rofl the poker I dont need to lower my settings hell I dont even think it possible I just brang up poker because I am thinking of doing a dual monitor setup as a possibilty....


I was thinking about the Dell 24" LCD screen unless you know of a better quailty with about the same price or less expensive.

With in the next few hrs I should have a build up for you guys to review for me and see if it will work out.

CNPS9500 for the cpu so you can try out the overclocking



why the 4200+??
Complete waste of money buying 2 7800gtx 512mb's. One will do you just fine. Otherwise this looks good and the rest he can spend on 2 monitors. (if theres any money left)

Heres what I would do with that list above:

-Go with the toledo for the extra cache.

-$750 is too much for a video card. Esp when the other one there is $300 less. Get the evga 7800gtx 256mb and then add another to your expensive SLI board later. But its up to you. If you want the best card on the market get the BFG...

That mboard only supports up to ddr400 (pc3200), so i believe it wont have any benefit having the 4000 ram. It wont hurt anything though.

NICE power supply.
