    Well before you go and order everything, check through newegg again to see if any sales are going on a different brand of a part...

    Oooh I can't wait to see how that 165 will perform. I really regret getting my 146 instead of a 165.

    Nice build, what about getting a 36GB raptor for your OS, and another drive for your storage. Just a thought for fast boot times.

    You might want to consider upgrading you're ram to at least these

    Or maybe even some of this DDR500

    It should. I'm getting some of the DDR500 in within the next 1 or 2 days. I can let you know what I think of it if you wish.

    SLI, cooler is an AC 64 Pro. Also, OC about 400mHz.
     
  20. markkleb Guest

    here is 2 Excellent SLI,

    The reviews are very good for this Epox,
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813123246

    This one is Refurb, but a great deal
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813131540R

    Any of the DFI LanParty mobos are Great too.

    There are a LOT of bad reviews on the Abit mobos. Their newest mobo has a pretty good review (but its $200)

    Besides not being too good the Abit mobo has the Videocard slots too low on the mobo (way hard to ever add other stuff)

    7900gt stock cooler. Eventually 2, but not now.
     
  24. markkleb Guest

    The cool thing about the ASUS is you can use dual slot coolers if you need to.
