Extreme (6 cores, 3.3 GHz, 15 MB cache)
    64 GB DDR3 1333 MHz RAM
    4 GB NVidia GTX 690
    960 GB Intel SSD RAID 0 array
    2 DVD R/W LightScribe drives
    Media card readers
    PCI 802.11N WiFi
    I think that is good enough to be called a 'gaming rig.'
    <sarcasm>But will it play Minecraft?</sarcasm>
    Backups are amazing. 99% of data loss can be prevented by spending less than $100 on an external drive.
    If you have seen an error, there is a good chance someone else has, too. Google is your friend.
