End of this month im moving to england anyways. Hmm... So I think its better if I wait on a better mobo to release since ill need more then 1 PCI slot.

Whats this quad core your talking about?
As long as you pick up a good LCD, with low refresh rate, it will be better than a CRT montior.

My ram is fine right?

And do you guys suggest any other little things to add on or am I good?

I think in your situation, waiting a bit is a good idea.

Right now, regarding DX10, the expectation is that those cards will be power hungry like crazy. If you want a pair in SLI, do realize there is NO existing PSU powerful enough to power the pair (and yes, that includes the PC Power & Cooling 1000W unit, the Enermax Galaxy 1000W unit, etc). Current PSUs are simply not designed with this kind of power in mind, and the distribution of current along the several 12V rails is insufficient.

There will be two new chipsets appearing on the market soon. DFI will come with a board with the ATI RD600 chipset, and it looks very promising. Also, Asus is coming with a board that boast the latest revision of the nVidia 590SLI Intel Version chipset, and this one promised to be a lot better than the older version of the 590 (you can actually overclock it according to some posts and reviews I have read).

It would be a bit of a waste of money to spend on the X6800 (with Kentsfield around the corner - that's a Quad Core CPU for the same price as the X6800) and on high-end video (with DX10 near).

Monitor wise... look for a large LCD Widescreen monitor with a high resolution. Modern LCD's are as good as CRT's and they just look better.

Case wise, I actually like the ThermalTake Mozart XT better than the UFO. The UFO does not strike me as a well-built case.

If you can fork over $2000 for the monitor alone, the Apple 30" is the way to go:
http://store.apple.com/1-800-MY-APPL...=AppleDisplays

Otherwise, that 24" Dell is an excellent choice also.

And which RAM did you pick? Corsair makes a lot of different types

For a nothing-held-back rig, I'd recommend this RAM, for only $499:
G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500)

but again, do wait until all the newest developments are on the market (end of the year), and then look at the market again

Corsair Dominator PC-8888 will dispose of that.

CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 675 (PC2 5400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TWIN2X2048-5400c4 - Retail

Is what I was looking at.


I think a nice 24-26" will be good for a moniter. I dont feel like having to look side to side on a 30"

On the other hand, These... quad core CPU's.. what are they? New versions of core 2 duos or something?

They are called Core 2 Quads and have 4 cores. That memory isn't amazing. Go for the XMS2 6400C3 for some serious overclocking. The dell ultrasharp 24" is good, but I agree with Chozart, those Apple one's take the cake.

Mind you, the memory you mentioned above has got me to 400 mhz at 4-4-4-12.
