Is that the 512mb version of the 6800gt? Or is it the 256mb? A little confused. Maybe it's just the serial number or whatever. Anyways, it looks good. For the money, I would get the 7800gt, but the 6800gt is still a good card. Yeah.

Ah well.. That's not too bad. Games don't really need that much memory, but hey, go for it.

What is that Corsair XMS2? DDR2 for the Athlon series? Maybe double check that or if you can post that link.

Get the Toledo core for the X2. It's better.

uhhh how about getting a X2 3800+ toledo? then get some G.Skill TCCD's and get a 7800GTX all set, if you want to oc i suggest getting a scythe ninja or a Thermalright SI-120 with a High speed tri-blade delta.

DDR2 doesnt work with amd (well not yet anyway) so change the ram to DDR and that will be a good system
