Remeber, when judging take not of the following.

I need all of those things. I compete in the CPL and various e-sports leagues, and need the best mousepad and mouse and keyboard and monitor.


All constructive criticism is appreciated.

Just remember, again, keep in mind that this is for a student/hardcore gamer who nees a total desktop and wants to spend no more than $2000.


Thanks for your time.

Yeah, it looks good. Personally I'd go for a 7800GTX instead of the dual 6800GTs. You can pick up a 7800GTX cheaper and will generally slightly outperform the 2 6800GTs.

Also, you don't have the hassle of setting up SLI, not as much stress on the PSU etc.

Looks good, but same thing, go for a 7800GTX rather than the 6800GT or for $500 you can do 7800GT SLI....
http://labs.anandtech.com/search.php?q=7800GT&price=yes

Also, I dont see a harddrive on there....
How about a Raptor:
http://labs.anandtech.com/alllinks.php?pfilter=462

That XMS is crap! Get OCZ

You can save a lot of money by getting different keyboard/mouse that work just as well and don't cost so much....

Might want to consider that Antec PSU might not be SLI certified. I have one and I love it, but it only has 4 power ports... Might want to look into that.

before you get ocz though I would check their compatibility list for your motherboard, I know personally my titanium ram is not as compatible with my a8n-sli deluxe board as I would like it to be and doesnt run quite as fast as it should, still good ram just not maybe the best for that board.

Grab a 7800gtx, and maby a dual core, how about a 4400+. If you are going to oc you may want ram that is rated for a higher spaeed than pc3200. Ocz makes some pretty nice ram, take a look at their platnum series. Once again if you have a lot of time to play with your oc than a DFI SLI-DR expert may be a good choice, especiaaly seeing that it has a lot more voltage/ram settings to squeze that last drop of performance out of your system. This is not to say that the Asus is not a good board, it is a very good one. Some food for thought-D&C

Man, thanks so much for the help!

Truly great advice.

Heres some info:

I can't go with a x2 4400+. It's $200 more.

I've chosen to go with the EVGA 7800 GTX.

I'm not really going to be overclocking, because I believe with that computer I should be able to run anything without having too. Though, in the future, in about 2-3 years, when I have to start overclocking, I will. I think that mobo will do just fine.

Last but not least. Corsair XMS memory. Is it that bad? Please explain thouroghly if I should not get it and why. Then, link me to what you think would be the best memory I get.


I'm still itchy on whether I am going to overclock this computer as soon as I get it.

I'm not scared to, I'm scared of having to add $300 more because my overclocking wants.

So, if you can replace the following things (i.e the parts that are overclockable) within that system setup I have, please do so and I will consider it. e.g, memory, proc, psu, gfx, hd,.....


Thanks a million.

First, good choice to go with the GTX.
Then I think the only other thing that I would worry about is the PSU maybe. Be positive that it will be good enough to run that system. A lot of problems can be avoided by getting a quality power supply.

This is the memory I would get:

And if you order it tonight with that $40 rebate (expires at the end of the night), that's a deal that can't be beat.

Also, just out of curiosity, what is that mouse pad you're getting? What are the benefits of it?
