They're really all good, people will have their opinions because they're brand loyal, but aslong as they're a reputable company it doesn't really matter. I was an Evga fan for a long time. I'd suggest-

-Palit
-Evga
-BFG
-Foxconn
-MSI

No real order, all depends on price and brand perference I guess.

Would you mind explaining that dude? I guess I don't really understand?

Yeah, all the parts will probably change a little bit, because right now I don't have the money, I just made the wish list to keep a general idea of what I'm shooting for. Chances are I will buy whatever card is the cheapest at the time.

*edit* also I'm on a low budget as I am only in high school but I want a good computer, and I have decided to go for the quad core.

You can spend as little as nothing on a video card and use on-board video all the way up to $1200 for 2x 9800GX2's. Theirs a video card for every budget haha.

XFX is another excellent graphics card brand. They have a double lifetime warranty that covers overclocking.

Another option for the power supply is the Corsair 550vx.

Would you mind explaining that dude? I guess I don't really understand?
no prob, you know the PSU has Rails, the 3.3 and the 5 and the 12v rails, a while ago, AMDGT Player and I figured out that the Corsair 620hx only has the extra 100watts because of the 5v Rails, and thats where HD's/Optical Drives are powered up

Very nice build dude.

And that is an excellent power supply! But keep in mind, when you got SLI with 2x 9600GT's, you're going to want a bit more powerfull PSU. Not to play the numbers game or anything, I'm just not sure how long that PSU would last running SLI.

Yeah, but hopefully I shouldn't have to SLI for a couple of years...
