Default New Sli Gaming rig (Budget)

Hello, I am saving for a new system that i want to build with around $600 dollars or so. I want a SLi based mobo with 2 PCI express graphics cards that can kick the shit out of battlefield 2, FEAR, and Other new games at high settings, with a nice enough AMD processor to handle it as well, and a good power supply that i can count on. I have all the other shit but i am buying just these three parts for a estimate of 600$ or less if possible ive done it before, but my wish list on newegg.com was deleted. Anyone have ideas that you can recommend.

What the most important factor on a gpu that shows you what it can really do , the core, clock memory, or the pixel pipelines im not 100% sure, i have a pretty good idea but i need to no for sure, Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Bryan

Well for under $600, your not going to get that great of everything, because sli gets pricy. Get like a 6800gs. Nice Intel 805 processor (dual core budget) 2gb corsehair (sp) value select ram, 80gb hatchi 7200rpm hard drive. 400+ watt psu, and a Coolermaster case, and call that beast good to go.

If you're going to use SLI, try to go for a better processor. All those GPU's will bottleneck that 3200+ like crazy. Oh and is this $600 for just the motherboard and two video cards? Or is it for everything?
