dude he wants to stay under a budget of $1200 and by getting the eVGA 8800gts it would push the price way over the budget. Plus I would recommend that you get eVGA 7900gs instead of the 7950gt cause it doesn't make any sense to get a over priced DX 9 card when DX10 is out now so get that video card and as soon as you have some money upgrade to the eVGA 8800gtx ok dude that what most of the people here who don't own a DX10 card as yet are doing at the moment.

Case: NZXT Apollo BLACK
MB: Asus P5B Deluxe WiFi edition
CPU: E6600 Conroe 2.4GHz
GFX: eVGA 7900GS
HD : Seagate 400 GB HD

By the way can anyone recommend a good web cam? Also maybe a suggestion for a USB drive and normal drives would be nice .
