I wanted it for gaming. Before I couldn't even play CoD4, so Crysis didn't even enter my mind. Case - Coolermaster 690 Mobo - Evga 790i FTW CPU - Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 3.16 GHz standard CPU cooler - Zalman Blue LED edition 120mm GPU - 9800 GTX+ PSU - Silent P&C 750W RAM - Kingston HyperX 2GB CD Drive - LG 22x DVD+-R HDD - WD 640 (Have plans to RAID later on) I think this is an upgrade from my E-Machine Pentium 4 Whats your thoughts More about : rig kelfen January 4, 2009 1:16:51 PM intel motherboards are more stable I would stay away from NVIDIA chipsets. case is more of a preference but I love my antec 900 with these suckers http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I would go for 4850 Ram my favorite is mushkin Proximon January 4, 2009 3:47:34 PM +1 For another thing, you are paying a whole lot of money for a fancy SLI board and then putting a midrange card on it. Get a good P45 motherboard such as the Gigabyte UD3P, then with the money you just saved get a Sapphire 1GB 4870: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Next, ditch the cooler and get a good one from this list: http://www.frostytech.com/top5heatsinks.cfm Except for the Sunbeam, which does not fit well on the UD3P... Get the Xigmatek.
