Hm, in my mind still waiting for R6000 to appear, and meanwhile saving some costs, is a good way to remain futureproof. The G80 will fall short of the R600 when it appears, so, I don't know. Just my humble opinion but regardless of this fact the machine will do well. Moreso if you don't plan to overclock.

But I agree with Selectodude...X6800 and no overclock...meh...Then again the Striker will perform here well, because it's a good motherboard, but it doesn't overclock much as of late.

Hmm I Wouldn't get just one, as i have had bad experiences with getting just one. You never know if it will go out, what if you need to install off of multiple cd's/dvd's, etc... i dunno just a thought. You may also want somthing that has dual layer burning support.

Because 2GB is more than enough right now, and only with 64-bit vista will you be able to use 8GB (or other 64-bit OS-es of course)

Plus, so far, OCZ hasn't made a big splash on the Core 2 Duo market... not at the same level yet as G.Skill HZ, Team Xtreem and the other top brands.

Don't forget eVGA lets you return your video cards for upgrades (plus difference) Might be worthwhile to remember that so you can keep upgrading over time

I'm a bit confused, but what the heck is that? It looks like a network card with a Rambo knife attached to it. Am I supposed to hang it up on the wall next to a stuffed dear or something?

if he has unlimited $$$ then u cant go bad with adding more stuff i suppose.

Whether it works or not its very debated, but the nic card is supposed to make pings and any connections better somehow.

He said he has a LIMITED budget of $4k-$5k for the last time.

I'm looking forward to this build. This is insane. lol
