Hi there,

Everything looks pretty good. I would make a couple of changes, though:

How much overclocking are you going to want to do?

Cheers

Hi there again,

The memory on the graphics card is completely separate to the system RAM that installs in the motherboard slots. All you need to worry about is the compatibility of the graphics card, and the motherboard. :)

I have to admit, though, after reading through your list of parts again, that it's rather unbalanced. Your intention of SLI with 2x 9800GTX graphics cards is good, but then to be pairing it with that processor is going to limit your performance potential.

Is this build sticking to a specific budget? If so, what is it, and we'll help you build a well-rounded system that will give you the best performance for your money.

Cheers

Hi Dom

As you were mentioning, the 9800 GTX is a good choice.

You should buy it at tigerdirect for the same price and they give you a free Company Of Heroes game. Can't beat it, eh?

Everything else looks pretty good though

Hi there,

Sorry it took so long to get back to you. Here is a list I have re-worked a few times to get it looking just nice. :)

It includes Vista 64-bit, I'm unsure if that's what you wanted, but it's definitely the way I would go!

If you need to incorporate a monitor, keyboard, and mouse into the price, then we'll need to rework the parts even further... :) (Don't tell me that's the case! :))

Without further ado:

Antec Twelve Hundred Black ATX Full Tower Computer Case
$214.95

ASUS P5N72-T Premium LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 780i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard
$249.99

EVGA 512-P3-N872-AR GeForce 9800 GTX Superclocked 512MB Video Card
2x in SLI = $409.98

SILVERSTONE OP850 850W ATX 12V 2.2 & EPS12V Power Supply
$189.99

Intel Core 2 Quad Q9450 Yorkfield 2.66GHz LGA 775 95W Quad-Core Processor Model BX80569Q9450
$329.99

CORSAIR DOMINATOR 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TWIN2X4096-8500C5DF
$136.00

SAMSUNG Spinpoint F1 HD753LJ 750GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive
$119.99

SAMSUNG Black SATA 22X DVD Burner
$27.99

Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer 7.1 Channels PCI Interface Sound Card
$90.99

XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler
$36.99

Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium x64
$109.99

Total (from Newegg): $1916.85

You'll need to add shipping, but there are a few rebates as well. Let me know what you think of this build.

Cheers

Troy
