Dude what the heck are you gonna be doing on this comp? Unless you are doing heavy movie editing, graphic design, animation, etc., you REALLY don't need 3.5 GBs of ram, that's just overkill. And why pick the x800XT, the x800XT PE is better, actually, get an SLI board and get dual 6800 Ultras. Then go get yourself a nice water cooling system.

Alright good, cuz I can't tell you how many people waste their money all on ram thinking it's the most imortant or something or spend it all on ram when they don't need that certain amount. So yeah if you really are doing the things you say you are, then good choice.

Oh and I highly suggest you take my video card suggestion into consideration.

It'll be best doing it yourself; you'll learn a lot about Computers Searching for it yourself and most of the poeple on here don't have the time to go searching for High-End PC Equipment.
