Ahh, Now I see where your going at. The cheapest 260GTX is $240. Getting two in SLI would equal $480 and you would get a 3DMark Score of about 13K-14K. I agree that it could be a better deal, but That just means more Heat pouring out of the case with the two 260GTX's.

I spent a hell of a lot of time looking for a benchmark with a GTX 260 in SLI but I can find one for my life. T_T

And the 4870X2 is already figured into the price. Your really talking about a $70 difference here, but if you want to nickle and dime, You could go with a 260GTX SLI.

I linked the video card in the first post before. It's right here:
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16814102768

And it means that there are two GPU's(Graphic Proccessing Units) on one card. If you want to get that with any other card, you have to buy two cards and SLI or Crossfire them.

OK
Now I have to change all the .com's to .ca's for newegg shipping to Canada. Click on all the links and add each item to the cart, then go to the top right and click view cart. Should give you a subtotal and a code to put in where you live.

DVD Drive
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16827151173
Case
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16811112141
Hard Drive
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16822136284
Video Card
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16814102768
Power Supply
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16817139006
Ram
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16820146777
Motherboard
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16813188025
CPU
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16819115041


Operating System
Windows Vista - http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16819115041
Windows XP - http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16832116378
((Above links are wrong))

Like I said before, DX10 is only available in Vista, So It's recommended if your building this gaming PC that you get it.

Keyboard & Mouse:
Keyboard
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16823175103
Mouse
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16826153003

Add all the items that you want to the newegg cart, some are optional like the keyboard and mouse. You can choose what OS, as that's your choice.

All those links link you to the Canada Newegg site so prices might be slightly different, but mostly the same.

how the hell did it come out to $2,600!?! (did not read the whole thing)
No computer should be spent that much (at once). If you are going to spend that much, might as well go with the i7 as a processor.

A good computer to max out most games out now should only be $1,600 with OS.

Tell me what exactly you want to actually do with the computer, and i will post you all the parts needed that will suit you.
