    nice system, but you can't do SLI with that board, if ou want you could go with 2 x18000gto or a x1900xtx, i would go with ddr2 800 :)

    this patriot memory will clock over ddr2800
    u can sli mod it
    and also, i will chose a nf 590 (i think thats the newest chipset) if i do sli
    but i will pick dfi or asus boards only
    i will go with a x1900xt probably because it is getting cheaper and cheaper
    my current x800gto(570/610) i will sell for 170$
    so that means for a xt i will spend about 80$
    does tpu have a user review section?
    i think i should post one on the xtrememusic if no one has yet

    i, personally would go for the x1900xt if you plan on using crossfire (which, imo you should, down the road) but the x1900xtx if you want to keep single card

    also, if you plan to do single card, don't get a cf mobo. i know it's nice to have that option in the future, but if you decide know you can conceivably save a bunch of money.

    the xtx is not much more than the xt (i think the two cheapest models, the msi one's at newegg are the same price after the rebates, but the xtx isn't in stock i know)

    happy hunting!

    I doubt DirectX 10 cards will take 700+ Watts. It's just a rumor, and most likely not true. Quad-SLI w/ 2 7950GX2's is 680 Watts. 4 GPU's and 1GB of memory, only 680 Watts, I doubt DX10 will be any more.

    I won't go crying to you since it won't take up that much power. CPU's are taking up less power now, always getting a smaller fab. process, 90nm, 65nm, then lower. Video cards won't take up that much, and a good 600 Watt is more than enough for SLI or CrossFire besides Quad-SLI.
