Do you HAVE to spend 2100? You can go CRAZY with a 2100 gaming PC...

I'm talking

SLI 8800GTS 512's
Q6700
eVGA 750i board
4GB of Ballistix
Corsair 750TX
X-Fi Elite Gamer sound card
500GB+ 7200.11 driver
22" monitor if not bigger

it's not overkill but it's pretty close lmao

you won't see to much performance increase with sli and a 22"....you need to have like 1920 to see a good boost.

so spend more money on the monitor.

go with the 780i board if you are going to sli, the 750 only runs 8x-8x not 16x-16x

Actually I'm not recommending 750i FTW or 780i anymore

NVIDIA Forums -> 780i and 7 series mobo's video corruption bug

loads of bugs with the boards, I'm changing my vote from dual 8800gts's to 1 8800gt and step up eventually and 1 Asus P5E (which is easily flashed to an Asus Rampage Formula)
