well you could get DOA with any part... it depends how lucky you are!

but the mobo in general.. if you have no intention of using SLI... don't get it.

ok, I don't intend to use SLI. Could anyone recommend a mobo for around 110 that would work with this setup? How about this one? DFI Lanparty OR MSI Or maybe even this one...Gigabyte ... yes I know the gigabyte is Sli ready and I am not going SLI.

This card performs better than a 6800gs and is slightly less money, so get this card instead:

I would rec this hardrive due to its 16mb cache vs the 8mb one. Its slightly more money, but worth it IMO:

If you could afford it, i would rec 2gbs of memory if your gaming the latest games. Value ram is fine if your not overclocking.

kk the card good, 2gb's of value ram is good, and the Hd looks better(dunno how I missed that one...) Now I just gotta figure out which Mobo to use and I'll be ready to order!

msi

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130491

asus

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131569

same price, both good.

and i agree with hte 7600gt.

if you still hve money after vaderpro's recommendations go for dual core 3800+

i have the msi and like it very much... although it doesn't support sata2.. so if you're getting that maybe get the asus (sata2 = sata 3.0)

edit: lol it looks like the asus doesn't support sata2 either.. doh!

kk, I looked at those boards and even though they are cheap, I would like to have firewire( none of them have it except the last one, which was one of my choices already.) So I think i'm gunna go with the MSI K8n Neo PLatinum Mobo. Thanks for all the help. Hopefully all goes well and I can't wait to order!
