Definately going for a SLI setup incase I ever want to OC or dual nvidias. With around $600-$800 this is what I have come up with. Looking for any opinions and if you dont think the stuff (mobo, graphics, etc..) will fit the case or the psu isnt big enough I will take any suggestions too. Especially if u can tell me if the motherboard will fit the case. have windows vista 64 on disc and a external dvd drive already. Thankyou for your time :)

first thing none of those links work.

it looks good to me. i have an intel core 2duo E8400 3.0ghz, it runs good, ur will be faster nice and stable.
about the cables, the mobo should come with 1 ide cable, floppy cable, and a few sata cables.

if you want a 9800gt these are the two brand i would get, wither one is good.


i would wait on the aftermarket cooler and see how it runs with stock, you could even attach a fan on the side gpu vent.

they are both the same price right now
