Are you saying 2x8800GTXs? Wow, dude you must be loaded. IMO, 2 of those monsters is not necessary. One is enough for now, and you can get the second one later on, down the road. But by that time there are new graphic cards coming out. Anyway, this is an awesome setup you got goin'.

nice choice of case. Im really sick on people putting 2000$ worth of components into a cheap case (yes im talking about cooler master centurion and thermaltake tsunami etc).

I didnt cheap out on the case, no regrets...who said mac's have more style then pc's anyways?

Also good pick on PSU, not enough people recommend those on here but they are top of the line.

I kind of agree that two GTX's is overkill right now, but thats only because i like changing up my pc (video card mainly) every month. If you don't want to bother changing for like a year, get two of em.

I think that 1k watts is overkill, but, it seems like your whole build is overkill... so happy hunting ^^

Bro. Yeah. Nice build. Are you sure you want to spend that much?

Your case is simple and ugly. Look at the Gigabyte FULL towers.

How are you getting a Mid tower for such a MASSIVE system. You got to make this badboy look big bro. Plus, with the 1K PSU, you must be looking to get some extras along the way right? make it fit!

Good luck!

The main reason I grabed that case is because I know it will fit the 8800's. I will check out the other cases though. Any specific one you like? And I do know the PSU is overkill, but screw it. I don't want to buy another one for a long long time. So I figured that one will have plenty of upgradabillity. And as for 2gtx's you are probably right, but I am getting that 30" dell monitor with the rediculous resolution so that is why I was going to go with 2. And I have had great luck recouping much of the cost of most of my cards through ebay when I upgrade. Just got rid of the 7900gt's and got more than I thought I would. I was going to wait till the r600 came out but ****, I can't find anything that sais it is going to smoke the 8800 and bring prices down a lot. Of course I could be completely wrong there. We'll see I guess. And no I am not loaded, but I do okay . I am suprised I got a negative on that case. It looks like an awesome case with all the room I would ever need. Againi though, I will check out the ones you are recommending. Thanks again and keep the comments comming if you think of anything.

And btw, I checked the specs of a gigbyte full tower vs the silverstone I have listed and the silverstone has larger dimensions.....

I must say it is going to be a monster, Good thinking not blowing your money on a 6800 extreme.
