As for the graphics card, the 7800gtx 512mb would be great, but it will be very expensive once released. I say just go with a 7800gt or gtx; preferably by evga.
Everyone here is very bias towards Nvidia on the high end. Why are you recommending the 512MB 7800GTX when: 1) the extra 256Mb isn't really proven to make a big performance change (ex. 512MB X800XL isn't much better than 256MB X800XL, in some scenarioes it is worse)
2) the X1800XT is better than the 7800GTX in over half of the benchmarks.

You are opening a can of worms here. I hope this doesn't get drawn out and we wait a month or so then decide for ourselves which card is better (x1800xt or 7800 gtx).

About the Asus a8n32 isn't that the first mobo to use the 2 16x pci-e slots that will run like 2 16x instead of 2 16 pci-e slots that both have to run at 8 each.

Does anyone get what I am saying?
