PZEROFGH, you're kinda......biased when it comes to XFX I mean really have you ever had a card from them!? I've heard that they are improving^^

Lol but still I'm not gonna get a XFX eVGA for me^^

ok

i dont need SLI.....and i guess if i really need it i can always upgrade.......so for a non sli motherboard, how is this?

DFI nF4 Ultra-Infinity ATX AMD Motherboard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813136163

PZEROFGH: i like the mobo that you recommended but it has 2 pci 16 slots, and a pci 4 slot....what would i use the extra pci 16 slot and the pci 4 slot for? and i dont need that extra LAN jack....




also is this card a good choice? power supply suggestions or will the one i listed in my first post work? i didnt see any power requirements for the card....

eVGA Geforce 7800GT 256-P2-N515-AX Desktop PC
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130247


thanks!

I really dont see the point of a 7800GT, or even a 6800 card if you dont plan to game much, a 6600GT will do fine for music and photo shopping. But if you do plan to game a little the 7800GTX is the card that will last you the 3-4 years you want.
