Default Its official!!!

Im finally getting dual core! system is as follows...

Gigabyte 570i SLI AM2 Motherboard
AMD Athlon 4000 x2
2GB Kingston PC5300
160GB WD Harddrive
DVD-Rom (already have dvd burner)
Cheapo Rosewill Case
Rosewill 550Watt SLI PSU 20A/18A dual rails

my dad didnt order a graphics card, but hey, i cant complain, all this for x-mas is gonna be awesome... but selling the laptop will allow me to get an 8800gt AND a 360! cant wait! ill keep everybody updated on the build when i begin...

one question, this mobo only has pci-e 8x in sli, 16x in single, should i do dual 8600gt's, one 8800gt, dual 8800gts's, or 8800gt w/ an 8600gt? im thinkin a single good 8800 but idk.. will pci-e 8x hinder my performance too much? ill give an 8800 and 8600 a try when i get it since i already have an 8600, so i guess ill know then, but any ideas until then?

dude if you get an 8800 that sucker's gonna scream in your rig... ill have to oc my 4000 quite a bit, but supposedly people have gotten it from 2.1ghz to well over 3ghz with stock cooling, ill just have to see...

merry christmas to you too!

rol3- what os are you gonna get? vista or xp? i saw you had a system in sig w/ rud's stuff, any idea yet? ill prolly wait till both of you get 8800's so i know which to get.. lol

d88- i never use it though.. ill have 3 desktops, i got the laptop so i could use it at school but they only allow their IBM laptops... therefor i have no use, you want it?
