Hold on a minute here. Where can you buy an HD 6850 for $100 ??!?!?!?

Sounds like There's not one specific game the rig is being spec'd to play. With that in mind anyone would hold off on the card.

If you find a card with a one year warranty or less.. just run :)

And TWO 6950's? Then there'd be a CPU bottleneck if the drivers for multi GPU's for whatever game is being played efficiently use said vid cards.

NO! Try to find a good price on the UD4 or a ‏P8Z68-V PRO from Asus.

Same places you find GTX 460's for $100, wherever they are on sale you can usually find one between $100-$120, pretty common actually use shopbot.ca.

Extreme 4 is a very good mobo if you like it and can afford it pick it up.

Guess what AMD had started manufacturing RAMs but their max mem size 2GB with different speeds. AMD Radeon . They cost about 10$.
