Final build before order - need opinions on minor tweaks.

Basically , because im a worrying perfectionist , I need the backup of opinion and knowledge that the components below will all fit together to make a whole computer - without OS.

Also , I would like to know if in the future - this would be able to handle adding the following -

1. Another 8800Gt Nvidea
2. Another 2Gb of identicle RAM
3. TV tuner.

Sorry about being so irritating. Also if possible - if you know any good guides on how to build a computer - would you be so kind as to give a link?

  1. That motherboard won't support a second 8800GT.
  2. The Corsair is kinda expensive. These are cheaper & about the same:

    For the SLI mobo (2 x nvidia cards). 650i is the budget one. 680i is the best o/c'er:

    Stay away from the XFX 680i as some people have reported the board generates a high-pitch noise while surfing the Web. It doesn't come from the fans.
  3. Final Build before I order this afternoon - panic sets in.

    Can someone just put my fears to rest that it all goes together? and what are the limitations of the Mobo?
  4. Looks very nice, however if u want to OC then get a DDR2 800 RAM with
    4-4-4-x or lower timings

    ASUS P5N-E SLI is an awesome board, SLI support +1333MHZ CPU support
    + 45nm (Penryn) support
  5. Might wanna get something to cover the naked southbridge on the mobo.. u OCing?
  6. I'm not sure if the 600w psu can power 8800gt x 2. Some members here would recommend a 750w or higher.

    The Antec 850w is pretty good both value & wattage-wise. It's overkill for that sli build, but will last a long while.
