Two things:
The card you listed in AGP, your mobo is PCI-e. Get a PCI-e version of the 6800GT.
The LCD you have is 16ms response time. That is not TOO bad, but 12ms or below will be much better for gaming.

nice setup. however, u dont need that expensive RAM unless u want to overclock. if not, just get Corsair Value Select, and ull be golden. Also, if u do get the value RAM, go for geforce 6800 GT.

from what i hear 6600GT will do you fine for a while. Its one of the best budget cards out there. No use going over budget just so that u can get a few more polygons in ur games. Don't get me wrong 6800gt is probably the best card around but i just think even with your games at max settings you would be lacking with your 6600gt.

by the way the system in my sig is just under $1000 with 17"monitor and everything, just to give you another option.

on the two CPUs, 3200+ venice and winchester, the only difference i can see is the FSB

venice has 1 GHz
winchester has "integrated into chip"

wuts the difference and advantages/disadvantages???

that's not the difference

venice has lower voltage (i think), has SSE3 instructions, and some other stuff that makes it better than the winchester

1.) you chose the TT 480W 20pin psu, that won't work; get an OCZ modstream 450W
2.) bump that DFI lanparty from SLI down to normal
3.) if you bump those ram down to twinmos ram (very good ram at only $94.35 for a gig on newegg), then you might have enough money to bump up your gfx card from the 6600gt to the 6800gt

"Just make sure that you realize that this board doesn't have a serial or parallel port. " ~from a review

is this a problem if i want a printer or something?

also, si the modstream psu a 24 pin?


is the 6800GT worth the extra $180?
wuts so much better about it?

does my harddrive which is SATA 150 fit into my mobo which is SATA2 300?
