You getting the A8R32-MVP or what board? The RD-580 chipset?

That would be blazing fast, for your hard drive configuration it's better to get 3 250gb hard drive and raid it. or get the Western Digital Raptor.
Yeah man for ur motherboard check out this Asus.

http://usa.asus.com/products3.aspx?l1=3&l2=15&l3=236&sl...®%20Xpress%20200%20CrossFire™

It Asus Crossfire edition motherboard: ATI Radeon® Xpress 200 CrossFire™

That would be insanely fast, an eyecandy.

Good Luck!!!

SHould be quite zippy, as the 1900XTX is about the best single card solution there is right now for gaming...

(If it were me, hypothetically looking to save $300 or so, I'd bump the processor selection down a single notch, and get an Opteron 180 dual core instead, as most games played at high res are gpu bound, where the extra 200 MHz on core speeds will usually gain you only .5-1 frames/sec in games such as FEAR; I'd also save another $100 by getting the 1900XT instead, with a core/mem speed only barely below the XTX...; with the $400 saved total, you have an option of getting an even better video card 18 months later...!)

If the money is unimportant, get the FX60, though, they rock~

I'm hearing good things about the msyterious G71 forthcoming...a genuine 32 pipes?

Can't wait to see how it compares to 1900XT/XTX, both of which kick butt!

AMD 64 X2 is definitively a better deal!

No need for 10,000 RPM HD, you are NOT editing videos!
SATA II 7200 with 16 MB RAM is to good !!!

As far as for dual Video, it is just a marketing gimmick to suck fools out of the money, unless you do stock market and need 4 monitors or more.
