And aslo a LCD screen with sRGB and 8 ms respond time
i would recommand to buy a PHILIPS LCD because i think the lifeshell of it is much more longer...i thinkcuz i also brought it and it perform good at all times....
but i'm not sure this kind of performace at ur country will cost how much?I think there is not nid to buy a core2 processor because as i know, onil processor wit HT function will not lag in high performance game...But it all think of..buy or not to buy it all up to u...

G80 is going to be released in November.

Just wait for one month, and then buy a new computer

the more i think about it dx10 card will reall not be utilized for a while so why not get a high end card now for around $350 and then in maybe a year or so when dx10 is actually utilized and then get a g80, it will more than likely be cheaper then too

Ok...here's the big thing, about any build people suggest on here will be very similiar but you need to put 2 things into consideration...
1.) are you a big pc gamer type person and if so
2.) do you want to get the best parts now or are you willing to wait and just get something good that'll hold you over for a few months until the new Directx 10 cards come out which will be better

here's what i'd suggest:

go w/ spartans build expect:

1.) pick out the case yourself. i mean cases matter cuz of quality but mostly cuz of looks and you might not like what somebody else picks out...also $175 is a LOT to pay for a case. about any $50 case is fine.

2.) get an E6600 instead of x6800...very similar processor except the x6800 is just under 20% faster for 3+ times more money and in most people's opinion not worth it...your money though. I'd say save $600 here and get the new Dx10 cards when they come out with that money.

3.) you also might want to look into a 2nd Hard drive (you could get another 250GB one for only $80 more)

4.) a 20.1" LCD screen is more than most people need but you could also look into getting a bigger one. if you do then make sure it's 8ms or lower. (Dells are nice but overpriced by the way)

yeah all of that looks good. never heard of the memory though. if you plan on overclocking you might wanna make sure that ram will overclock really well. it looks like it should do fine. If you decide not to go with that ram Gskill and Muskin are supposed to be really good for overclocking.

but i didn't see the power supply. have you picked one out yet?

yeah that ram looks sweet man.

as for the PSU both are pretty good Hyper makes the best of the best but you'll have to spend a lot for one. Other than that i don't know much about anything other than Antec PSU's and for all that you'll be spending and Antec wouldn't live up to what you could be getting. (highest antec is 650W)
