Re: I'm in search of a New Computer
i would recommend getting the 680i chipset.
with that kind of budget, why dont you throw two 150 gb western digital raptors in raid 0? 300gb of raptor in raid 0 > one 320 gb drive imo
also def get the 8800gtx. its well worth the money. just look up some benchmark, its insane.
as for memory, i would prob get a little bit better brand. patriot seems more like budget ram than high performance.
other than that, it looks pretty good. maybe a larger psu.
