want SLI though. I just mapped out three build basically for the same price...

939 3800+ with a soundcard and zalman 7000

AM2 3800+ (upgrade to X2 if RHT is true, not none the less, am2 = compatable)

Conroe E6300 (Comp for all conroes which would keep me set for years...)

they all shimmy out to around 1200 to the door. : /

I feel like theres SOOO much performance available if only i could justify spending the extra few bucks ontop of an aleady $$$$$$ build.

A very nice setup but i run an MSI board and it performs very well for gaming so you could look into that mine was only like $70 also if your doing intense gaming i would look into a better mouse and a keyboard.
I've Favored Zboards and Razer mice(copper heads).

You don't need SLI. Price/performance ratio isn't that great. The only good ratio I've seen is from the 7950GX2, but still thats like $600.

etomic I have a nice keyboard. and right now I've gotta wheel mouse so it should be fine.

Anthrax what are you talking about?

Those SLI results are amazing! And besides im going to SLI the G80 (dx10) not the 7900gt. And with the conroe now, SLI will really unleash some power.

7900GTX = $500
7900GTX SLI = $1000

7900GT = $300
7900GT SLI = $600

7950GX2 = $600

The 7950GX2 is just 2 7900GTX's fused together. They are the same price as 2 7900GTs SLI'd with much better performance. In my mind, that is the best price/performance high-end card.

I don't plan on buying SLI WITH the build, rather monnnnnths later, (if my CPU still holds its own, it sure as **** should though. ) but by then the price of a 2nd card should be much lower. IDK, I'm going to do it for the G80 like I said though, so who knows...
