see my sig, with an mx518 mouse and a 15$ keyboard it came it right at 1500, the GPU was on sale at the time, go with whatever g92 gpu is on sale, same goes for the lcd monitor. a cheap dvd burner as well. oh also included was the 4 pack of 120mm yate loon ds12sh i picked up from petras tech shop. you could probably get a cheaper mobo and CPU cooler since your not clocking then you could buy a better vid card or more HD space.

I spend a little more on long term usage, example is the EVGA for it's lifetime warranty.
Well, that took a while, this thread might be over by now, lol.

Good luck

Yeah, good point. Gotta have something bigger. I have never SLI'ed, so this is my first attempt on posting an SLI PC.

There are other RAM sources for cheaper, so perhaps a compromise for the bigger monitor?

That 750iFTW sure does kick ass, Awesome board and only difference from big brother 780i is no triple SLI?

Get 22" monitor, Get Q6600, Do overclock with a aftermarket heatsink and thermalpaste (overclocking is simple and effective), Q6600 to 3.0ghz is future proof and the only maintainence is cleaning out the dust filters from case fans. Get SLI 8800GTS. HAve fun

What about a case?

Go to a local bestbuy and try to catch a rocketfish case for $50.
