Sandybridge will be available in Israel next month, I don't know if I should wait and if it will matter that much for gaming on 1900x1200 as GPU takes the most hits on such resolutions.

Thanks for your help

Looks like a nice rig, I'd not worry much over the possible 2-3 fps advantage that an overclocked SandyBridge might give in a few games....

X58 rigs are still the flagship mainboards.

Would my PSU be able to hold xfire 6950 in the future under full load?

Unless you overclock the whole system (CPU, memory and videocards) to their absolute max, there will be no problems at all, and even if you did, it should still be enough, if just barely.

Thanks for comments, anyone's else opinions please? :)

Well I am looking for xfire in the near future and don't you think that 6950 in xfire will be enough for anything in the near 2-3 years? And cost like one 580?
