I was wondering what every one thought about the Asus 8800 GTX Card. I'm a big fan of Nvidia and ASUS I'm building a new rig with Intel Quad core and OCz 6 g off DDr3 ramalong with a PSU of 750 Watts. I'M using this computer mainly for flight simming and photography. Also i have a 24 inch flat screen monitor. 1280 x 1224 . I want to get a second monitor also. Any thoughts would be great. Oh yea looking at the Asus p53E mother board. Thanks Trex01

Your choice in components is outdated and probably overpriced.
FYI, the 8800GTX is nearly 4 years old now and the P45 chipset offers the same performance (better overclocking even) then a X38 based motherboard (P5E3, BTW) for quite a bit less.

Look into an ASUS or Gigabyte P45 based motherboard and a 4850, 4870 1Gb, GTS 250 or GTX 260 core 216.
Unless you are going to CrossFire a pair of ATI cards, you should not need anything more than a quality Corsair, PCP&C, Seasonic, Enermax or Antec Earthwatts 500w PSU.
Stay away from DDR3, DDR2 800/1066 offers the same performance and costs quite a bit less.

I believe the 250 is the new designation for the 8800/9800 class GPU.

A 260 or 275 should be as fast as a pair of 8800s.
