make sure that your not buying pci express sound card unless you really need it and the same applies to the network adapter .. the ud3 board has intergrated video and 1 16x pcie slot also supports hybrid cross fire the 6850 really only needs 1 - 4 pin cable to power and at most will only draw 127 watts and the mobo cpu will only draw about 300 - 350 watts so really you could get away with a 500 or 650 power supply the 800 watt power supply is over kill unless you plan to add a second 6850 or 6870 down the road keep in mind that the 6870 takes 2x6 pin power connectors so you will want to make sure that you get a power supply that has 4 of them. may want to consider cutting back on the power supply and going with a 6870 or 6950 if possible. 650 - 750 watt power supply should be more than enough.

First of all.

If you want quality audio go a separate sound card.

Second of all

The Ethernet card is good if you want to take those sort of processes away from the CPU. But on this list they are listing it as a separate device even though it's on-board.

Also the 6850 uses a 6 pin 12v cable not a 4 pin CPU 12v cable.

But in short you probably could build better for less.

1100T not worth the $30 over 1090T
similar to 965 not worth it over 955
