haha my current system is old but i can still play on it.

I love to always use 1600x1200 resolution for desktop and games. So for my new build 1920x1200 is most comparible to that, which = 24" screen.

My possible build would be:

QX9450 Penryn
780i Mobo/X38 mobo/was even looking at the Skulltrail mobo
Crucial Ballistix Tracer 4GB (4x1GB) DDR2 PC2-8500C5/maybe 2gb DDR3
8800GTS rev2, ATi 3870 X2 or 9 Series GTX
Coolermaster Real Power 1000w Modular Power Supply

Thou i like to keep my options open till the end this is roughly what im aiming for.

tbh mate thats just a psu for now i chose.. still aint decided.. infact the PSU decision comes last after i chose all the other components. So still could be skulltrail mobo still could get Quadfire. Also planning to have quite a few harddrives aswell. its gonna be a monster i need to feed that monster

but yeh that PC Power & Cooling Silencer 750W looks capable. If my power requirements meet it i might chose that one

The Soyo beats the Spectre by a margin of at least 200%. I returned the Spectre for the Soyo. And wow I'm impressed with the Soyo.
