It's cause I already bought the Corsair 520HX for $78 shipped. I didn't think I would run 680i and SLi with 9600GT's. I guess that's the plan then. I will put most of my money in the computer and keep the monitor/mouse/keyboard I have now and later get newer stuff.


And **** 4.0ghz on a Q6600?! That's awesome, is that air cooled or water cooled? If Air, that would pretty impressive. I will want 3.6-3.8 OC out of my q6600 later on down the road, maybe stay at 2.4 for a while, then 3.0, then 3.4, and lastly 3.8 if I decide I want more. I can always change out the PCU or PSU or what not.

The total will be $1200 for this whole setup. Ouch Ouch Ouch !!

LOL I was just surprised. I will keep it at 3.0-3.2 daily so it's stable. I'm sure the 2.4 will be good enough for me when I first get the computer. I have a P4 2.4 Ghz with 256mb Ram, 40GB HD, 64MB DX7 GPU, and the computer is OK, but it lags a little in loading time or when you open 2-3 programs. So the new stuff would kill. That's why I'm thinking, if I get a DS3L and 8800GT, it will still be a pretty **** good computer and it will last me a long time as I don't HAVE to have the BEST of the BEST in the computer. With this crappy and laggy gpu, I played CS, NFS MW and Both GTA's and didn't really mind expect for the slow loading. With the new stuff and DS3L/8800GT, it will be insane jump for me. That is why I'm not sure if shelling out the extra $170 for the Evga 780i/Dual 9600GT's would be worth it. Can someone tell me the difference between the two?

I guess from what I understand, the 780i OC's safely and more than the DS3L, it has up to 3-way SLi, and overall it's much faster and better? That means it's also more future proof since If I want to upgrade, I can always add another 9600GT while in the DS3L I would be stuck with 1 8800GT and it won't OC or have anything special right?

So Should I go 780i and Dual 9600GT's or should I go DS3L and 1 8800GT?

I thought about it this way, it's either cheapest or all out. I won't have an option of the DS3L and 8800GTS because then it would be only $70 more for much better, so it's either DS3L and 8800GT VS EVGA 780i and Dual 9600GT. Price difference is about $225-250.
