Once you get the cards, you should spend a little extra on a kick-assed monitor, high-end even.

Gotta make the experience count!

I'm aiming to ship the cards by Monday. I have to arrange either my buddy @ Fed-Ex Air (Ryan) to ship 'em or I'll have to box 'em special via Canada Post. Either way I'm glad we can come together to help out an outstanding individual.

Jerry, consider the E8400 covered for. Misterlarry's $80 and my $100 will handle that.

Now let's find a board.

I have a question. Since I'm going to be putting this build together and I hate push pin style CPU coolers. Will the Xigmatek ACK-I7751 Crossbow Mounting Kit work with the Scythe Katana 2?

OK people, it looks like we only have about $200 or a decent SLI mobo to go. Of course BALISTX will donate his time to the build and receive everlasting kudos (and love) from his sister and her husband (bro in law).

We're getting very close now. We just need a few more good members to step up to, helping us all wrap up this great project.

WHO'S NEXT! Belly up to the bar folks.

Thanks everyone.
