Hello, I am trying to build a gaming computer ultilizing the new SLI technology that has just come out. I really want a gaming computer that I will not have to upgrade for a *very* long time and I thought that a high-end SLI AMD-based computer would do the trick. I do not want to put it together myself, and am prepared to absorb the cost of someone doing it for me. But, I found a site, http://www.cyberpowersystem.com that lets you pick the parts. I compared the prices with this site and Alienware's, Falcon Northwest, and so on, and this site, with the same parts is significantly less expensive. So, I think this is the place to go.

Here is the url for configuring an SLI computer. http://www.cyberpowersystem.com/highendsystem/ultrasli....

I was hoping someone with the time and/or inclination could puruse this site and let me know which configuration would be best for me. I play every type of game and am most looking forward to Half Life 2 and WoW. My real questions are do I really need an FX-55 or would a 4000+ do just fine? Is there a significant performance difference? What kind of RAM, Hard drive? Sound card? Case? Monitor? I do know I want the NVIDIA GeForce 6800 GT 256MB 16X PCI EXPRESS video card for both SLI slots. O, should I just get the one card now and the other later when needed?

I realize this might take some time and I *very* much appreciate any help you can give me. Thanks a lot!!
