I wasnt sure if this is the right forum to post at but I will be happy to have some suggestions.
I need an entire full build for a new machine for the high end gamer.
I'd pay up to 2450 USD ($), a spertacular PC that will keep me satisfied for a long time and run smoothly everything I try to run on or atlesat most of.

I'd also like to know between the Dual SLI diffrences and their effect on the price.
Also please name witch card is better as between the 280GTX and the HD4870 2X.

Thanks alot.
Tom.

This is what you want then for that money. It has dual 4870's (Crossfire), a X48 board, etc... This rig will eat up any game you throw at it including Crysis. Good case with great airfrlow/cooling for Crossfire and/or SLI (4x120mm case fans with room to add three more for a total of 7x120mm case fans), not to mention alot of room to work with. The PSU is more than enough to power it with room to spare incase you want to add more fans, HD's, etc... This is the rig Tom. :) 

btw, move up your FSB (Front Side Bus), to 8.5x400 = 3.4GHz.
