I made some revisions to my original list which I think are much more affordable and will be a system powerful enough for what it will be used for and more (mainly gaming). Again I'm totally open to suggestions and comments.
Case - Thermaltake Armour Black Full-Tower W/ 25cm side fan
CPU - Intel q6600
Hard Drive - Western Digital 500GB (5000 AAKS)
PSU - CM eXtream 650w
The only thing that I'm still unsure of is the motherboard... The memory I'm looking at is the Corsair XMS2 2GB PC6400 DDR2-800MH and for video a GeForce 8800gts 320mb, so basically I need a board that can support the Intel CPU, memory between 800 - 1066mhz and the video card. SLI would be nice too :]
Also not sure which company to get the card from. BFG has lifetime warranty and eVGA has some nice perks as well. I was thinking eVGA, seems like the best IMO.
SLI is something everyone wants to do but never does.
If you DO tho you'll only have a choice of 3 boards that does it as they are all 680i and the best out there and they are: P5N32-E SLI, evga 680i, and Striker Extreme.
I like the P5N32 but others like different.
My System Specs
Gigabyte P67 UD3 B3
i5 2500K (Stock)
8GB G.Skill Ripjaws
EVGA FPB 560ti
