after 2 weeks of battling my Uber PITA 780i tri sli quest, i recently took a vacation from my nightmare. i took a break and tried to figure out which direction i wanted to go next. i HAD thought to go with a good x38 board with 2 3870x2's but after thinking about it i am lost now. why am i lost? because A LOT of new things are comming out SOON!!! please help me decide on what to get. i am starting out with a few reminents from my old machine... q6600 G0 2x WD raptor 150gig HD's 1 WD 1tb HD silverstone TJ07 enermax galaxy 1kw dxx PSU 30" dell W Lcd samsung DL DVD-RW everything else needs to be figured out soon. i DO NOT want DDR3 at all, due to the HIGH prices. i also want 8gig's of ram so keep that in mind. video cards need to be AWESOME, powerfull and plentiful. im using a 30'' dell lcd so i need A LOT of power. price isn't a big deal but the idea is to get everything as cheap as possible. my thanks will be given to everyone who helps.
