That rig should kick some serious butt.

Any plans for WC in the future as well?

Depending on how daring I get with the ocing. I was thinking maybe but I don't know a lot about WC. I heard Swiftech makes a decent WC. If I do go WC I want it to be all internal.

rethink the 8800GTS 320MB unless you like low res./ no-AA (which makes no sense buying a $350 video card)

in reviews the 320MB card is beaten in almost every game (HL2 excepted) in comparison to the 7900GTX and X1900XTX both with 512MB at any decent res. with 4X AA. It makes no sense to me at all when a 640 GTS is only $100 more AR.

Is it drivers? Or not enough video memory? I'm not looking forward to seeing Crysis, Supreme Commander, or Spore on the 320MB GTS' - buy now and you may be disappointed.

Even if you do not go with SLI, the P5N-E SLI is a great mobo. I had mine at 500FSB 1:1 no problem with an E6400. Although active chipset cooling is almost necessary on that board because it gets very hot.

Personally I would go for the 4300 just for the higher multiplier. I would also second not bothering to go the SLI route. It's just not worth it.
