Post I was bored

Here is a good pc

CPU-AMD 3200+. That is the best bet as it has a 10x multiplier which is the best for the money. The only adva tage to a 3500+ is a 11x multplier which is not needed.
Motherboard-DFI Ultra-D This is the best OC'er there is. It can easily be modded to SLI. Yes, SLI and your paying less.
Graphics card-6800Ultra, only 1, you can always upgrade, no need for 2 now Great OC'er, very stable, worth the money.
HDD-Raptor's in raid Great preformance, good storage.
Memory-G.Skill. 1GB Can';t beat it. Plan and simple. Also OC's the best.
Case-Suggestion
DVD-NEC dvd burner, best
Cooling-A custom built phase change machine by a very good guy. Will keep stuff cool at -60C for 300$.

Total-$1818,00(cooling included)

The ultra-d is better.
see here. Balistix is not neary the best, zen didn't kno what he was talking about. He could acctually do well ith OCZ VX memory as the mobo can support high voltages.

Wow, Jack i have already purchased a Swifttech Cooling Unit. I bought the ATI block and i need to purchase the Adapter for 64. I have a pic i could post of the unit that i purchased. -60c is very fast for me, i have never OCed anything. Im ready and willing to learn. So this is for a Newb and overclocking sounds to be fun and would like to learn but Jeez. Sounds overweling with everything being able to OC Id have to ask plenty of help. If you know what im saying, the swifttech water coolign unit isnt halfway bad. Bought it for around 222, so the price of my computer must be around 1550 now, since i ordered the Swifttech unit. I need a ATI allowable for my GPU block with swifttech. I have no idea which card that is. Im stupid but its all cool im learning. Keep the suggestions comeing ill probualy be ordering hopefualy within the end of the week if not the beggining of next. Thanks a bunch Guys KEEP all the Imput comeing. I appriciate it.

Thanks

Eric
