to answer you'r questions,

800MHz is out and already have 4cas latencies kits for dual, i'd suggest that as a minimum and if you can get a 1066mhz get that lol [but only 4case latencies dont go for 5!!!]
Buy an X1900XT it will own any 7900GT you put against it.
Yes you should raid it.

Casing, my suggestion from exprience would be the Gigabyte 3D Aurora, I have that case and LOVE it, if not that then the Tt Shark or Kandalf which is overpriced but also is pretty nice.

Uhh, I Don't know what mobo yet, perhaps the P5W DH Deluxe ?.. thats the only one I know so far.

Cooling device, why don't you go to Petras Tech Shop and get yourself a nice water cooling kit? That place is pretty nice and every xtreme systems member has recommended that store . I even spoke to the owner in person lol he's pretty cool....

Uhh, i dont know stuff on LCD's, someone else would have to answer you.

And the Conroe Release has already been started, your cpu is out by now but i have a feeling that in the upcoming weeks its price is going to drop alittle.

Regarding the 1066Mhz memory, I try to search for 4 CAS Latencies...

Regarding the video, I prefer getting Nvdia myself no offense though

Casing, I choose Tt Shark because I love the design ^_^

Ok 20" LCD Monitor left..anybody have ideas?

***EDIT*** When everything is settled and planned up, please give me the pricing of each item to sum up the total expense.. Again budget is $5000.. Thank you very much

Really...... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130034

Stock Copper cooling
1.5v, compared to stock 7900gt having 1.2v and the 7900gtx having 1.4v
512mb vram

It has more than enough potential to be a 7900gtx and even better. I bet it beats a x1900xt once you oc it. Plus its right around same price of x1900xt and I bet it runs cooler.

Not only that, but hes getting a budget card to hold off til G80, why would he get a better card now if he's waiting for even better ones later?

Makes no sense.

Yeah, it is the superior product, but price is going to be the biggest detractor. On the topic of the 7900gt vs. X1900 XT, just get a crappy card like the 6600gt and save your money for use later.

Ten reasons why high-definition movie formats have already failed.
