Asus A8N Nforce4 SLI motherboard
you'll need an SLI board to go with the cards
G.Skill 2x512MB PC4400 DDRRAM
this is the best RAM for overclocking, or even at stock speeds it's still really fast.
AMD Athlon 64 3500+ Winchester
this is the CPU that has tested to go best with the G.Skill RAM, with the Winchester core, and the ability to reduce the multiplier, to increase the HTT (Athlon 64's equivalent to FSB) and get better transfer speeds between RAM and CPU.
Ultra X-Connect 500W PSU
blue, titanium or black. these PSU's are about the most reliable, and best looking you can get. you can take out the cables you don't need, and all of them are sleeved.
LG 16x dual layer DVD burner
LG 52x24x52x16 CDR/RW + DVD
Seagate 300GB SATA
huge drive, reliable, quiet, and fast access time
Dell Sony 21" Trinitron
or a black one
$99 or $149
this is a really good monitor, I actually have the exact same one myself running at 2048x1536 (although my TNT2 doesn't like it much hehe)
case: anything you like. if you get a black case, you might want to get the black monitor
total = $1869.75 or $1919.75 without case
- that includes the dual 6800 GT's
