Future proof? You can be future proof for the next 3 months or so, in this computing world... but I assume you want to keep your rig 4,5 years again. So: DDR3, X2 GPU, Quad.
Board: Asus P5E3 Premium X48
CPU: Intel Q9550
Ram: Corsair XMS3 DDR3 2x 2Gb, PC3-1333
HSF: OCZ Vendetta II
PSU: Corsair VX750W
GPU: Ati 4870X2, any vendor.
HDD1: Western Digital 640Mb for software
HDD2: Seagate 7200.11 1Tb for storage
Case: Coolermaster Cosmos S
OS: Vista Home Premium
That should be it.
How much would that end up costing me (minus the OS)?
Would that board support Crossfire of the 4870x2 in the future?
And what's an HSF?
Thanks for the help btw.
