Guys,

Since my Neo2 motherboard is dying, its time for a upgrade (earlier than I planed). So please give me your opinion on parts I've selected. My budget is £1000.

DFI LanParty nF4 SLI-DR 939s PCI-e
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatal...aMB_2d011_2dDF

2 x XFX GeForce 6800GT PCI-e
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatal...aXX_2d028_2dOK

And because the motherboard has a 24pin power connector, I need a new PSU. So I was thinking about a.....

OCZ PowerStream 600w PSU

So what do you guys think?

I wouldn't get the 600 OCZ because it has dual 12volt rails and I've heard those to be problematic when overclocking. Maybe a 550 Enermax or the 520 Power Stream. Oh, and by the way, I hate you

Well I'm not rich dude, I can't afford FXs
I've got nothing against 939 and I've been drooling over SLi since.. well actually before its release... the 3200 is just a stepping stone over to the dual core FX
I dunno... I'd need to get at least $1,200 for the system I got

As my gaming rig is dying, I moved my 6800 Ultra to my other rig (XP2600+, MSI KT4V, 1.25Gb PC2700 & a crap Hiper 420w). The rig is not oc'ed at all, everything is running at stock.

So to make sure the Ultra is running fine, I ran 3DMark05 & ATI Tool. They scored 5k / 500fps


So at least I can still play games at play-able fps

my score for 3DMark05 should rise to approx 8k. So in other words... a big difference.

I'd say it would be close to 9-10k

Ugh I guess I'm gonna have to get in on that SLi goodness...
