The PSU change possibly. If he wants to add anything later, 520 might give him trouble. As for the 750i yeah that's awesome. Take it over the 780i anyday if he isn't going to tri-SLI.

Thanks for all your help!

I'll grab the
EVGA 123-YW-E175-A1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 750i FTW SLI ATX Intel Motherboard
Newegg.com - EVGA 123-YW-E175-A1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 750i FTW SLI ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

:happy:

I'm actually planning to get 2x 8800GTS 512, instead of 1x 9800GX2. Any foreseen problems?

Edit, thanks vernong1992 for the power supply link! I'll get the PC Power & Cooling 610W

instead of the 520hx, because this is cheaper but better

Anyone knows how to get the Vista 64 Bit edition without the upgrade version?

Or should I just stick with Window XP SP2?

Reason is because I was thinking to get Vista for the DX10, thanks~

Also, I updated my original post with what I ended up buying
