Incase he wants to go SLI he'll have plenty of power.

Thanks for taking ur time man! Really appreciate it. My boy needs just the rig, nothing else, so all that extra cash can be put to more powerful hardware.

I think clubit.com offers g0 for sure

thats the best IMO. dont worry about the site, its owned by newegg

EDIT:
2gb of DDR3 will be faster for some older games, but newer games likey Crysis can use more than 2GB of ram so in that case DDR2 will be better. theres always some trade off

When is this due Q4 2008?
im almost 99% sure that it doesnt require ddr3 but please if it does tell me right

this is DDR3 1600 so he will be able to OC the shit out of the whole system, although i would stick with 2GB of ram for now, you dont much more, and memory prices drop uber fast.

A couple mintues is like a couple hours to gamers. He wants the best of the best. If he wants more space he can just get a 1tb harddrive for storage space.

I would be careful with Raid0 though cause if you lose one drive it's all gone my friend.

Then do raid 1 with two raptors.

Also, if he did regular backups then he'd be fine.

I currently have raid 0 right now, been having it for more than a year + I have 500G external HDD where I do all the backups.

Again this build is not for me, its for my friend. I am personally waiting til Jan to get the new Intel processor and the new 9800gtx.
