All ordered through Tiger.

Was hoping someone has worked with these products, especially the video card/mobo fit. Would eventuall like to get two on the mobo. Also if any conflicts with any of the products used in a combo.
I am trying to stay with 4 core plus and all DDR3. Possible oc with water as soon as I get the other card.
Any suggestions would be most appreciated.Thanks in advance.

^ I like AMD, but frankly saying, the Phenom II X6 doesnt offer very good gaming performance...My suggestion for a high-end gaming rig would be the i7 930 if it will include high powered graphics crossfire...
At stock speeds itself, the 930 outperforms the 3.2GHz 6-core CPU in nearly all the games...And once overclocked to say same levels, am sure the 930 will increase the lead even more...

If you were also into PRO video editing/ rendering and other graphical stuff, then the Phenom II X6 would have got my vote...But for a gaming PC, I dont think so...

^ No offence, but my comment was purely based on taking into considerations the performance of those 2 CPUs and the price range they are in...
Being brand loyal is fine to an extent, but getting which is the best for the money and based on our requirements would be logical...

But just noticed that you have ordered all of it ??

I will as soon as I could figure out if the vid cards would not be to big for the mobo as it takes room for 2 :(

Hopefully the componets will all work fine with each other. Only get so many slots PCIex16(3) Says on the vid card it takes the space of 2 cards. Was hoping to put 2 in then another down the road. Not sure if I can. Been waiting on Tigers staff to respond or at least ASUS.
Looked on youtube to see if ny has made a similiar build so I can see it working. Hate to buy then have to send back.

I would like to stay with AMD/ ASUS with DDR3 ,quad core compliant :) 
I have nothing against the i7 but the price.
I think to build right now and not get ddr3 quad or better would just be outdated in no time. Even though no games are not out yet for the x6 does not mean in 1 year they will not have a way for games to use it.

^ Well if you have nothing against the i7, then check out this CPU + Mobo
i7 930 + ASUS P6X58D-E LGA 1366 Intel X58
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...

RAM
GSKillz 6GB DDR3 1600MHz
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Comes less price - but you get only 6GB and for gaming it has been verified in many articles that there is no significant improvement going over 4GB...

And like I said, the i7 930 + X58 would better suit Dual-Card configuration...
But its your call though...

And as for the other components, change the HDD to Samsung F3 series...they are faster and more efficient...

I would even consider going with the Phenom II X4 955. As mentioned, x6 will offer you no real performance gains.
Quad core has only just beome the big dog for gaming, and in reality the real difference between Quad and dual core comes from the addition of the third core, so there is still quite some time before Quad is used to maximum potential.

You are correct that you do not want to be getting anyhting less than Quad and DDR3.

But, by the time the x6 would be any real benefit for gaming, CPU technology will have moved on quite a bit, so you could get an X6 for far less money then, or more likely buy the new technology of that time.

I really wouldn't buy more than 4gb of RAM, again, gaming is your focus, so anything over the 4gb will not be offering you anything performance wise. I would however spend money on faster 1600mhz RAM, with a latency of 7 ideally.
Should the day come that more than 4gb becomes useful, again you can just buy some more probably for much less at that time (hell, by the time you need more than 4gb for gaming we will likely be playing around with DDR4 or something).

With the money saved, you could go with a 5970 card if you wanted, though you don't really need it, the 5870 is very powerful. You could either save the money or look into the possiblity of taking a step up to the next size monitor and resolution.
Though if you plan on overclocking you likely want to get yourself a Hyper 212+ CPU cool for $30-$40

Ty for the replies. I will look into that mobo, cpu combo with upgades on ram speed.
That alone is a huge savings.
