I'm looking at this combo :

Is it a good buy?

$339.99 for those two, and a XFX PV-T71G-UCF7 Geforce 7900GT 256mb for $234.99, and a cheap case and a cheap PSU is all I need correct?

Will that motherboard be able to (SLi with another 7900GT, and OC) in the future?

I should be able to get all the above and a gig of RAM for under $800 is my goal.

Is that combo decent or should I wait and perhaps the price will decrease? (in the short future...as in, in less than a month b/c Conroes will be more readily available).

Sure why not. That mobo is worth >$200 alone. And an E6300 goes for $180 i think.

Yes its SLI capable and it looks to be quite a good deal. However the cpu is OEM which means it doesnt come with the 3 year retail warranty. Also OEM cpu's dont come with cooling fans. You should inquire about what kind of fan it comes with, if at all.

If you click the warranties button, it says it comes with the original warranties to.

3 years for the motherboard. and I think a year for the processor.

It is a very good buy; I was just noticing it earlier today. I'd get an eVGA 7900GT because of the step-up program.

What about this case and power supply...

is 400w going to be enough to power all of the equipment?


Maybe. What are the amps on the 12V rail? The 12V rail powers the motherboard, CPU, grahics card, hard drives, and some other stuff. Wattage is equal to amps times volts. So if the 12V rail has 20 amps, you multiply 12*20, and get 240 watts which is shared by all those components.
