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.

These are cheaper & about the same: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/129954 http://www.ebuyer.com/product/116755 For the SLI mobo (2 x nvidia cards). 650i is the budget one. 680i is the best o/c'er: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/125082 http://www.ebuyer.com/product/132812 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.

Maziar November 16, 2007 7:28:43 AM 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 Ironnads November 16, 2007 8:25:25 AM Might wanna get something to cover the naked southbridge on the mobo.. u OCing? akhilles November 16, 2007 12:54:27 PM I'm not sure if the 600w psu can power 8800gt x 2. Some members here would recommend a 750w or higher. http://www.ebuyer.com/product/128212 http://www.ebuyer.com/product/125620 http://www.ebuyer.com/product/129282 The Antec 850w is pretty good both value & wattage-wise. It's overkill for that sli build, but will last a long while. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
