do you plan to get another 7600gt and set up sli?
whats your budget?
what hard drive are you using?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131569 this is a decent non sli board
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813136166 sli board...
wow i haven't been paying attn to computers for the past month, where have all the s939 sli boards gone? the asus ones were really nice but.. eh.. out of luck.
[edit]theres a wider selecton of motherboards for the skt939 on zipzoomfly.com, that is, if you're willing to try something other than newegg. i'll vouch for them, good quick delivery, a very trustworthy website. 2 day free shipping ain't bad either.

EDIT: Hmm see your setup is alot like what I want. How is the Dual Core?

you won't be upgrading your cpu or anything anytime soon will you? if you plan on doing so in the near future, sli would be a waste of 50 dollars. even more so if you don't plan on purchasing another 7600gt.

yea, no sli for me I decided. But how do you like the AMD 3800+ x2??? Really wanna know how it handles some games, and what you think. I wasnt completely sure about going single or dual core for that processor.

well.. i got the 3800x2 when it first came out, so my idiotic self spent 300 dollars on that processor, if i didn't like it, i would have to kick myself in the face. yeah it's a real good processor. there were a few compatability issues between some programs and dual core earlier during it's release, but those problems have been patched up. in regards to games, i can play all games with this processor, it ususally comes down to video card, but you've got that area down pretty well. um, i've played cs: source, dod: source, hl2, cs 1.6, world of warcraft, guildwars, all the classic blizzard games, and.. solitaire on this computer successfully lol. don't have to worry about dual core interfering with your gaming performance. it's a good processor, you won't be dissapointed.
