So far I know what I want as a CPU and a vid-card even though it will be pricey. My beta stage for the overall Components I want is: CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 PC Case: ? I was thinking of a Antec 1200.. Heatsink/Watercooling: ? unknown for now. Memory Kits: ? I wanted to tryout OCZ for either DDR2/ - *mobo supported & depending on price. 4 GB DD3 would be very expensive? Motherboard:? Still having trouble picking one cause of the videocard length of the 4870x2 and some bad placement of the sata slots etc. asus/gbe/abit. I also like the ideal of dual bios. Video Card: 4870x2 - I've had nVidia and ATI/AMD videocards but I like the specs on this one. I can wait for different companies to release there own. I wont be buying all this in one go.
