  1. get the xt version, the xt-x isnt much better but its $100 more.
    And by the choice of mobo im guessing your going to be overclocking, if so consider some ddr500 ram.
  2. Get Dual x1900 XT
    Get CrossFire MotherBoard
    Get Operon 170
  3. Ok guys I agree on the opteron 170 but dual 1900 xtx is a bit too much I will get only one 1900xtx
  4. oompa beat me to the punch ok dude what oompa said but get an opty 165 its cheaper an it ocs well
