Video: 2x EVGA Geforece 9800GT PSU: PCP&C 750w (dual 8800GTX will my 9800s be ok? also wanted a modular PSU with blue leds, any ideas on a good one?) Ram: Crucial ballistix 4gigs HDD: WD caviar 500gb Cooler: coolermaster hyper TX2 (heard this has mounting issues) Monitor: 2253BW OS: vista 64 bit i will be doing a little over clocking nothing major More about : noob reassurance advice build slomo4sho October 31, 2008 9:57:13 PM I would go with a ASUS P5Q Pro LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and a ASUS EAH4870/HTDI/512M/A Radeon HD 4870 512MB(you can always crossfire later but this should provide about equal performance of your SLI setup) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and the ram I would recomend is G.SKILL PI Black 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Chan http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... The Antec 900 is a pretty good case but I would recommend you also look into the XCLIO A380PLUS-BK http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Btw, did you have a budget in mind? col-p-todd October 31, 2008 10:06:48 PM A good psu is the zalman ZM750-HP and for a cooler the Zalman 9700NT Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer budazz October 31, 2008 11:09:00 PM kind a want to keep it 1400ish with monitor and col p todd that PSU is nice will it handle dual 9800gts cause im a big fan of the geforce kinda want to stay with that in SLI what about the coolermaster hyper 212 that looks nice with the blue/black motiff im going for what you think? will it fit my choice of mobo in the antec 900? also why do u think the p5q pro is better than the p5n-t deluxe?
