Default Need Help, New Gameing Pc Build

Hiya and thank you for your time. Im building a new Gameing Pc With Crossfire. I havent built a new computer sence my last one two years ago. So im kinda out of the loop on whats high end or not. I know AGP is dead and Socket A i would like to know some expert advice or just info from some people that have a rig just like this or close to it.

I would like to know how good this Gameing Rig will be and if theres eney changes i should make or if there is compatability problems?. Also if i get this video card show and then later get the MSI ATI X1900XTX will they beable to work togeather with Crossfire?. I want it to play games like CS:S, BF2, EVE, FEAR, and eney new games with all settings to high like AA, AF, and Image Quality.

And again thanks for your time its much apprecheated, and sorry if its is hard to read or im posting some where i shouldent.

Last I heard crossfire allows you to run 2 different cards but they will both run at the slower speed.

And thats a good setup and you put everything in a way thats easy to read.

Good thats what i was going for and so far its only gona be around 15k to 16k. Im a fan of AMD so this is hard for me but people are saying the new Intel chip is faster and so im just gona go for it. Also do you think this will be a good pc to upgrade because it seems like every day a new thing comes out.

Hehe thanks, thats what im going for , just want something that is good for games that are out now and that can be upgraded later on. But the upgadeing thing is a least worry. Just trying to figure out what parts are good for a Pc thats only 1500$ not trying to buy a Alienwear computer thats 6000$ when i can make one that will preform the same at a way lower cost

yeah you definitely want SATA2 Harddrive.

Chances are that mobo only has one IDE connector which would be best used for your CD/DVD drive - unless thats SATA too - but most likely not.

I have two of those in RAID 0 - and they are really quiet.
