My dads tv business took off and he made alot of money so he put 1500 into it and i put in an extra 100 i have laying around into it to get that so i could still have some money left over to get the next gen consoles coming out soon and an psp.

Don't get asus board, dfi is better, get the DFI LANPARTY UT nF4 Ultra-D Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra ATX AMD Motherboard-135 which is cheaper. Get the 3700 san diego instead. SATA is the way to go. dont' forget as5 or windows if needed and optical drives.

Ditto to this, except if you want SLI, you may want to get a DFI Lanparty UT nF4 SLI-DR which is the same as the above board, with SLI

It requires an SLI bridge as well, which are getting harder to come by. The SLI mod is slightly advanced as well
