Question i7 MOBO?? + vid card???

alrighty, i've decided on getting the corei7 920 chip and now need an average motherboard and graphic card to go along with i

can u recommend an average i7 MOBO?? eventually i want to OC the i7 too!

NVIDIA graphic card needs to have one HDMI and one DVI out and be able to play most games but also be fairly cheap, no more than $150 please

oh, and can you recommend a case to go with that please? something not too flashy but quiet for sure!

thanks for your help!!!

the vid cards with 1 VGA, 1 DVI and 1 HDMI.
how does it work?
basically i want to use the DVI and the HDMI connection at the same time (dual monitor), is that possible?

Yea, I dunno. I'm sure you could run a dual monitor setup using the DVI and HDMI ports.

Get a HDMI->DVI converter. DVI and HDMI use the same signal, the only differences being the plug and HDMI's audio ability.
