Case, HDD, and DVD drive, Mouse & Keyboard and other things I would like to reuse until I have got more money. ( 8800GTX should just manage in current case)
My uses for this machine will include
Gaming - Not hardcore but frequent.
Studies - IT related
Media - General watching to dabbling with editing
Would like to Overclock but is not necessary and if I did would be minor.
Don't have any immediate plans for SLI but if it became feasible later on would consider it
Still need at least one IDE port.
Have a PCI TV Tuner Card capable of Hi-Def recording.
Would Like at least 6 SATAII ports.
Thats about it but have 2 minor questions.
1. with most Motherboards carrying Hi-def 8 channel Audio these days is it still worth it to put in a separate audio card.
2. When I do get a new Mouse is the MX revolution a good gaming mouse or is the G7 More for Gaming.

Heard previously that more is to be expected from ATI (AMD) & nVidia in Q2
But now I have heard a little more and thought about it.
Now I'm thinking even if I don't get newer card (8900 or ATI equivalent) price's for 8800's will likely drop.
My question is does anyone know with a little more accuracy when the newer cards will arrive and possibly when prices will drop on the current 8800's.
