8800GTS 512mb G92 (LINK), 8800GTX 756mb 'Extreme' (Link), or wait for a HD4870?

Also, if I'm only getting a single card then I'll want to change the motherboard. Cause I won't need a Tri-SLI capable board if I'm not gonna use it xP

TRI-SLI in the future = no
SLI in the future = yes, if I can get save enough to get an extra card.

I was thinking about the Asus Striker? But I've read here that its a crap board and not woth it.

Oh...rite, I got confused, you may as well stick with the xfx 780i then. Its a good board.

Cool I'll keep the xfx 780i then, unless someone can suggest a cheaper SLI board.

Just not sure about Ram, Graphics and hard drives now
And case issues, but I'll deal with that later on.

Ram: 1066mhz or 800mhz? I'm gonna want to try and clock my Q6600 to 3.4ghz or 3.6ghz and I'm not sure is 800mhz would restrict how high I can go.
Graphics: ^ choices in post 13
HardDrives: I've got no clue I want one for just normal windows/programs etc etc, and one for storage/everyday stuff

I can vouch for the harddrives...They are very good, even better in raid. The new 7200.11 series are better I believe. Or you could go for western digital AAKS drives (or raid edition - having a look now.
Are there any other sites you use?

Also 4x1gb isn't that good, it stresses the memory controller and makes future upgrades difficult - 2x2gb would be better. Like this - http://c1com.co.nz/shop/step1.php?number=13687 g.Skill DDR2800 or G.Skill DDR2 1066 - http://c1com.co.nz/shop/step1.php?number=13254

I wouldn't really use RAID, I'd be too afraid of one HD dying on me and then losing everything on the other one too
c1com is the only site I want to use xD

I'll grab 2x2gb then Just not sure which speed/brand
