Haha, i love these build posts. Bring them on....muhahahha

Holy mother...a SCSI and the first one I've seen on here. Props for that. I just ordered a new video card just now and it's almost the same one you got, but a little better. It's got a higher clock and offer for a free COD2 game. Check it out:

eVGA 256-P2-N517-AX Geforce 7800GT 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 VIVO PCI Express x16 Video Card - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130249

One question though. How are you going to get that SCSI to interface with the motherboard? DOn't you need like a SCSI controller or something?

I like your setup, but isee your into gaming, because you got a 7800gt, well in that case i suggest you get an AMD 64. With an AMD you could get such a nice setup on a mobo. Your cpu/mobo costs like 770. If you have 7070 bucks for an AMD you could get.
DFI nF4 SLI Infinity Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813136164
and a
AMD Athlon 64 X2 4600+ Manchester 1GHz FSB Socket 939 Dual Core Processor Model ADA4600BVBOX - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103545
or
AMD Athlon 64 4000+ San Diego 1GHz FSB 1MB L2 Cache Socket 939 Processor - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103529
And with the 4000+ you perform better in games and you save liek 250-250 dollars. So youcan upgrade you video card to a 7800gtx and possibly get a DFI sli expert board (in my sig) or an Abit fatility.!!!!!THE two best boards EVEVER>

I say the same as treehugger, but, with one change: If you're into gaming, get a faster, single core. Even with the 4800+, when you're playing games, you're only using one core, and the 4800+ will perform like a 4000+, single core cpu. So, if it's gaming, go with a faster 4000+, or even an fx-57 if you have the money. Otherwise, if you really don't care about the difference or want to be as futureproof as you can be, then, by all means, go with a dual core. But yes, AMD. PLEASE NO INTEL. Lol, sorry if it seems like I'm shouting, but I am. The prescott core... *sigh* just doesn't do well in gaming, especially paired with an intel, when, compared to a similar setup with amd, when amd woops intel's arse in gaming. Period. So yeah, amd....

All right, thanks TreeHugger. Oh, do I need to add a fan to that heatsink?

Without a fan, that thing can act as a BBQ grill.

i would get a opteron 939 cpu instead of the FX cause u can overclock it to 3GHz and will save a ton of money and get a DFI Sli motherboard cause theyre amazing for overclocking and instead of that heatsink get a zalman also u need an SCSI controller not an IDE one lol
