8800GTX is cheaper and it beats HD2900XT 1GB most of the time
Newegg.com - MSI NX8800GTX-T2D768E-HD OC GeForce 8800GTX 768MB 384-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail

Motherboard
Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3L LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

CPU
Newegg.com - Intel Core 2 Duo E4500 Allendale 2.2GHz 2M shared L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor - Retail

E4500 performs on par with 5200+ at stock speed but E4500 overclocks way much better

opps, you are planning to crossfire ??

What resolution does your 64inch hdtv support ? There is no reason to crossfire or SLI if you are playing at resolution at 1920X1080 or lower
