Default 2weeks until order is made.

Well, about 5 months ago I made a post here about making a comp, since then I had some serious money necessities so my build went to the side. Now I have appropriated the funds once again and have it for sure. Ordering in two weeks(squeezing in those paychecks :P)

Anyway, primarily gaming and some 3d rendering for school. Was going to wait for AM2, but I just can't, my current computer is dying anyday now.

Anyway, THE LIST :

Thermaltake Armor -
Full Aluminum http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811133155

PSU -
Looking at two,
1. OCZ PowerStream 520w (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817711002)
2. Hiper type R 580w
(http://www.xoxide.com/hiper-power-supply-chrome.html)

Mobo -
.was going to get a SLI mobo, but decided to get regular b/c I'll end up buying a new one after AM2 is out and popping.
DFI nf4 Ultra-D (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813136152)

CPU -
4400x2 Toledo

RAM -
OCZ 2gb Dual platinum
(http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227210)

optical -
NEC
(http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827152058)

Hard Drive -
Western Digi 16mb 250G
(http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822144701)

Video Card -
Now we come to the Video card. I was thinking about gettign 7900gt and then eventually SLI'ng but now I'm pretty sure I'ma get a single 7900gtx and wait until g80. bout a $200 difference.

So that being said:
eVGA 7900GTX
(http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130279)


W/ shipping and os, its ends up around$1881.49 .
I'm looking at $1900 as my neighborhood.

Comments, suggestions, changes, missing anything?

You better jump on the GTX as soon as you see it for sale. They go SUPER quick. I only got mine because I happened to stumble upon it at ZipZoomfly.
