My only debate I think is whether or not I should go for the Rampage II. I will be overclocking, partly to see how high, partly for gaming and video rendering performance. I will not be liquid cooling in the near future. I like the look and layout of the P6TD Deluxe better. Thats why I am on that route right now. All of this sets me at about $950. PCVonline is local so I am choosing them, the only better price I found was the CPU and it was only $10, which I will save on shipping. Future upgrades will include SSD (as the value starts to balance out for my taste), sound card perhaps (I will see if I am bothered w/o it), and GPU. The GPU I will either SLI th 260 or upgrade to a new line a little ways down the road, the 260's are quite cheap right now and still perform well in SLI. Please give me some feedback and if you can save me a couple bucks I would be happy to hear it.
I think I would sooner upgrade than go to 3-way. Another thing I have been thinking about, but isnt my priority right now, is my monitor. I would like to get something that performs well at a higher resolution, perhaps on with HD.
