i looked into getting 7600GT's in SLI. woefully underpowered compared to a single card at the combined price. SLi dosent even come close to doubling the performance. probably 150% even with games that are optimized for it.

as long as i dont loose it in front of my parents and completely blow it which i havent done in several years...ill probably get the last hunk of cash i need for my 8800GTS 320 ill also be picking up a better PSU and another gig of ram to make 2.

only worry i have is that the new sticks of ram wont run at the speed my current ones are. then i would have to redo my OC

Why the hell would you get that CPU when you could get the Core 2 Duo E6320 for like $10 more?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115015

And seriously, SLI 7600GTs is a waste of money. For the $200 you spend on that, you could get a nice factory overclocked 8600GTS:

I have that memory, and it's great, but there's no reason to get RAM like that with that setup. You could spend $90 and get some great G.Skill DDR2-800 with just slightly higher timings. Use the $30 you save and get a Core 2 Duo instead:

ok heres ur answers to ur question free

1. I needed to go with that ram because Gskill ram is not compatable with ASUS Mobos
2. On a tight budget and thats the most expensive card i could get (plus anything is better than a Geforce 5200FX which i have in this old PC)
3. My ram timings on the corsair is better than the Gskill
4. I like AMD and a 5600+ can beat a E6320 in some benchmarks
5. And i already ordered them last night when CF was down =(
My order is still on step 3 and 2 parts are being shipped from CA (case and Video card)the rest from NJ =)

Wait...so are you only getting one 7600GT?

The G.Skill RAM will still work, just because it's not on the compatibility list doesn't mean it won't work.

Assuming you're overclocking by the fact you're getting an aftermarket heatsink/fan, the E6320 will blow the 5600+ away.

You could get an E6550 for $185 It has a 1333Mhz FSB so you'de have to get a mobo like this one to support it http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131142 That mobo has a newer chipset 650i versus the 590i the one you selected has and it is cheaper to account for the extra money you woul dhave to spend on the cpu.
