If you want a 6800GTl get the EVGA one at monarch(320). Theres a reason why the XFX one is so dirt cheap.

Also, the seagate IDE version is 40 dolalrs at compusa. Ends today though. Finally, I heard that the sound on the MSI Neo-4 is awesome. No need for a sound card(unless your an extreme audiophile)

NVM it uses a crappy realtek onboard sound lol.

nonono get the DFI I love it I have it are you overclocking thae ram if not value ram will do I have no clue why everyone hates it but if you are gaming the difference will be about 200 USD and about 5 fps, think about it. also that GFX card will do and if that gets to high you can get the 6600 GT which is well again.
