Here's a very good deal with an excellent rebate, you should be looking at getting something like this.

Your Western Digital Raptor will work fine with that motherboard. If you have a revision that does not include an IDE (PATA) controller then you can purchase an adapter pretty cheap.

I'm interested in your SLI plans, though, as you are using two 8500 cards. I would have guessed that a single 8800GTS (320MB) would probably give comparable, if not better performance. Let us know how it goes.

EDIT: Sorry, I didn't make it clear about the Raptor - I meant if the advertising was wrong and the drive is actually PATA, then my advice is right. If it is SATA, then you are absolutely laughing!

Looks pretty good except, as said by Ruthandtroy, about the SLI 8500s.

Ok cool I have all the parts. I guess I just get one 8800 card instead of the 8500 cards. The only part I did not get was the video cards yet and I have about 3 more days and my power supley willl be here.Thanks for the help.
