I was going to configure a PC through CyberPower, but it didn't give me enough in the way of hardware selection. So, what's left? Build it myself......Here is what I have picked. Any thoughts are welcomed.....

NZXT Lexa ATX Mid Tower
Asus A8N32-SLI Deluxe
AMD X2 4400+
(2x) eVGA 256 Geforce 7800GT 445MHz - I know, the ATI X1900XT is faster, but I don't have the money for crossfire.
Corsair XMS 2GB (2 x 1GB) Twinx2048-3200C2PRO
(2x) Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 SATA 160GB
LITE-ON DVD/CD Burner with Lightscribe
Enermax 600W Noisetaker

Looks good but i wouldnt go with an Asus mobo because of there poor reputation for Nforce4 mobos. Also its not a good time to be forking out for dual gfx card setups right now as DX10 is coming out this summer and you can bet youll be wantin a DX10 card.

So the GFX cards won't be compatible with DX10???? I didn't know that. I feel like throwing my currect Dell out the window, it is so mired in problems. When do you suggest would be a better time to build? Do you know anything about the 7900's coming out? Are they going to be out of a "normal" person's budget??? I've set aside $2K, and the parts I picked out meet that......
