Yes it will, but why are you planning a computer so far in advance? Technology will completely change by summer. The 8xxx series graphics cards are already being phased out. And by summer, a new card will replace the new card thats replacing the 8xxx series.

Ask what parts to choose when the time comes to actually buy them.

Whether your build is good enough? We've told you, the computer hardware market is going to be very different come Summer '08. Select your parts then.
