As for the processor, step down to the q6600, save your money, no use going with the q6700. then use that money in a year or two and step up to whatever is better than.

dude ultras are old school,,,and he's just going to through money at what ever is expensive. He is going to get 2 gt200's when they come out and that psu is still over kill for them but he wont
listen.


EDIT arg....yes noniy they are 800 but perform better, and over clock better....and have better cooling.

go do some research...before you just jump right into a build not knowing what your buying.

yes noniy...

drop down to a 750tx, it is enough for two of the card you will get in a year and do some home work. Im saying this as a fellow techie for you know what you are buying.

The reason I used the 8800 ultras is 3 of them is the most he will draw for power as a GPU setup. So I was showing him about the max he should expect to draw. by comparison a 8800gts sli setup draws about 350watts compared to the 600watts I listed.

^^yes but he says he want to get 2 new cards that come out in Q3 of this year about 6 months after they come out....so he might want to get the 750tx to be safe.
