All,

I'm going to build a second gaming rig... my first was done in no small part to advice I got on this board... Thanks! I want to spend between $1800-$2500. Can anybody recommend a couple of solid potential builds? I have an 8800GTX card in my first computer, and I want that in my second...

Assuming those are U.S. dollars, might as well go with an Ultra!

QX6800 (or whatever the best one there is out right now)
DFI x38
Nvidia 8800 Ultra (mabye x2?)
PC Power & Cooling 1200watt psu
DDR3 of your choice...
