well i wouldn't go intel, but that's your choice

2x 6600GT sucks, go with one 6800GT or wait for the newer gen cards

ultra power supplies suck

normally I wouldn't go intel either but I couldn't find another motherboard with the specs I wanted, this one has four ddr2 slots so i can upgrade the memory when windows can handle it better and I'm gonna upgrade the cpu to the pee4 when i get the money



and yeah I thought about the 6800 but I wanna get used to running SLI for the next gen

and the PSU have you looked at the specs? the use what you need structure is cool I'm big on neatness inside.


but hey if anybody has any suggestions feel free.

No point in getting the PC-4200 ram. The Bus on that P4 is only 800mhz. It kinda defeats the whole purpose of RAM of that speed. If you want to take advantage of that RAM, get an intel cpu that supports 1066mhz bus. So you can run those 2 sticks of DDRII in Dual Channel.

I looked into it, and I can find any affordable CPU's that take advantage of your RAM. Just use the RAM for now and upgrade your CPU later.
