Feel free to flame me though if my math is just horribly incorrect
Ummmm... MonarchComputers.com is a Canadian company....

I agree too, but the Canadian sites didn't seem to have G.Skill.

I deffenitly plan on buying a second 7900GTX next pay after I get this computer for SLI purposes

The keyboard/mouse isn't for me though, I'm useing the keyboard and mouse from my old (current) computer on the new one since it's pretty decent and giveing the old PC to my little sister, so she needs a keyboard /mouse to replace the one im sleazing( she doesn't do any gaming or anything, so I figured it would do)

Be sureto get an SLI certed PS with over 30a on the 12+v rails total, you'll need the power for 2 vid cards and stability

in-deedy, i'm going to have to fork out for a new one with the extra video card down the road,(I planned on that...sort of) fortunately they don't seem to be thaaaat much in contrast to everything else though, so yeah, month or two down the road from when I get this stuff

So I edited all my choices on the first page, they seem pretty good now....I think it's more of a 'where can I get it cheaper" deal now, unless i've still over-looked a piece

G.Skill is a relatively new company, so there prices are low, but their products are top notch.

So what is your current system configuration?

ValueRam isn't BAD for gaming. Highperformance ram doesn't benefit with higher FPS.......it just increases memory bandwith for loading things quicker.

So you DON'T HAVE to throw away the value stuff, I'm using a divider and running my $200 processor at FX55 speeds ($800 processor).
