Would like to use it as a media machine as well HDMI to TV may even look at a TV tuner but thats an addition for later on Case: HAF 932 $160 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... My current build uses the antec 900 although this was effective for cooling (think wind tunnel) it is still a little two cramped for a dual gpu setup and far to noisy. Motherboard GA-X58-UD5 $290 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Looks like a solid build OC potential and SATA 3 i think the UD7 version would be overkill. RAM $245AUD (newegg has it unavailable) G-skill Tridant RAM "F3-12800CL6T-6GBTD " 6-7-6-18-2N 2GBx3 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... CPU: Core i7 920 aiming for a 3.2 to 3.6 OC $290 Heatsink: Noctua NH-U12P $75 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Graphics: XFX HD 5850 $324 if i bought today adding a second card in later. as im waiting til april at least for this componant not sure. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... PSU: OCZ Z Series Gold OCZZ850M 850W $240 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Modular, 80+ gold certified a must have Total $1624 I have 2 500gb seagate Sata 2 hdd to use in the build suggestions for a good boot disk? also have a blu-ray burner and monitor to reuse. EDIT:: any suggestions for a roomy cheap case, needs to be quiet, shinny lights always a bonus More about : gaming media computer 2000 MadAdmiral a b 4 Gaming February 25, 2010 11:55:03 AM Do you only need what's listed for $2,000? I'm confused by the 5850. Any $2,000 PC would be able to get an HD 5970... Anything that isn't listed would be fine from your build. HSF: Prolimatech Megahalems Rev.B $65. Add two 120mm fans to that, so add about $20. RAM: Mushkin Enahnced Redline 3x2 GB 1600 mhz CAS Latency 6 $250 GPU: HD 5970 $650 Case: HAF 922 $90 after rebate Total: $1,854. Unfortuantely, an SSD is just out of budget right now. Which isn't too bad because the prices will drop a lot in the coming months, allowing you to get a bigger, more useful one later. m 0 l BlackKnight7891 February 25, 2010 7:08:43 PM Most of the HD5970 i have seen in australian stores are between $800 and $1200. A hd5870 is going for around $650 im considering that card instead. I'm not looking to buy the graphics card until after march to see what happens when nvidia releases thier new line m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !

That said, the 5870 is still an excellent card and will not disappoint you. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
