Ok guys, I was able to raise my budget to 500USD, and there is a new list of what I am buying.

I would like to thank everyone for all the help. Without it, I'm not sure what I would be folding on.
The older version of the 9800GTX+ (65nm) is the same as the 8800GTS 512MB. If you can find some used ones, that would be a way to save.


I see that you found my thread on the PSUs. They should run 3-4GTX+s so they will be good for that setup.

...
The "+" on the GTX is what shows the difference between the 65nm from the 55nm (ie 9800 GTX is 65 nm (same as 8800GTS 512mb) and 9800 GTX+ is 55 nm).
Comparison
The 55nm should theoritically use less power and run a little cooler than the 65nm, while being a little more powerful.

Seeing how you account for half the posts in this thread, I would like to thank you again for all the help.
Glad I could help. It is easy to spend other peoples money .

Also, Chris (Gibsonnova74) will be able to get you all set up and running (and if he is not available, you can always ask here).

Hopefully I will order it tonight. Too bad Newegg doesn't have the AM2 bracket for my TRUE. I might just order one from FrozenCPU.com, they have one for like 8 dollars. It's worth it in my opinion.

Everything is ordered!! Thanks again guys!
