I'm not on a really strict budget but would greatly appreciate any input, especially with the mobo and video card. It will be used mostly for gaming, but I am an IT major as well. May try my hand at OCing, but I haven't before. I already have an lcd, keyboard, mouse, etc.
Thanks in advance!
Nice list. Your research has not been in vain! 8) ASUS P5B Deluxe WiFi-AP review
If your LCD is 1280x1024 the 7900GT will be fine. If you're gaming @ 16x12 or above you'll appreciate the 7900GTX's extra GPU power.
