Well here is the deal man. You have a DDR3 MOBO
that is absolutely TOP of the line! U have 4GB of DDR3
RAM to go with this mobo. Then u have 2!
9800GTX video cards in SLI. (The new 280GTX video card is supposed to come out this month, the rumor has it 1 280GTX will be like 2 9800GTX, but no one knows 4 sure et, so just hold on the vid cards for now) Then u have E8500 3.2Ghz Stock (but this is a dual core VERY VERY FAST!!! if u know that u will be dealing with lots of multiple apps or games that can take full advantage of quad cores then my all mean get Q6600). Then we have 300GB RAPTOR HDD at 10,000 rpm speed. This is main HDD for games/OS (its a new hdd, very very quick) then u have 1GB hdd for storage, music...etc videos...etc The u have a great CPU cooler, keep in mind its big! Then a 800W PSU that is modulated and has lights (I think its cool lol, I have the same PSU) then u have ur case & OS.
Im sure we can get the price lower, maybe $2200. But u really need to ask ur self, how much u want to spend on a PC! and what u want to get from it! This pc that I build for u now is CRAZY lol but then again, nothing last for ever...when Nahelm processor comes out next year all today processors will be outdated... But this PC can still last u for a very long time +if u do upgrades once every 6 month or so, it will never go old
I just noticed one flaw with this build, one pci slots will be taken by the vid card. Basically the new vid card will accupy 2 slots, so haveing sli and still have room for 2 pci slots is out of the question. The only way u can have 2 pci slots if u use older vid cards, I think just like the one u currently have. But if u going to do that, then u dont need this crazy PC, because ur vid card will be holding u WAY! back.... 2 pci slots is out of the question with new vidcards in sli, 1 yes, but not 2.
