you shouldn't of bought an ultra a 8800gtx would serve you best with games TODAY and then buy a 9800 at crimbo for the games of tommorrow. might want to try and recall the order if you can and change it

overpriced mobo complete not worth the dosh has some nice features but overpriced. again worth recalling the order and changing

psu completely over the top for any rig you could build so far you would only need 550W psu and that would serve you for upgrade space aswell.

SLI is pointless costs more then its worth

good case

ok cool well i'm pretty new to this but i thought maybe i will buy the 8800 ultra and when i actually need to upgrade the prices of a 8800 ultra would have gone down. and the psu it was only a few more dollars extra so i thought why not. And im from Australia so this stuff is actualy pretty cheap compared to the prices on some things here

The prices for the ultra probably wont go down to much, and not anytime soon. Just take a look at the 7900GTX - its still up near $500.
