You might want to list the individual pieces since you can only see that wishlist if you're logged onto a Newegg account. You'll get much more feedback that way. the last resort December 20, 2008 3:20:30 AM looks really nice. two things: could try stepping up the black series WD drives, might have a performance gain there. other: did not see an aftermarket heatsink, not sure if you have one, or want one, but if you are OC'ing, might be a good choice. Pick up the Xigmatek 1283 with retention bracket, cant go wrong with those.

Your PSU is good for 1 4850 GPU, but lacks the power to utilize the crossfire capability of your Asus P5Q Pro motherboard. I would suggest dumping $50 more into a 750watt corsair PSU. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 4850 is the best value of all the ATI 4000 series cards, but I prefer the MSI one for the cooling and customer support. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... All of your other components are solid. Outlander_04 December 20, 2008 3:59:45 AM The HIS is the best of the 4850's because of the cooler . Good choice . The power supply will run all that fine , but it will be working hard at load . Id step up to 550 - 650 watts and have it run cool and quiet paq7512 December 20, 2008 4:18:32 AM For $20 more - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
