Don't get XFX brand, they aren't the best, evga or leadtek. You could try to get a better brand motherboard by lowering your cpu choice, you don't need a 3700 on a 660 budget, at least lower it to a 3500+ so you have more money to spend on the motherboard.

I've never heard of that brand of PSU, this one is much better.

ok maybe i'd go with 3500+
Could you please tell me which one of there is better ???
-http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103514 or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103533 ???
If I'd go with 3500 that'd give me about 20-30 more dollars for the MoBO...
Any recommendations for MOBO around $100 ???

Asus A8N-E is pretty good
Evga is better and cheaper (will overclock to the same speed)
The PSU and the Case suck.

Get this or an antec truepower:

You can pick up a good deal here on a discontinued case:

Um My PSU has +12V1@18A, +12V2@15A and the one u gave me has +12V1@14A, +12V2@15A...It's not all about the WATTS
But Just for the brand i'd go with this one- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...103-459&depa=0
Could you please assure that It will be compatible with the ASUS A8N-E (Posted link below)

And about the case - I picked that one b/c I didn't have really any more money left....So That's why...I'm not planning on buying any more expensive case than 30 bux - I'd rather get better performance then some case...

COuld anyone please post which on of thoz two 3500+'s is better ???I know that there is probably only a slight difference but I'd like to know which one I should get...

And about the MOBO_ U guys think this one should do it ??? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131530

I know that ampage is more important. I just wouldn't buy from a company that isn't that big. There aren't really any resources that can tell you how good they really are.

The Asus is fine. The fan has been fixed on all the boards so you don't have to worry about that. I've built two computers with that that same board and it works perfect.

The 3500 Venice core is better.

The case is very important. I would even suggest one that has a 120mm fan. (Like the Saprano) The 6800GS puts of a lot of heat. If you have a case like that, the heat will build up within the case since the fans can not attain enouph airflow. (the fans in the one you selected push very little air)
