Ultimate Gaming Rig!

Hello everyone I'm looking around for a future upgrade.
I think I'm willing to spend around 2000/2500 max
at least 500 is reserved for when the GTX3 series comes and my OC 8800GT SLI is working fine for the moment. using an 750 Watt antec PSU bronze certified Core2Duo @ 3.2GHz and 4Gb RAM @ 800MHz

I would like reccomendations for some good CPU RAM and MOBO
I am curently using a Thermaltake Armour but thinking of buying an other case.

just note I want to stick with Intel and the Nvidia 3 series that has yet to be released.

All reccomendations are welcome!

  2. put a couple 5850s or a 5970 in there, will penform better than the non-existent gt300 almost for sure.
  3. looks like it's going to be cheaper than i tought!

    hmm might be that radeon is better but I'm somewhat pulled toward Nvidia.
    Don't actually have a clue why..

    P.S. yes XFX hypnotized me as well :o
