Yea, but after doing a lot of reading around, Sager has said that they do not support it being upgrade-able. Also, from what I read, the new GTX 680 and the AMD 7970 both would need a higher AC adapter (180w) than the ones available to both the Sager and the Lotus(120w). Is it possible to upgrade an AC adapter?
I noticed that, but I'm sure the GTX 670 will more more than fine for my needs, in any case. I do like this site much better than Xoticpc, even though it has less of a variety. It wouldn't be a bad idea, in my opinion, to add that into the laptop section. The $50 off a $1500 purchase is a pretty sweet deal.
Hmm okay, I'll stick with my Extreme6 then. No black PCB but oh well, not like I'm ever going to look at that :O. (A nice PCB is a must for a GPU though!).
Do you know if the Extreme6 does well at OCing?

Yeah it's not a big deal. If I were to SLI/Xfire I'd be only doing 2 anyways. But just in case, if you had to say which is better out of the Extreme6 and the regular p8z77-v ignoring pricing, which is better? (I'm ordering today, that's why).
I need a new router too for this upgraded build. I can't spend more than $40 shipped, which of these two would you suggest?

Ignoring pricing? The P8Z77-V. Comes with more features, and the wireless connectivity might come handy on the P8Z77-V.
I'd say go for the Netgear, although if you can find a used Linksys WRT54GL, I'd go for that instead.
Depends on what you already have.

Priority is a new graphics card, but seeing that it's an eMachine, you WILL have to get a new power supply with a new graphics card (unless you are fine with lower-end graphics card).
Then I would consider swapping out the CPU, motherboard, and RAM.
