I was under the impression the 8800 gts was better than the 8800 gt. What gives?

I hate to ask stupid questions, but you gotta learn somehow

Secondly if you want to go SLI, I recommend the Biostar p45 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813138123

That motherboard is the pimpness, 100$ cheaper, OC's better, and has SLI, pwned.

That case is kinda gay. I got the Black Tuniq 3, I love it man, best case on the market for 60$, its all metal, no el cheapo plastic.


Everything else looks pretty good.

But I would get a Tuniq Tower for the HS, not the Zalman.
How well does that case cool?

Wish list has been updated. I'm glad I posted this thread.

I have saved quite a bit of money, and got the right parts for the rig.

Keep talking!

I would go with a 4870 over the GT 260.

CPU/MB/RAM all good choices

Keyboard and Mouse, you can get something better and cheaper if you looked. At least go with a USB mouse and keyboard. You can probably find a better monitor on sale at stores in your area.

That's alot of money for a 500w PSU. NE has the OCZ StealthXtreme 500w for $30 after a $30 MIR. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817341012. Use this promo code to get the $10 discount. EMCAGCGBD

Maybe some more research on the mobo but I don't know alot about Intel motherboards so there ya go.

I suggested the same and I'm an nVidia fanboy as well so don't feel too badly

Also, I would personally suggest that you take a look at all your parts warranties. I like at least 2 years of warranty on all my products.

I second going with a 4870 over a GTX 260. You save $100 and you get roughly the same performance (sometimes better, sometimes worst than a GTX 260). However, mature ATI drivers often boost the performance of their cards by quite a bit.

Another suggestion I have is go with a larger power supply.

Both of these are good. Out of these two, I would recommend the PC Power & Cooling Silencer, which is highly recommended around here.

For cooling, I'd say an OCZ Vendetta 2 would outperform a Tuniq and possibly beat the TRUE for cheaper.

Otherwise, your build looks great.

Yeah the Tuniq 3 Cools pretty well, haha, but I have 2 Ultra Kaze in it and 2 regular 120mm fans that came with it.
