Bought locally

Tri Crossfire board only (Is there any bios flash for SLI?)
Or a Recommendation on a different board

Samsung PC8500 2GB Temp Ram

Planning on upgrading to a triple channel kit when the prices drop a bit (good or bad idea?)

Power Supply
Posted in the wanted section seeking a power supply, if i don't find a 600watt-750watt on Overclock.net

i am planning on purchasing a Corsair 750Watt

Will be using my Antec 900 case from my old system

Water Cooling or Air?

Swiftech MCR220-QP Dual 120mm Radiator
Yate Loon D12SM-12
Masterkleer Tubing
Laing D4/MCP650 12V DC Pump

Air
Haven't though about air yet recommendations would be good

Optical Drive
Gonna get rid of my Pioneer IDE Drive and get a LG SATA Drive

Hard Drives
Pretty sure i got enough space on my system
400GB WD Sata2 16mb Cache
160GB Maxtor SATA1

Any recommendations on saving my $$$ and up my performance, would be greatly appreciated.

Do you already own the Gigabyte GA-EX58-DS4? If not, I would look for something else. Since you are looking for SLI, plus this board only has a 16X and 2 - 8X PCI-E 2.0 slots. You would be better off with 2 -16X slots.


Try this EVGA x58 board:

well SLI is not mandatory just because 9800 GX2 SLI doesn't scale very well
