Nice. However in my personel oppions why spend ALL tha t money on two geforce 7800s? I mean if you do that at least get really good CPU like AMD 4500 or so.

its a little bit to much for me right now... but I'm just wanting to get my computer running (and that means I'm getting one 7800 to get it running the other will come later)

I think you'd be better off with a single core. 3000+, 3200+, 3500+ or an FX.

Oh yeah, i didn't see that you put that there. I'm with the dude above, don't get it. Not enough support for it. Wait for Vista.
