You said, "$2000" was your budget. So i configured a PC for that budget.

I posted what you should get in my original Config. Now your asking again what you should get?

x-fi xtrememusic, DFI because it's the best for overclocking, The 2gig i listed is dual channel and you can afford a 7800GTX. You said, "$2000"

if you can afford a 6800ultra then you can afford a 7800GT cause a 6800ultra is like 500 dollars still lol.

sry 465 doolars, you can buy a 7800GT with that money

i think im gonna get 1.5 mb RAM, SLI 6800 ultra, and x-fi platinum, and the dfi mother board. with those changes, i should be able to pwn bf2's sound and graphics maxed out?

also.. if i buy parts and let them sit around IN THE BOXED THAT THEY WERE SHIPPED IN, will they be damaged/harmed/degraded in any way?

do not get SLI 6800ultra, the ultra is just a waste of money, get 2 7800GT for the same price. or 1 7800GTX if you like.

and no they wont be damage in the box...

Dude...

1.) Buy from newegg.com
2.) Stick with the setup the Havok designed.

And you said it had to be $2000 or lower, why'd you change it to $1350?
