OK I've already put a bit of thought into this badboy. To me, this is a great price for a rig of this power, and I thought I would be spending a bit more, so I'm quite happy, and even considering tossing in a WD Raptor to match the one I already have for RAID 0ing two Raptors, but we will see.
It looks good and I think the only recommendations you receive will be personal preference. With that said, you can pick up a 2 x 2 set of OCZ Reaper 1066 ram for the same price and it might be worth it to take a look at the Antec 1200 case. The 900 (mid) receives rave reviews and the 1200 is supposed to be better and bigger.
if you buy soon i would go with the 8800 gts 512. its the same as the 9800gtx just a little slower. and i would look at the 610 psu from pc power and cooling. its only 109 from newegg and it will run your system just fine.
Yes I am going to wait for the new card...it's a matter of days. I'll probably be content figuring out weather I should buy that BenQ FP241W from NCIXUS.com or BenQ's E-Store...who offers a better dead pixel plan?
I do actually hope that the new cards aren't that good...because if they are truely badass I should toss the nVidia chipset and go with an Intel one because like you've mentioned, and I've researched into over and over again, they are faster and sometimes more stable. If those cards are so nasty badass then I have no need to SLI and I have to pick out a new motherboard. More research!
It's red. Crossfire edition. Noone buys it so it has to be cheap to sell stock.
Aside from that they are all the same (blue/black/red) I think.
OK cool, yea, I'll get the red one then! If they truely are the same...I'll have to do some spec. checking. Only thing I noticed is that red one doesn't say ATX anywhere...but it MUST be an ATX powersupply, right?
