i am building a new system to play games and make it kind of my own media center in my room. i found a combo in tigerdirect.com for $359.
the mobo includes a 7800gt 256mb card so i think its a good deal for me. i will also try to buy another geforce 7800 to put it in sli,
i will be putting an AMD 3800x2 procesor. with either 1 or 2 gigs of corsair xms memory, i am not sure yet.
i will be using a Hauppauge WinTV-PVR 500 MCE White box Tuner Card - Retail as my tuner card from newegg.com
and the hdd, dvd burner and power supply i already ahve. i might buy a sata 3gb/s 250gb hdd from western digital if i still ahve some money left.
this is what i am thinking of up to now. i jsut want to know what people think of the mobo, and how much memory i should put in it right now. i will put it all inside a thermaltake armour case
