Why no 7950GT's instead of the 7900GT's? Or X1900 Crossfire for that matter.

Or honestly, I'd just settle for single card for now... given DX10

Which 700W PSU did you get

And I sure do hope that ABIT is all it is hyped up to be... I'd have gotten a P5W DH Deluxe probably

For that matter, why X6800?! Get E6700 and spend the extra on an X1950XTX and possibly even a CF to go with.

Ok

Still would go for the E6700 over the X6800. You won't notice teh speed difference, esp.when overclocking. I don't think the X6800 will overclock a whole lot more than the E6700

Which PSU?

Yeah was going to use the E6700 but got this Extreme for a great price and the mulit can be changed so figured what the heck something new to explore and play with.

Thats till the next year and the new pentiums come out.

What new Pentiums? hahaaha there will never be a new Pentium

end of the year, Kentsfield will come out. Then later, in 2007, the cheaper Kentsfields. I would not get those for a while with an X6800 in your rig.. LOL

If it' a good deal, by all means, go for it. Volt mod those 7900GT's and I'll see a 3DMark06 or near 12k (if not over)
