Hey, I am looking for suggestions on my system configuration.
I am a bit confused on my choice of graphic card. I seeking something affordable, say not more than 250 canadian.
And I would be using this configuration for 2d animation and playing games.
Following is the configuration

Processor : Intel Core i7 920
Motherboard : Asus P6T Deluxe V2
Graphic Card : Evga GeForce 9800 GTX+ 512 mb
RAM : OCZ 6gb DDR3 PC3 12800 1600 mhz tripple channel
Sound Card : Creative 7.1 Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium Fatality Pro
Pwer Supply : Crosair CMPSU 850TX 850W SLI Ready 80+ Certified
HDD : Samsung Spinpoint F1 HD103UJ 1TB
DVD Drive : LG BD/HD DVD/16x DVD+/- RW GCC H20LK
Case : Antec Nine Hundred Two ATX Mid Tower

Please give me a feedback on the above.
Thank you all.

Everything looks good except video and PSU.
Instead of 9800, you should buy 4770 (cheaper, better).
The psu is overkill. You can save some money buying something like Corsair 650W and add to buy a better video card.

If I buy Crosair 650W then what video card would you suggest.
Also I had a question regarding the OS. Vista 32 bit or 64 bit??
Thank you for suggestion.

I would go for a Radeon HD 4870 or an Nvidia GTX 260.

You will be wanting a 64 bit operating system if you are using 6GB of RAM, as 32 bit can only utilize a maximum theoretical of 4GB (slightly less is real world use).

You didn't say anything about your monitor. Tell us what monitor you have then I will be able to tell what gpu you need.
OS has to be on 64 bit to be able to use the 6 gb.

Initially I was planning Samsung Syncmaster 245T or Dell 2408WFP. But again it's a bit too expensive. So, don't know yet what I am getting in terms of monitor. May be you can guys can suggest.
Thank you. I really appreciate for your feedback.

So if you intend to use a bigger monitor then I suggest you buy at least 4890 or 275 GTX.
Problably because is cheaper and you can save some money.

If you want to spend extra, do it but make sure you buy a gpu with a decent warranty like EVGA or BFG.
