You might want to look into the DFI lanparty motherboard for your gaming computer. Also, we've had a discussion on this topic before somewhere, but don't buy the OverClocked graphics card from BFG. You'll want to go with the 6800GT or Ultra from Leadtek or eVGA OR you can wait until the new set of cards comes out and the prices will drop on the 6800's. If you buy the overclocked one, you are paying about an extra $50-$80 for something that you could VERY EASILY do yourself, AND they only overclock it by a small amount (maybe 20 MHz). I'll tell you this... if you get a regular 6800GT and decide to overclock on your own, the chances are that you'll be able to get at least 50 MHz out of it without ordering a new fan or heatsink. Buying the overclocked one from BFG isn't worth it in my opinion... anyone else have input on this?
This is true^^ I believe.
