Hello everyone, i've been a reader for long time, and now i'm posting to get good reviews and comments.

I'm planning to get a new computer within the next two weeks.

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: within the next two weeks, the sooner the better.

Purpose: Gaming, surfing the net and Designing.

Budget: $1600-$1700, the cheaper the better.

Parts not required: Keyboard, Mouse, Speaker, Monitor and Soundcard.

i'm going for GTX 470 SLI

Overclocking : NO

Monitor Resolution: 1900*1200
i already own Samsung 25.5 LCD
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

HDD: 1 TB, trying to get 2x500 GB .. and i want it to be SATA 3.0

RAM : i need 8 GB .. ??

The things which i need some help from u guys are .. the following.

I want a good and reasonable in price Mobo which supports i7 and SLI

I know nothing about i7 processors which will be great for the SLI

SO .. i need an ASUS Mobo or Gigabyte which supports i7 and SLI

also recommend for me the RAM and a good Case !

thats my real problem, but i'm not done yet.

I live in Asia > The Middle East > The Gulf.

I live in Sultanate of Oman, and i can't find a website which ships to my country, like newegg or cyberpowerpc.

Also amazon is not shipping to my country. So if you guys have alternatives plz write them down.

Because i might bring these parts from UAE, Duabi .. or i might try to get them through Ebay.

Recommendations ??? :pt1cable:
