yep thats right, I figured i'd have a nice overhaul not decided 100% which mobo yet but here are the specs;

Mainboard: DFI LanParty UT NF4 SLI-D £129.19
or
MSI K8N SLi Platinum nForce4 £140.94

CPU: A64 3000+ Winchester OEM £109.86
Cooling: ThermalRight XP-90 £28.14
Graphics: PowerColor ATI Radeon X800 XL VIVO £234.94
Memory: 1GB (2x512) Patriot PC3200 5-2-2-2 (Brainpower PCB, Samsung TCCD) £174.33
HDD: WD SE 200GB 7.2k SATA 8MB cach OEM £77.49

In case your wondering, yes, the HDD is extra storage. Oh, there is also a chance I may get an FX55. XP-90 i'm using due to weight and size issues. Its not too bad, it'll cost £754 with the DFI board.

wow, that's one heck of a setup. personally, i'd wait for the SLI tech. to have better technology in it, but that's me. looks like an awesome setup thoguh. i'd definitely go for an FX-55, that'd make the true SLI capablities come out.

both of thoughs mobos are SLI ready
im going ATI anyway because i dont like the amount of heat the nvidia cards piss out along with how fricken huge they are compared to ATI cards.

nice job, id get the dfi board.
but hes not gunna run 2 cards, so he doesnt need nvidia...
but the 6800gt isnt that big, its only a 1 slot card....

im using the nvidia chipset because its by far the best and its somewhat futureproof with SLI, and in terms of card size i meant how long nvidia cards are compared to ATIs.

I take everything into account when i upgrade, i dont get something thats just good for the "here and now"


actually that reminds me when the hell are the dfi boards due out thoughs suckers have been on pre-order for months, ugh, right now dfi suck balls, GIVE US RELEASE DATES! YA'LL WITH ME?!

ohh, ok...yeah the pci-e version of the GT is huge...

and i agree with u, thats why i went 775 instead of a nother 478 system.
next up is a A64 sli rig for me...

but is the X800XL faster then a 6800?

yeah, dfi would be great if we had releases...

yes, a x800xl is a x800xt just underclocked, default speeds of the xl are 400\\980, itll easily OC to 475\\1000, it also has a full 16 pipelines over the pros 12.
