Oooooh. He originally had the wrong link. He had a link to a case that used BTX, thats why I said it didn't work. Haha my bad! Yeah the 8800GTS is a good card to get that will keep you up to date for a while.

I agree with Atomic Rooster. The 8800GTS is faster and DX10 supported for a lower price. The GX2 are a little too bloated for what it can provide.

yea, very nice build, why not DXX?
