+ Venemous-X Black Edition from FrozenCPU.com (or any other plce you can find it cheaper)

= around $1,120 Total. And you can always drop 4gb of memory off and save another $90.

that comes with the ability of a future Crossfire of 5850s running 2 of them in x16 mode or 3 of them in x16 x8 x8 mode. Also has USB3 and SATA3 support, along with an extra 500gb of storage with 1.5TB disk.

and a quad core that should be able to get to 4.0GHz easy as heck with puch and pull venemous-x the top dog of today for cpu cooling, and GREAT fans for heat movements.

your gpu comes with dual fans too for extra cooling.

I vote an i7 870 and a P55 board. The 860 and 870 are only about $10 apart on Newegg right now.

*shrug* Meh. You could always get an i5 750 or i5 760 and save some cash. I think someone proved HT makes practically no difference in gaming. So there is that. OTOH if games ever get written that take advantage of it, who knows? But that's not likely to be anytime soon.
