My System Specs

Default

Don't get 2 9800GTX's. If you already have one then alright, but in all seriousness the GTX 260 would be the way to go if you want Nvidia. Howver Crossfire is a much better "scaler" than SLI will be for some time to come. The HD4850 is a very decent card and runs very much on par to the 9800GTX.

Nvidia chipsets are very unstable and are built on ancient chipsets from nForce 2 and 4 era. This limits the expandibility of your setup. For a motherboard I suggest getting a P5Q-E or Pro. You won't go wrong there.
