How much will this cost, where are you getting it, or are you building it yourself? These 3 questions I must have answers to my man!

BTW, keep the original MOBO, get a 5.1 24Bit Sound Blaster Live Soundcard, and other stuff, but I'll tell you after I know the answers to my above questions

ALSO, upgrade you Hardrive to SATA, since your MOBO has it supported, and it is much better then ATA100 or ATA133

yea i live in canada 2, thanks for showing me NCIx. there prices are great. before i used tigerdirect.

im getting almost the same configuration as you except im beefing up the motherboard to a SLI, and getting the PCI-E version of the 6600GT since its 50 cheaper, getting a cheaper case/ps and no soundsystem, averages to 1200 i think
