You don't think that could run fear? I think a 8800 GTS 320mb can handle that..

I like Dezixn's suggestions except for swapping the PSU for a cheaper one and upping the GPU to the 640 MB 8800 GTS.

Same PSU, but cheaper:
SilverStone ST50EF-Plus 500W PS w/ active PFC and 80 Plus Efficiency $80.75
What should he get for RAID0 then? Work your magic Good PSU choice

$250 is a significant portion of a $1000 budget.

Over the budget a little bit would allow for a quality cooler and psu. The cooler your cpu, and the purer your power, the better your overclocks. Alternatively, you could go to a 8800 gtx gpu. The former will give you better performance today, the latter will unleash your next processor that much better. Whichever is more important to you is the way to go.

Not with a cheaper PSU.... This is basically the minimum you need for a set up like this.

The Gigabyte DS2 will do RAID on that secondary controller... didn't say it won't Still a good pick.

A P5B-Plus would be nice, but that adds to the budget.

Let's see now:Total: $873.43 + $21.73 shipping = $895.16

PSU: http://deadeyedata.com/index.php?mai...products_id=93 $80.75 + some shipping.

Should come out right around $1000... probably a little less.

- Dirt cheap case.... heck, it's a case..right?
- got two 160GB drives with 16GB cache. Put those two in RAID0, and you have your fast C:. Add your existing as a stand alone drive, and you have 480GB (probably 450GB effective). You forgive me a few GB?

Comes out to $962.82

But, For $8.12 more he could have the Barracudas, they are better *pretty sure they are better* and he gets more GBs
And i think the G.skill PK is more suited for him. Hell i run at 1:1 ratio 400 FSB with my ram at 800 and these PKs do fine, and he isn't going to overclock nearly as high as me.
Good case, forgot about the rosewell el cheapo case.

This is definitely upgradeable and somewhat future proof as it is ready for bearlake. It's a crossfire board, but neither crossfire nor sli is in your budget. Any other ideas on upgradeable motherboards lol? I can't think of any others that are out yet for bearlake..
If you don't want bearlake then i would go with the ASUS P5B-Pluss that Chozart listed...
$142.99
Asus P5K Intel P35 Core 2 Duo 1333MHz FSB Dual Channel DDR2 1066 LGA775 Socket 775/T ATX Motherboard w/ Crossfire 2x PCI Express x16, Audio, GB LAN, SATA 3G/II, eSATA, RAID, USB 2.0. Firewire (Retail)
Hhttp://www.xpcgear.com/asusp5k.html

Total: $975.42, including shipping, except for the Mobo / PSU

You have a little left over to get a cooler or something...
You gotta decide what you want though, so you can figure out what mobo to get.

You guys are awesome, really. Thanks. The only things i would change are the PSU & Case (I like a clean case, and i like modular psu's)

Does brand matter when selecting a PSU? And is 500w enough?

I feel extra dumb, what is Chozart? Bearlake (is this a new type of processor?) this computer is really wetting my appetite and when I get my paychecks for the new summer job, i might be wanting to go over budget. hahaha. At first i was looking at the E6600 But that kinda put me overbudget

Says who?

I want to overclock as high/safe as possible!
