Not bad. But if you're going with the SLI option, you should at least get 2x GTX 260 896MB cards. They scale extremely well in SLI and will perform way better than the 9800GT SLI setup.

It doesn't matter in this case. He's looking for the wildest computer he can get his hands on.

Since your REALLY want a good computer, I will only make two suggestions.
If you aren't going to overclock I see no point of buying the CPU cooler, stay with stock. (That could save you some money)
Also you don't need 12 gigs of ram, go down to 8 or even 4. (Save you a lot of money)


Jesus, guess the economy didn't hit everyone

Edit: I don't think you need you need 1.5 TB of memory, you probably only need like 750 GB.
Don't worry, even if you cut down on this setup, your uncle will still "Trip"

I don't think he's interested in "cutting down on costs". I'll post links to the best possible rig you could build, but it will be expensive.
