I just wanted to know if anyone could tell me for sure that this will all fit together and is compatible. I've never tried fitting SLi cards in a case before, and yes i know that case is huge but i want to know for sure if this will all work fine because if it doesnt fit together the online shop won't let me return parts just because i ordered the wrong ones. i tried sending them an email asking them but they didnt reply...

Thanks in advance

I think 2x 8800GT will be overkill on a 1440x900 lcd

Start with one, you can always buy another if your not satisfied

Fitting the cards wont be a problem.

The rest looks good!

Thanks for the quick reply mate. Yeah I considered the overkill, but I'm pretty desperate to run crysis maximum, and thought an overkill might be a necessity. Yea I've never built my own computer before, and was just worried about fitting the motherboard in the case, and fitting the two graphics cards in the case, and...yea i just dont know how it would all fit together. i think i would break down and cry if something didnt fit together, all that money...

Thanks again.

hi guys
dont know if u have noticed but your mobo cant support sli and thus no 8800gt. u will be better off getting sli supported mobo or wait for 3800 series by ati. as it will support dx10.1, it will be more future proof. hope i helped.

Yeah Lordszone is right (you posted just seconds before me)
For SLi you need an nvidia chipset. I recomend the Abit in9 32x-max wifi
You could go radeon, but you wouldnt get very good crossfire performance on that board, its second pci-e slot is only x4, like on most p35 boards
And besides, from ATIs recent cards, do you really expect the 3800 to be any good?

Oeps, didn't see that.
lucky enough there are some guys her that do pay attention!

You will have to choose another mobo

The Striker Extreme is a good board but I would suggest the P5N32-E SLI if your planning on SLI and if not then a P35 board.

The Evga 680i is also a good board but the Asus P5N is less expensive and is pretty much the same. The major difference between th Striker and the P5N is the Striker has a e-Sata port and a bunch of onboard led's to light up your board as well as on board power/reset/clear cmos buttons which the P5N doesn't have.

Functionally the boards are exactly the same and if you really want e-Sata you can just get a $15 expansion card and not pay the $95 premium for the Striker.

Cheers for all the feedback, but herein lies the problem. I'm from Australia and dont really want to pay $500 shipping for this thing so.. my options are limited, but thanks for picking up on the no SLi thing, that was kind of stupid of me. From what i can see P5N.

Wow cheers for all the links mate. What I meant was was that I find cheap parts like a graphics card on a website, but it has other parts which are more expensive like really expensive monitors or something. I got all those parts off With that setup thats the cheapest website ive found. i havent tried all the ones you have listed but.

If you try and order the cheap part off every single website you will end up paying more after all the freight so yea...just dont really have the online shops that the US does

The Evga board is a good one since it's the A1 revision. Look around at the stuff chookman linked, you might save a $ or 2 on shipping buy shopping all at one place but you'll save more by searching for the best price and you'll end up with what you want rather than what they have.
November 5, 2007 12:51:30 AM

Yea thats a good point. I'll see what I can come up with.

Thanks for all the help people!
