I finally gathered up enough money to replace my current rig which is begining to show its age. I've done a fair amount of research on all the parts and believe it will be a solid system but some extra input can never hurt. The one thing that I am not totally sure on is the power supply, as you will see on my parts list that I'll place a link to at the bottom of this post, I plan to run sli and want to make sure I'll have enough power to avoid any problems. As far as the rest of the build any advice you have or problems that you spot I'd greatly appreciate hearing it. Thanks for any input.

For me, i would change the Motherboard to x38 or x48 (CF) and go with ATI 4870 or 4850.

Drop the RAM to DDR2-800. You don't need 1066 RAM.

Change video to 4850 which completely smashes 8800GT(S).


If you are serious about performance, Intel smacks AMD into next month.

However, that is the best AMD CPU to get right now. BEs are nice.

+1 for the x38 or x48 mobo.
