What i'd like to know is the PSU has enough connectors (rails) for everything because i am unfamiliar with that completely also if i can find a cheaper one that is stable enough to support everything plus reliable . Also if i should go with the 8800 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130327 Instead of the 9800. Would like to know if fps wise they are identical or if the 9800 is clearly superior. Any input would be greatly appreciated and look forward to it because i'd like to make this PC last me a good while. Also, as far as CPU goes, id like the quad core instead of the duo 3.0 just because i *hope* to overclock the quad a little.
Oh yeah, the cost is 1.1k if i can go lower thats great but i dont want to hinder performance so help me out!
I own the case that your thinking about getting. For the most part it's a pretty nice case. Pretty roomy inside. Good airflow. hard drive rack w/ the silencers are nice. It does however, have a few flaws. I notice with my own that the side panel is a really tight fight. Pulling off the front grill can be nerve racking; It's on there really tight. Plugging anything into the top (headphones, mic, whatever) can be nerve racking as well. I think it flexes too much. And the case fans are a little noisy; especially the one on the side. Otherwise it's a really solid case.
As for the rest of your build just follow the suggestions of the guy above.
Why_Me: He linked to the P5Q not the P5Q Pro. The normal P5Q is NOT a Crossfire board. But of course, there is still no reason to go with it with MSI boards being cheaper. Still thought I would point that out to avoid confusion.
4850 is also $199 uses even less power and beats 9800GTX in the majority of benchmarks.
