  1. eyefinitity is a tech, not a card. id go with ati 5850, and a phenom II x4 965 blk ed to start.
  2. $820AR +100 OS
  3. batuchka nice build compiled. just my 2 cents. I had used the NZXT N59 case on my brother in laws build, and had to sand the optical drive door to get it to close properly. Not a bad choice though.

    The other might be a HSF, for overclocking. I have a 955 BE system and recommend the CM Hyper 212 plus, using the two 120 mm fans for push/pull. I can run at 4 Ghz and top out at 58c with OCCT linpack. I run 3.8 Ghz 24/7. The thing is huge though. Here's a link inside a Cooler Master Storm Scout Case.

    It was very nice to compile a list for the OP. A very decent system for less than a grand. He will have to add an OS, unless he is running Linux, which for gaming defeats the purpose.

    I just built this PC 2 days ago. I took advantage of a great bundle deal which is still available for now.

    It seems to be a really killer system. You may want to add in a aftermarket cooler but I have been impressed with the stock cooler and its temps. I haven't ran stress tests on it but with the stock cooler and the antec 900 case my idle temps have been 21c so I feel like I can do a mild overclock with no problems.

    batuchka has built a really solid system too.

    Good luck!
