P35:
Budget: Gigabyte P35-DS3R or -DS3L (the former only if you have lots of HDs and/or want a RAID array)

If you have a bit more to spend, the ABIT IP35 and the Asus P5K deluxe are both excellent choices.

The additional features they have do make the extra cost worth it, but only if they are features that you like! Not that the DS3L is a bad choice, its a very good one.



The new ATi board mentioned is the new 3870 X2, which is basically two 3870s bolted together onto one board. Theres a lot of threads about this card going around the forum at the moment. I'm with your GTS decision, but know little about the new ATi.

Lian Li A70 AWESOME CASE Apokcalypse has one if im not mistaken. he modded his to have a side window and did some really awesome watercooling and Wiremanagement.

But beware Lian Li can break the bank.
