Need Help With Computer Parts

  1. I'm currently in the process of building my new computer. So Far I've got this:

    Case: Antec Nine Hundred Gaming Case
    Video Card: 8800 GT OC 512 MB


    I picked out these from newegg I need to know if their good or bad if so could someone help me choose different parts.

    Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/product/product.asp?item=N82E16813131142

    Processor: http://www.newegg.com/product/product.asp?item=N82E16819115029

    Memory: http://www.newegg.com/product/product.asp?item=N82E16820145034


    Can the motherboard Support SLI? Because I will be using it in the near future. I also need a good power supply that will run everything plus SLI.


    -Thanks

    the specs say that the mobo supprts sli. I am not much into desktops but your choice looks good to me. don't save money on the psu. you will need a reliable and powerful one.

    I don't know any good brands of power supply and such, and I don't if that motherboard up their is a good one or not, or if it's going to break 3 months later. And I just returned my 8600 and went and got the 8800 for 40 bucks more.

    yes thermaltake makes good psu's. maybe you should even go for 700w or 850w. but thats a question of money

    Looks good! Make sure to not go cheap with the psu, it is very important...
