Hey there :)

After much deliberation and spending a lot of time comparing things on newegg I have decided on a build that I think is pretty nice. I am posting here to get some of your opinions on the parts I have selected. Thanks for the help.

Motherboard

Video Card

Power Supply

Processor

RAM (3 gigs total)

Heatsink

Thanks! :)

Do you intend on running SLI?

I recommend you purchase a 2x2GB kit.

I suggest you look at this heatsink, a lot of people have been having a lot of success with it and best of all it's cheap. In many reviews it beats out the thermalright ultra 120.

Hey, yea I will probobly run SLI in the future.

The only problem with the 2x2GB kit is my copy of vista is 34bit. But if you think it will make a huge differance, I could buy another copy.

Thanks for the link to the heatsink :)

Welcome to geeks to go :)
Your correct in assuming that you will only see roughly ~3GB of RAM, but if you want more then 2GB I strongly suggest you get a 2x2GB kit rather then getting 3 sticks (are you selling one?) of the current memory you have selected. Using 4 memory modules puts a large strain on the north bridge and thus hinders your maximum overclocking potential.
