    All you really need is a good video card. But check Newegg for mobos, there are alot of customer reviews there.

    Those are good cards. Also the X800 Pro or 6800 GT. But I prefer the 6800GT. It costs about the same as the X800 but has 16 rendering pipes and the Radeon only has 12.

    nooooooo go with the 6800 ultra! water cooling is good if you have the money, and as i can see you have the money make sure you measure
