Go to the game result pages, the first is Crysis. And I have no desire for crossfire/sli.
wel my bad on that...i forgot to edit my post.
the 3870 is better in crossfire when comparing to sli gt's.

well if your interested in the evga gts 512 get it here
Newegg.com - EVGA 512-P3-N841-AR GeForce 8800GTS (G92) 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail

krazyq is right, no no on x38, since you can get the hd3870 or 8800gt

get the AF7 instead, how about a better PSU instead of an Ultra...

Newegg.com - OCZ Reaper HPC Edition 4GB(2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

better spec'ed than those XMS2, and cheaper (Corsair don't do good rebates FYi)

also I don't see a 64bit OS listed there, so you can't even use 4gb

EDIT: krazyq do u have any Promo Codes for like hd3850's or something?

hah what do you think of me...deal catcher, jk!

well i havnt seen anything yet...sorry. although i have this:
Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100233L Radeon HD 3450 256MB 64-bit GDDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Retail

It Features ATI Unified Video Decoder (UVD) technology and fanless cooling, meaning this card could represent great potential for a basic HTPC system.(copied from somewhere )

rofl, that card performs worse than their hd2400xt (still better than their hd2400pro though) I'm just asking to see if theres anything within the $150 with a Promo Code that'll go in this system

Thanks for that link to that memory. I guess they just added that.

One thing I've found picking stuff for a custom computer, its very frustrating. Its like new better parts fall out the sky once a week.
