  1. Both links are dead, so can't see all of the details, but what is your budget and we can help you better. The nVidia 260 216 core is a good GPU there are other options that might be better, but your on the right track. If we have your budget, we can make sure you get the best system for the budget allowed.
  2. well i was looking to not to spend no more then 800$ i dont need all that other stuff just a good gamin system:)
  3. i still want to use the 260 216... just becouse its a 896mb card i just had a ati his 3850 hd 512 and was not impressed it was a agp but still i was expecting more for that price.... i been using ati so i wanted to give nvidia a try i like there set up and website and all the reviews are top notch on the 260 216 so i would like to stay with it. but like i said its my first build so im open to any advice..... Thanks alot :wahoo:

    +1 for that.

    @OP: Exactly why do you need X48 board? You can't SLI on X48. Get a 4850/4830/4870 if you plan to CrossFire later. Again you don't need 750W unless doing CrossFire. You don't need DDR2 1066 RAM either.
