You cant plan on what to get, as hardware is changing every month.

If you actually get $3000 to spend on a computer you can buy a better card than a 6800 and an x-connect psu. Like PZERO said, hardwares always changing. Dont cound on something being top of line next year.

Yup, Just set a budget and work you're butt of and start filling up your piggy bank. Once you reach your budget, come back here and we'll help you configure something with current hardware.

If you want something sweet to look forward to pick a top of the line AMD 64 x2 Chip, add 300 for a mobo, the new gen GPU's will be out by then but budget for a 7800gtx as the prices will prolly be in the same ballpark. As for the power supp....I like the powerstream's myself...pretty much bulletproof.

Oh and the work ethic looks good on ya
Keep up the good work lad
