definitely nvidia gtx460 in SLI !!! those babies rock!
and look no further than CM hyper 212+, its dirt cheap and super cooler.
and maybe go for 1000 W psu?

Why not come back a month later? This way we could work out specials and combo deals so you can save a few bucks. The 6XXX cards are due in October (a month) then the Dual GPU 5970 successor in November.

Ahhh thank you, I will wait until october then, hopefuly the 5970 will have some price adjustments? and the 6xxx series will have some cards worth looking at, I was wondering as to when that series was due to be released
