What's the difference with a registered and ECC and a not registered and non ECC

I doubt you'll be building that. Why blow that much money on a computer that is only a little better than one that would cost half as much.

desiboi, next time just list the name of the hardware. Sounds goods. I would get a better mobo for sure. I suggest Abit and DFI mobos. They built the best high performing mobo's around. All you need is a single 6800 Ultra. Alot of people get the wrong idea about SLI. The graphics themselves stay the same, but lag is grealy reduced. SLI mostly kicks in at high resolution.
Finished With TF.

I so I need to take out one video card and a DFI mobo. SO does every one agree? And what's wrong with Giga-Byte? They aren't good? And yes I will be building that.

DFI are better, it's worth the extra 100$ when your spending 10g

Also, get G. Skill PC4400 ram, ECC ram is slow and for servers
