Hahah this is a very common question here on these forums. Just browse around I am sure you will have no problem finding any help.


for sure get A64... 7800GTX...you really only need 1GB of RAM (PC3200) but get 2GB if you'd like.

Total - $2,585.42 that leaves enought money for a monitor and case if needed. If this is to much you can drop one of the 7800GTXs, 1GB of the Ram and get a non SLI motherboard.
