NP. You're absolutely right the 3850 would be the best choice in that price range, don't know where my head was at. Maybe I have a soft spot for the 7900GS since it was my previous card.

I've heard good things about the newer Biostar TForce 560 AM2+ motherboard and it's a slightly cheaper price.

NCIX.com - Buy Biostar TForce 560 A2+ ATX AM2 AM2+ Nforce 560 1PCI-E16 2PCIE-1 3PCI SATA2 RAID GBLAN Motherboard - TFORCE560A2+ In Canada. - $80.35 (currently not in stock)

Here is a review on it from AnandTech. AnandTech: Biostar TF560 A2+: Overclocking NVIDIA's new nForce 560

ok i picked the m2n-e sli because the m2n-e with the nforce 570 dont have enought voltage option

i was looking at the dfi infinity ultra mII which was 79$ on DC ...

arctic cooling cooler is a mush because they want their computer near silent, and i want to squeeze ra few mhz of that little sucka

has for the 7600GT i wasnt sure about it, but i will loook at other option, 7900gs seem to be a good deal but new ati card could be find for near the price of a 7900gs

i need this to fit the 600$ with tax and shipping and i need to keep room for a speaker set has my firend already have a 22in lcd and a new nmouse/keybaord combo

so far i will take a llok at all the option you guys gave me, but my firend dont wanna mess with the MIR,. and he want his computer ASAP, ( i think he wanna play some games during his X-mas break)

i wil buy the best part available when its in stock, and ncix shipping rate to northern quebec is just OVERKILL so thats why im going with DC
