Hello there TheAntiMother "n00b" here, I am building a new pc and here are the specs. Please tell me what you think about them.

ALSO
*I was thinking about waiting for the hd radeon 48570 x2 to come out so it can be my single card solution instead of just going for the SLI config of my two 9800 gx2 WHICH SHOULD I GO FOR*

If its better and I choose to go for the Hd radeon do I have to get diffrent kind of motherboard and ram since they are both SLI ready specialy because my mainboard is 780i.

Please help figure out what i am doing and should do

Thank you
Peace and Much Love "TheAntiMother"

Wait for the ATI.

Get an x48 board or wait and get an x58 or whatever it is at the end of the year.

would that board or kind of board be for the crossfire cards?
48570 x2?

Yes X48 is for crossfire, as well as P45. Any nVidia boards such as 790 are for SLI. SLI boards from nVidia are not as stable and not as good overclockers as Intel chipsets.

The new ATI cards blow nVidia out of the water. There is no reason to go SLI right now, unless you have an insane amount of cash to spend and want to SLI GTX 280s.

Ok then 48570 x2 it is XD
one more question though should I change the type of RAM I have since its SLI ready or what?
Can you tell me what you think of My computer specs? so far *just cross out the GPU and the motherboard :p  and RAM if needed*

thank you very much Proximon

you need to get a 64 bit OS if you truly want 4gb of memory and if you want more later i would go with microsoft Vista ultimate 64 bit.

why go for the 64 bit OS?
Ive heard many flaws about the 64 bit?
How is it better than the 32 bit?
