Wanting to see if this system I picked out is everything I need to make it. Also I don't know much in the area of the SLI video card setup. What would be the best way of going with the parts I picked. Is the video card I picked out good enough or should I go SLI and if so what 2 should i get. Thanks!!!

Ok sorry for the link.

The link doesn't work but myself and anyone else here will tell you to get the single fastest card you can afford. At this time the 8800GT is the best option for video cards, if you can find one. It's faster than the 8800GTS and slightly slower than the 8800GTX but cheaper than either. As I said I didn't see which card(s) you chose but if it's slower than the 8800GT then I would just get a better single card.

He mentioned SLI, that's why I only listed Nvidia cards. I am a fanboy, I'm a fan of technology.

Generally a good single video card is all you will need - especially if you have to ask which means your are not an enthusiast who needs a tricked out system to compete with other enthusiasts and for bragging rights.
More important than providing a budget is - what do you want to do with the system? What applications or software? What tasks or games?
YRDYR - Your requirements dictate your requirements.
In addition, please provide specs on your system. It may affect the best choice and you might have other bottlenecks (e.g. memory) or limits (e.g. psu) to consider.

Ok...

My opinion would be:

Power supply - spend a little more money and get a pc power and cooling. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817703009 <---this thing is a tank, makes other 800+Watt Power Supplies its bitch.

Motherboard: If you want to do SLI that motherboard isn't going to work. You picked out a fast motherboard (good for OCing your Q6600) but you can't do SLI without a NVIDIA chipset. 680i chipset is very good option if your set on SLI. If it were me i would go with Asus. Talking about a fan boy....thats me :-)

Video card: You would be much better off getting the 8800GT = bang for the buck. NVIDIA is releasing their 9 series in feb. If you want the best in the v-card dept. get something to hold you over and blow your wad then.

Hard drive: ???? You cant get a 500GB hdd for the same price.

All the other items you picked out were ok or they didn't matter for performance.
