ASUS Sabertooth X58 - This comes with 5 Years warranty, also has very good features... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... RAM - I would suggest 6GB for a X58 setup http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submi...|20-226-028^20-226-028-TS,20-231-304^20-231-304-TS,20-231-335^20-231-335-TS,20-145-286^20-145-286-TS Graphic card - I would suggest you not to get the GTX 480s...There are newer cards which will be launched by both ATI and Nvidia by this year-end, so get those... PSU - If going with Nvidia cards, stick with atleast 700W+ PSU - Preferably from Corsair/ XFX/ PCP&S/ Silverstone/ Seasonic/ CM Real Power or Silent PRO/ Antec TP series... SSD - If the budget allows, get a SSD for boot... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submi...|20-227-542^20-227-542-TS,20-226-151^20-226-151-TS,20-148-357^20-148-357-02%23,20-227-550^20-227-550-TS HDD - Samsung F3 1TB And as you will be buying parts after sometime, I would suggest you come back when you are ready to buy as we can suggest newegg combos, which would save good money... m 0 l ggsxt September 24, 2010 1:05:42 PM Thank you for the very good advice. I think I will buy an SSD after I build the computer. I am wondering when the next graphics cards will come out so I know when I should have a purchase date for my build. m 0 l gkay09 September 24, 2010 1:08:24 PM ^ ATI cards might be out this October, but not sure whether the 68xx or the 67xx series... As for the Nvidia cards, mostly in the mid or late Q4... m 0 l ggsxt September 24, 2010 8:12:53 PM would black friday specials apply to the other parts besides the graphics card? m 0 l ggsxt October 2, 2010 10:55:16 PM I need to build this immediately.
