I made some more adjustments. Here's what I'm looking at now.
I was told Creative and Vista don't get along well, so I switched to ASUS Xonar, what they suggested. Is that a good move?
Also, if I'm going to do SLI, how does 8800GTSx2 sound?
And it seems the only MoBo that's DDR3 is the 790i. Is this MoBo reliable? Or should I go to DDR2 and change everything?
Finally, I switched to the Antec Nine Hundred case. It was the highest rated and most popular mid tower on Newegg. However, it doesn't list what size MoBo will fit. Does anyone know if putting the 790i in here will be a problem?
And in response to Sora, I don't really have any experience in overclocking. I don't know if I'd do it on this machine. Maybe that means I shouldn't even be spending so much? I don't know. I suppose I'll try it eventually once I'm used to eveything.
This is my first build, so I'm not going to be extrememly picky about taking everything to its absolute limit right away. I'll jsut be pleased to finally have a decent machine based on its its components on basic settings. As I said though, I'll eventually try tweaking everything once I'm ready.
