CPU - Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4GHz OEM (From ClubIT.com)
RAM - 2 x 1GB Crucial Ballistix DDR2-800 x2

Hard Drive - Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD7500AAKS 750GB

(...with this 120mm fan - Antec Tricool 120mm)
Monitor - Samsung 305T 30"
OS - Vista Home Premium 64-bit OEM
Price - $4000+


Crossfire...

Case - Lian-Li PC-A71B or Your choice...
Motherboard - ASUS P5K Deluxe
CPU - Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4GHz OEM (From ClubIT.com)
RAM - 2 x 1GB Crucial Ballistix DDR2-800 x2
Graphics - DIAMOND HD 2900XT 1GB x2
Power Supply - PC Power & Cooling Silencer 750w (CF Edition)
Hard Drive - Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD7500AAKS 750GB
Optical Drive - Sony NEC Optiarc DVD Burner

(...with this 120mm fan - Antec Tricool 120mm)
Monitor - Samsung 305T 30"
OS - Vista Home Premium 64-bit OEM
Price - $3800+



What I suggest...

Case - Cooler Master 690 or Your choice...
Motherboard - ASUS P5K Deluxe
CPU - Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4GHz OEM (From ClubIT.com)
RAM - 2 x 1GB Crucial Ballistix DDR2-800
Graphics - EVGA 8800Ultra
Power Supply - PC Power & Cooling Silencer 610w (From PCPOWER.com)
Hard Drive - Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD7500AAKS 750GB
Optical Drive - Sony NEC Optiarc DVD Burner
Optional Aftermarket HSF - Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme (From svc.com)
(...with this 120mm fan - Antec Tricool 120mm)
Monitor - Samsung 226BW 22"
OS - XP Pro 32-bit OEM
Price - $2500+

(Just add the rest of the parts you wanted.....keyboard, mouse, speakers, etc...)

As Sora mentioned before...You do not need to spend all that money on one computer, because it will just be outdated in a couple of months. I suggest spending $1600-2000. You'll still get an awesome computer for that price. Then just upgrade, as new and better components are released.

It would only be neccesary to SLI or Crossfire, if you plan on playing games on a 30" LCD. Other than that, one single 8800Ultra or GTX will do just fine.

Well he can afford it. But yes, GTX is good enough. Though, I really suggest he go with the build I posted up. Instead of those SLI or Crossfire rigs.

^^ thats a very good list. I agree!

B1gapl, its not something I know much about, but the HD: isn't the raptor series where its at in terms of gaming? no space, I know, but still....

Otherwise, 2GB RAM and XP pro 32bit, is, I would say, the way to go for gaming. Vista = rubbish.

The performance increases from a sata2 drive like b1 suggested and the 10k rpm raptor drives is nil.
