Default What could i get?

Ok here is the deal i have 3000$ Canadian, which is 2700$ USD roughly.

I want the stuff that is out now and not a month or anything.

I want:

ATHLON
SLI

The rest is up to you.

I'll keep checking every 1-2 hours.

Heres what I would do. Screw SLI, screw AMD (only for now ) Get a 7950GX2 and a conroe. Then a nice big display and your good to go.
