I am going to say that for the most powerful build you would go with the FX60 because Intel really doesnt have good SLI support. I think the 955EE or 965EE will have more overclocked power, but without SLI it might be pointless for a gamer.

Nvidia fanboy! Everybody knows that with double as many pixel shaders, two x1900xtx will beat two 7900gtx. Rather have two x1900xtx with the xpress 3200.

so that intel board doesnt support sli? what about crossfire? in my last post, that intel mobo, does it support either?
and timmay, i love ATI 10X better BUT BUT do those boards support corssfire? im used to setting up SLI rigs for others but have never done crossfire before.... i was looking at some X1900XTX with over 2.5 GHZ overall (mem + core) pre-OCed for $699 a piece, $1150 for 2

BTW this is for a professional, i have the honor of building it for him so i can maybe afford a system half as good

Im no fanboy... Everyone knows that Crossfire sucks. X1900XTX beats the 7900GTX, but 7900GTX SLI beats X1900XTX Crossfire!

First of all that Intel board is a bad overclocker. You want the P5WD2-E Premum. That is the flagship Intel board out right now. The reason Intel doesnt do SLI very well is that Nvidia will not give Intel chipsets SLI support. SLI only works on SLI chipsets, and Intel processors don't overclock well on Nividia chipsets. Soon (hopefully) Intel and Nvidia will elope and we can have Intel SLI.

the boards that support crossfire are the ones with specific ATI chipsets, just like how Sli is only supported by specific Nvidia chipsets.
The asus A8R32-MVP Deluxe is currently the best crossfire mobo, great for overclocking too. newegg link here.

Going for two x1900xtx, that mobo and a FX60 will get you !!! (approximately) !!! the best pc you can get for your money right now.

Not anymore, not with the new Xpress 3200 chipset. Havent you been following Sun's topic about it? It clearly proves that two X1900XTX do officially beat two 7900GTX. Although crossfire DID suck with the xpress 200, and the master card. But who the hell needs that now that the xpress 3200 owns??

Newegg.com reviews are worthless, don't even read them.

The best possible computer you can do right now is this:

Pentium D 965EE (3.73Ghz)
Quad SLI w/ 7900GX2
2x 150GB Raptor X
2GB G.Skill RAM
X-Fi Sound Card
1KW PC Power and Cooling
