  1. Nice build, how are you going to use the machine?
  2. Hey, looks like we had some of the same ideas, what did yours cost?

    Antec 900 case
    Intel Core Duo E6750 2.66 gHz
    Abit IP35-E motherboard
    WD 250 gb HDD (16MB cache)
    2x 1gb G.SKILL DDR2 800 mem
    Aerocool Zerodba 500W modular PSU
    ATI Radeon HD2900PRO 512 MB
    LITE-ON 20X DVD/CD burner drive
  3. It will be used mostly for gaming FSX, CoD4, and any other computer-related tasks.
  4. HD3850 instead... almost same price and will beat the 7950GT in newer games. even consider a bit more for the 3850 512MB or 3870
