Yuk... Those prices actually suck... And it is Intel, which is overpriced... Ok. Here is what you want to get. By the looks of it, you have about a 1,700 budget. So get this stuff. Ready?

MOBO and CPU-

Video Card- Buy two of these and put them in SLi, plus they are PCI Express, and will be less then $400!!
http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...130-214&depa=1
REMEMBER, BUY TWO IF YOU CAN!!

RAM- Honestly, I would get more RAM, but it is up to you. I will provide 2 links to ram, both are good. The first one is 100 more, but for 1 GB, and it is WAY BETTER RAM!! BEST RAM IN THE WORLD RIGHT NOW!!

BEST- http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/Produc...tCode=80097-21

REALLY GOOD, 512MB Only...-

Second One is like the Second Best in the World Right now, but that could be argued. Anywho, use those links, and build that, then pwn everyone! BTW, remember, this setup is AMD64 (better then Intel P4) and is dual PCI EXPRESS!!! in SLi setup! One of the best PC setups on the market right now!

SLI is basically a way to link up 2 video cards so then they help out each other, therefore making it more efficient to process games
