Nagasama you must be lying about your 7900 GS KO because that card comes because stock the memory is 190mhz then what you have and if you got the core from 500 to 800 then I doubt cooling and artifacting is an issue.

I think Nagasama just mixed up the Core and Memory speeds. Core is supposed to come before Memory. The eVGA 7900GS KO has 500Mhz Core and 690Mhz memory (effective) at stock speeds. Its supposed to be written as 500/690. I think Nagasama actually meant 595/800.

Why do you guys care so much about others' systems though. Its one thing when TheEnd is blatantly lieing and trying to make everyone think that he is t3h l33t h4x0r, but otherwise...

I spent around 1000$ at first. Now i bought a new monitor, keyboard, mouse, Zalman 9700, misc., and some extra fans.

This will probably all end up being another 400$

Don't waste money on the X6800. Get an E6600 and overclock it to like 3.5Ghz; It'll smoke the X6800 to all ****.

And the eVGA 680i motherboard is not compatible with 90% of aftermarket heatsinks out there (you'll need an aftermarket one). There is a metal plate on the back of the CPU socket that you will have to drill through if you want to mount anything. Good luck not ruining your CPU socket in the process.

You don't need DDR2-1000, the X6800 has too high of a multiplier (11x) to even come close to maxing that out. A E6600 wouldn't even be able to max out DDR2-800.

The PSU is way overkill. A 550W PSU would only be running at 50% output trying to feed your system. 700W is just a waste of money.

Everything else I can't really argue with; quality parts.
