If you want to ake it more individual you could swap out the GTS for a 2900XT- it is a much better card after the recent driver improvments.

It comes down to CrossFire vs. SLI, doesn't it? Is that new card really 1GB of Graphical Memory?

Any ideas for a MoBo which has 2 PCIe X16 slots in order to one day take advantage of SLI? Or did I get it right in the OP when I said new MoBo's would be all the rage in a few years (when I'd upgrade) anyway?

Still looking for a sound card right now, but creative has one here that's not not worth considering.

So far this build would leave 2 PCI expansion slots & 2 USB2.0 slots [OPEN]
