First off, 003 theres no need to be such a smartass with telling me to go to newegg and look for the most expensive things.

Second, Diablo, next time you put down something i said with a response such as "thats the dumbest thing i've heard" its not gonna end in a pretty situation

All i asked was for some opinions on a few products and stuff i should purchase. Not to get flamed and put down like that. 'unlimited money'? If i was a f*cking rich person i wouldn't be asking snot nosed punks like you.

Anyway, all of suggestions, without put downs, would be appreciated

Cheers-

My bad, i was just used to seeing your name under the responses. Thanx by the way

As for the money thing, There of course is a limit but not 'unlimited' like said above. I mean, i would like to meet the person with unlimited money. I just know i have enough money to pretty much go top of the line gaming AMD machine here. Nothing outrageous. Besides all i want is opinions, i don't think it should be that big of a concern if i told you guys not to worry about it.

Yeah, i think that'll be the plan. Thats why i was gonna go with the Corsair Low Latency because i've heard good things about them being OCed.

But now im not sure if i should go with the 1Gb or the 2Gb. I always liked the 'more memory more power' theory but i guess if i'm gonna OC its not gonna work out that way.

ok. here's a sick setup just tell me if it's a bit much

$130.50 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811133105

$215 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817104153

$135 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813136152

$875 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103526

$46.99 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817104153

$289.98 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227215

$174 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130214

$93 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16829102162

$46 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827152035

$67 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827106235

$82x2 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822144152

$499 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824116355

$269.99 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16836121120

$43 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16826153103

$42 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16823175103

Total: $3090.46 + the cost of x900,crossfire board and Iram in future

Get the 6600gt and the ultra-d and hold out for the x900s and a crossfire enabled board, they're looking good.
don't get raptors, just hold out for the new Iram cards.
tried to save you some $ with smaller HDDs, cheaper sound card, cheaper speakers and a regular PSU not an expensive PC&C but there are better if you want

Oh, and this is a decent case but just doesn't have the same amount of fans http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811112511
i would reccomend replacing fans with 2 of these if you got it:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811999122
sorry to keep editing, but get a fan controller too, i can imagine these babys running at the full 96cfm...

go with gage's setup, it's just right

003's build sucks ***

however, i think you should just hold out until the crossfire version of the DFI board and x900xt comes out
