looks like a really badass system personally i dont see why anyone would pay for the X6800 but if you have the money go for it.

also why not go for on of the new Nforce680 chipset boards?

YEAH IF YOU GOT THE MONEY WHICH IT LOOKS LIKE YOU DO GET THE QUAD CORE, AND I AM ALSO THINKING OF GETTING A NEW RIG, MIGHT I SUGGEST A BFG NFORCE680I. I THINK ILL GET THAT ONE FIRST THEN QUAD CORE THEN A BFG psu BUT THAT IS A SICK [snipped] BUILD. i WOULD ALSO SUGGEST A FATAL1TY OR EXTREME GAMER FOR YOU

That ^^ is a monster computer

Why did you choose BFG for 8800GTX ??

You can get eVGA 8800GTX at a cheaper price

or for even a cheaper price you can get PNY 8800GTX or XFX 8800GTX

i always recommend eVga because of their great stepup program and with my experience with them in the past that dont give you a bunch of bs when you have problems they are not afriad to admit they ****ed up on something.

the only 680 chipset boards that ive seen out are the ones form asus and eVga. ive actually never seen a bfg motherboard

Ew PNY? No.


BFG is alright, but I'd rather have an eVGA or an XFX.


eVGA > XFX, both great, just eVGA customer support is really nice.



Nice build.

i think the g80 will work great in any board to be honest.

ive never liked bfg for some reason one of my classmates is a huge bfg fan even though he has had to RMA his 7900gtx twice
