(The one I got was on sale from CompUSA, might consider getting another one after hearing how this PSU isn't so great)
The pc i'm planning to build will be solely for gaming, i do plan to utilize sli down the road but not right away. Budget is roughly $1000-$1200. Already have moniter as well and will keep it for the time being, possibly upgrade it in the near future. I'm sure I missed some information that should have been provided but I hope this is enough for now. Thank you everyone in advance for helping to set me on the right path!
The DHX version of the RAM is faster w/ 4-4-4-12 timings vs. the 5-5-5-18 of the other RAM. Go for the faster timings.
What size is your monitor? I ask because if you're using a 19" or below, then I would not spend $250 on an SLI motherboard. Just go with a nice single card motherboard with a more stable / compatible Intel chipset.
I eventually want to go the SLI route and this mobo seems to be the best bet for me. Every mobo has it's up's and down's, really it comes down to preference. What mobo's have you been looking at Waspy?
Jaythe I've been looking at some 680i motherboards instead of the 780i stuff since I don't see myself ever going tri-SLI. The one I was/am heavily considering was/is the ASUS Striker Extreme. Reviews I've read say it's as good a mobo as you are going to get for a nForce chipset.
