Yeah, with the new release of the G80 cards, I have kinda updated my Holiday build. Also, with a budget of $2000, this is rough. So I mine as well post my wish list too. Any comments are appreciated. Any also, any tips to get it under $2k without going over, those will also be appreciated.

EDIT: I already had to scalp the Zalman cooler, and the keyboard so far.

EDIT: Crap, I just realized I kinda hijacked Benny's thread. Sorry 'bout this.

This wasn't my "thread" persay, no worries. I actually don't plan on buying a new pc anytime soon. I figured $2000 was a common budget so i put together a dreeeaaam build. You're link doesn't work either. You need to e-mail your cart to yourself so any arbitrary person can view it.

We seriously need to make a constantly updating sticky on builds of varying budgets. That would cut down half of the new threads in this forum.

If people would actually look at the stickies.
