I've been trawling through reviews and shops for quite a while now and at long last i think i have got somewhere close to the final build.

Here it is:

M/B MSI 975X Platinum, Power Up, Socket-775 Firewire SATAII ATX GbLAN DDR2 PCI-Ex16

CPU Core 2 Duo E6600

H/S Scythe Ninja Plus Fanless HeatPipe Cooler

RAM 2Gb (2X1Gb) Corsair TwinX XMS2, DDR2 PC5400 (667), 240 Pin, Non-ECC Unbuffered, CAS 4-4-4-12

GPU 7900GT


PSU Enermax Liberty 500w

CASE Themaltake Matrix VX

DIS Viewsonic 22" TFT 2235

+ all the usual drives etc.

My main concerns are:

motherboard - supports crossfire, i assume i can still use a nvidia card, just wont be able to use SLI

memory - does the above seem reasonable, is it worth the extra for 800MHz

graphics card - i have settled on a 7900gt for the time being, however do i go for XFX, e-VGA, Gainward, MSI??????????????

I would also like to try to eliminate any major bottlenecks

I will be using the PC for gaming, video editing and running a number of applications at same the time.

All comments / other options much appreciated
