Hi all,

This is my first post! :) 

Anyway, I'm finally going to reward myself with a nice gaming PC. The thing is, I've never built a PC before and know next to nothing about motherboards and how all the other parts come together.

I was hoping you can recommend a motherboard, power supply, and cooling devices for the following parts (other comments and recommendations would be very welcome too!):

  • Intel i7 930
  • 2x Nvidia GTX 460's in SLI
  • 4Gb Corsair XMS3 1333 (2Gb x 2)
  • 1.5 Tb (or so) HDD
  • Something to allow for wifi (like a card or something)
  • Whatever DVD drive is typical

    I have no plans of overclocking or anything, so whatever allows this setup to perform as it should out of the box will do - no need for high-end features if I probably won't use 'em. Also, I plan to some day upgrade to a 2x 480 (or whatever's in the market then) SLI setup in a year or so, so I'd like some power for that if needed.

    I plan to connect this to my HDTV so no need for a monitor :) 

    Thanks a lot!

    I would recommend the Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R, as well
