    Foreget about the 2 7600's and get a single 7900GT. It will outperform the 2 other cards and cost the same. My 7900GT plays everything at full resolution.

    how much does the 7900gt cost? about £250? so, 1x 7900gt is better than 2x 7600gt's? i think ill be getting the 7900gt!! maybe 2? cheers for the advice

    There is no point to getting 4 gigs of RAM. It doesn't yield any performance increase from 2 gigs and It's a challege to get it to work with many motherboards. 2 gigs of RAM is plenty. Other wise your system looks sweet.

    i wish i had that kind of money to throw at a computer....you could cut your system in half and still have enough capability to play most games
