you mean GT280 and GT 260 i don't think a 9900x2 will be out anytime soon(not this summer likley), only reason if you go 780i is to be able to do SLI if your not going to do SLI then get a P35 or wait for the P45 coming this summer

also to take advantage of that full 8gb you plan on putting in there you will need to upgrade to a 64 bit OS like Vista or XP or linux or sumtin
