This is my current hardware
Ultra Black Aluminus ATX Mid-Tower Case w/ 550 watt Power Supply + 2 case fans
Asus P5N-E SLI Motherboard - NVIDIA nForce 650i SLI
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Processor - 2.40GHz
Masscool CPU Cooling Fan
EVGA GeForce 8800 GT Superclocked Video Card (waiting on Accelero S1 w/ Turbo Module)
(2) OCZ Platinum DDR2 800MHz Dual Channel Memory (2 x 1024MB)
Seagate Barracuda 500GB Hard Drive
Sony 20X DVD Rewritable Drive
Question on the motherboard. I'm thinking about upgrading soon to the 750i or 780i. Now I want to know if it is worth upgrading, or am I good with the 650i for a while?
Another question, ASUS vs. EVGA? Which do you guys prefer, and for what reasons?
Also I'd like to hear from you guys on what my next upgrades should be? The 8800 GT is treating me nice so far. I'm looking forward to OCing it and my Q6600.

What are the reasons you want to upgrade the motherboard- not much point in upgrading if you're just going to be running the same hardware on it at the same settings.
I like evga because the service is very good, and their forum is a great way to get to know the ins and outs of their products.
psst, wanna see my binder?

Ditto, EVGA all the way.
