I've been posted a thread related to this, about new build PC system for gaming. I have budget about $1200 (for now), and i will use
processor : AMD Phenom 9600 US$ 249 (maybe OCed)
Mobo : ?????? US$ 150 (max)
Memory : Corsair TWIN2X2048-6400C4DHX US$ 72
Gr. Card : HIS HD3870 IceQ 3 Turbo 512 MB DDR4 US$ 230
Harddisk : WESTERN DIGITAL WD3200AAKS US$ 86
DVD : ASUS DRW-1814BLT US$ 43
PSU : CORSAIR CMPSU-550VX US$ 104
Case : COOLER MASTER RC-690 US$ 99
All total is $883
Thats my last system hardware, but now i wanna try a Crossfire configuration For future investment (since i've (finally) got Q6600 with 8800GTS (G92) SLI configuration ). Any recomendation, critics are welcome.

Oh... sorry about the title akhilles. You recomended MSI K9A2 Platinum, i've checked that mobo on the site. Pretty cool i think, but in Indonesia that mobo priced for $ 205, $55 more!!! For that much money i could get 120G hdd and for the psu i'm gonna considering change it to 800W. Anyway, for stability for OCing, i can sacrife $55 (even more). Thanks for the input, maybe anyone could correct any of my hardware specification even critics are open.
