To add to the Physx card, not being worth it....the 8800GTS you're getting, is already capable of calculating physics on it's own, because it has a built-in technique, used to render physics.

I was going to say that but I wasn't sure if it was just the GTX or both of the 8800 cards. I thought it was both but I didn't wanna sound stupid heh.

Yes your card has a version of that built it already.

Thanks for all the quick responses.

What do you think of this MB (Newegg.com - ASUS P5N32-E SLI Plus LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 650i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail) over the p5e deluxe? Don't plan on using sli right now but would be nice to have the option. Also 650i overclocks well.

It says it supports 6 sata 3gb/s but I only see 3 connectors on the board, what am I missing?

Thanks.

all the 8 series can render physics, well at least the 8600gts and the 8800 series. no insane, you got a nice build there. but if you want to spend a few more bucks go with a gtx

I know they are both good boards. I know what I have is a good build, but it would be either way, I think. I want to know what sora thinks too.

The P5N32-E SLI is a great board. Has alot of features, but also pricier than, the 650i competition. If you have the money, why not. But I would recommend the MSI P6N Platinum.

Read this review:
Seven 650i SLI Motherboards Compared | Tom's Hardware
They compared seven 650i motherboards, including the P5N32-E SLI and the MSI P6N Platinum.
