Default Upcoming Rig

Hey guys. I will be building a pc in about a month but should not be more than two months from now. More likely around March 2007. So Im planning early but prices may go down

Anyway, I'm planning to build a good gaming rig for less than $1600 including monitor.

Here's what I've come up......

https://secure.newegg.com/NewVersion...asp?ID=3574549

Edit: I have two Mobo's in there, I didnt know which one is better and if the cheaper one has SLI or not but theres not enough PCI and PCIe slots on the other one.

Im not sure if u guys can see that, but I dont know how to put that on public wish list .

But if you can see it, please tell me what I need to change with it and whether its good enough or not.

If you can't see it, please tell me how to put my saved wish list to public wish list

Anyway, I would also like to see ur guy's idea for a good gaming pc for under $1600 including particularly.......

GeForce 7950
E6600 Core 2 Duo
2GB RAM
320-500GB HD
DVD Burner
22" Screen
and maybe an SLI ready Mobo with Firewire and enough PCIe slots
also maybe a PSU with 2 PCIe thingies, plug thingies. I dont know why I need this but it sounds cool haha. Why do I need two of these btw?

LOL thanks guys.

OKay. PCI-e power plugs are used to power your video card. the 7950gt has 1 pci-e power plug. The 8800gtx has two.

I think that by the time you are ready to build the lower end series of directx 10 video cards will be out and definately something you could look into. I dunno if you will be able o fit a quality 22in. widescreen into a budget of 1600 with the parts you are looking at. Maybe??

Can't you just copy/paste the build in your post?

Ya, when the link says secure in it I dont even bother. It's encrypted and needs his newegg sign in info.

Like talldude said. Just copy and paste the parts list into the thread.
