those are good builds.. i just made a build for someone and thought its pretty good, your budget is a bit higher so you can probably upgrade the mobo to an SLI one and change the gpu to 2 7900gts as you have up there.. or make any mod you want...or you could just leave it as is.. just giving you options..consider it!


Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 Socket T $145

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 Conroe $299

$25 off for mobo/cpu combo...


Memory: G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM Unbuffered DDR2 800 $240

Video Card: SAPPHIRE 100149L Radeon X1900XT 512MB $340

Hard drive: Western Digital 320gb $93

Powersupply: Antec truepower 2.0 550 Watt $80

Optical drive: NEC dvd burner $29

Case: Cooler master case $45

total: $1245.93 +shipping - $40 mail in rebates

Not much choice for AM2 yet.

I'd go with the stock cooler and then upgrade later if you need it.
