I like eVGA over your current video card brand and I also prefer SAGITTA over Ebuyer. I hold the belief raptor HDs are just a waste of money. Everything else looks great.

the X-Fi elite pro is a TOTAL waste of money... all it has are extra music prosduction and recording options. If you are a gamer, just get the x-fi fatal1ty, it has all the features of the elite pro minus the extra recording options. also, get evga not xfx.

also the asus an832 is currently the BEST socket 939 mobo currently being made. dont listen to anyone who says to get dfi.

I don't know about that then, you can ask on the creative forums. I'm pretty sure you can still do it on the fatal1ty, but I don't know for sure.

Also, with the high end system you will want a quality power supply to go with it:

Honestly Nothing is wrong with XFX and now they have the Double Lifetime Warrenty. Its all personally preference, Now if we were talking about the 6800 gt series, then i would defiantly say the Evga, just cause XFX sent out some buggy cards. But thats all behind them from what ive seen in the past 2 XFX cards ive owned.
