Talking New build(final hopefully)

yeah so im building a new pc and this is what im thinking bout getting in it:

CPU:
http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...546&CatId=2396
MoBo:
http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...879&CatId=2051
Vid card:
http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...917&CatId=1558
PSU:
http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...309&CatId=1483
Ram:im getting four sticks of this
http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...992&CatId=2033

keyboard and mouse are the G11 and G7 and im getting a sceptre 20.1" moniter.also the reason i got the E6850 is cuz i do not intend on OCin and the reasoni got a 680i mobo is cuz i plan on getting another 8800 when the 9800 comes out

also will this run 64bit vista ok?

looks good, first off, check newegg to see if they have any of those cheaper, also, im not sure, but id double check that the PSU can handle 2 8800s. and id maybe invest in a little bit better of a case, like an antec 900 or P180/190 or a Lian Li. Just make sure you get something you really like and you think youd truly be happy with.

Get the Q6600 if you're not OCing, it performs better than the E6850 with no overclock.

That's a nice PSU, but overkill. Get this, it will easily power SLI 8800GTXs. It's also much better quality.

64 bit processor, 64 bit vista. It works.

You're crazily overpaying for your crap though
