Do you want a DIY computer or one you can buy online for under 1600?

DIY=do it yourself - it means you're building your own comp

Sry man, Decent SLI costs about $1000 dollars...and I have problems w/ it, so i really discourage it.

but don't get discouraged, $1600 can get you a lot.

Yeah, it can get you a lot. Is this the "box" only or monitor, keyboard, etc...too?

too much unneccesary stuff

ultra --> GT
ram --> twinmos
200gb--> 80gb sata seagate
case --> cheaper one, around $70
neopower--> powerstream

then he can upgrade to dfi SLI and maybe get another 6800gt

ya but he really dont need the second gt
and the non sli board can be made into sli modded
also i didnt know what he need the comp for
and all my prices were guesses
he can find lian li cases for 80 bucks
ultra is bette than gt and not to much more money
sli is crap not worth it
80gb sata is small if he has lots of dvd's and music or has lots of stuff on his pc
