Default I got some questions...

I am going to be building my PC very soon and I need to hear you guys opinions before I buy. I want to know which out of these two components performs better and which one is more Overclockable.

Newegg.com - ASUS P5K DELUXE/WIFI-AP LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

or

Newegg.com - EVGA 122-CK-NF68-A1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail


and

Newegg.com - MSI NX8800Ultra-T2D768E-HD-OC GeForce 8800Ultra 768MB 384-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail

or

XFX GeForce 8800 ULTRA 768MB GDDR3 PV-T80U-SHF4 Video Card Retail at ZipZoomfly

On the graphics card I am leaning towards the xfx b/c of the free game and warranty. Although the MSI has 660 mhz speed while the xfx has 612 but I know You can OC the xfx, but I want your opinions

and finally I am debating between the TR ULTRA 120 EXTREME CPU COOLER and the Tuniq 120.

Will the TR ultra 120 fit in an antec 900? I know the antec is a mid tower, if you want you can recommend another case but I want it to be able to have good wire management.

anyways what are your opinions now that they both include free games..?


For some reason I think the xfx is a better company and has better customer support.

They're both the same price...

I want to know why it's better not just, "p5k...and take the cheaper card".

Antec 900 is a large case.. it'll fit.. heck the Coolermaster Elite330 fits the Tuniq Tower 120 and an 8800gtx at the same time.. so i wouldn't be worried.. but i'd say get a Tuniq Tower 120, better bang for the buck, i'd take the MSI since its already superclocked..... but ur starting to go overkill on things... don't push your budget too much
