That is a great deal for the 8800gtx. I just am not sure about the brand. If anyone can shed some light on the brand that would be great, as I can't find a single benchmark which places them in anything higher than 3rd place.
I gotta say, I love the look and the price of that gpu, but if quality isn't there I can't go that route.
BTW, here is my current build based on the feedback I have recieved thus far...
Wish list details
This "turnkey" system comes in at $2,7452.20, approximately $150.00 more than my original build listed at the top of this thread. That price is a piece for piece comparison of what I originally planned against recommendations presented here for true comparison purposes.
I am holding to the formula of not spending more than $1400.00 or so on a gaming pc. The extra $1300.00 comes into play with peripherals, etc., for someone who is starting from scratch with nothing on the desk (hypothetically).
Lemme know what ya'll think.
