Now motherboard:


Thermaltake Armor Series VA8000BWS Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case
Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail

OCZ GameXStream OCZ700GXSSLI 700W ATX12V

  1. I have a 19200*1200 resolution I would like to squeeze teh out of it.

    This build is about $1200.
  2. If you are going to overclock the Rampage Formula get faster DDDR2 RAM like 1066. The E8XXX can do well over 450FBS with air. The RAM might hold you back.

    If you get the Rampage Formula change the thermal compounf on the northbridge and southbridge before you power it up . If you wait untill you run it, The stuff will be hard as a rock.
