Oh and if you have extra money you should get an XFi soundcard.

Why would he get a DFI and a soundcard? The DFI is kind of expensive for running things at stock speeds (i doubt he's going to be overclocking) and the soundcard, IMO is useless unless you have a really nice pair of speakers.

Are you overclocking or not?

If not, then I don't see how you can spend less than 2000 dollars.

Well you should get a nice pair of speakers and soundcard, that really makes a gaming rig nice IMO. If i didnt have 5.1 speakers, that would suck.

5.1 is the best for gaming. It makes you feel like your there, you can hear in what direction people are comming. If you are getting a decent pait of speakers you could go ahead and get a soundcard, it's just I think onboard sound does me fine right now.

Even though my speakers/soundcard arent great (SB live 7.1 and Creative p580's), it still sounds amamzing.
