Well I guess you're not on a budget, otherwise I'd say maybe look into AMD processors. Do what you need, looks good from what I can tell.

OK...

Why not AMD is my first question?

I would also like to add that that PSU is going to suck. Get something good, like an Antec.

Also, see if you can't get an eVGA or Leadtek 7800GT. They are considered the best in makers of nVidia cards.

FghtinIrshNvrDi...what do you mean? This only costs like $2,051.

If you get stuff off of newegg.com ... it's amazing prices.


macdude425...I like BFG. I have one of their cards now. It works fine. I enjoy it, plus it's overclocked.


Plus, I don't like AMD. Intel I find, in my opinion, is better.

Well, you never answered: why not AMD? Unless you're looking at heavy multitasking or heavy multimedia (in which case I tell you now: get a Mac), an AMD would be good for ya.

EDIT: Can you explain that, please?

I don't know why not AMD. I just don't like them. :P

I have used Intel the entire 16 years of my life. I am not switching.

Sorry to put you down, AMD fans.
