Grafficks said:Hey cfitzarl maybe you could have gone a bit higher in the mobo recommendation? That's a budget SLI board there. Also I think a 19" widescreen LCD would be better than a 17", especially for gaming. :grinthumb
Also, higher speed RAM would be better. Corsair's new DOMINATOR line of modules should get the job done: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820145168
These things cost a fortune and are for high-end users with cash to burn .
Also, I am just really curious, Keshigami: Good lord, how the heck do you consider $1500-$2000 "not too pricey" ??? (you don't have to answer this one, mate).
The rest of the parts these guys recommend looks like they will be superb in your new gaming rig.
One more question (that is important): do you also need, within your budget, a monitor, speakers, keyboard, mouse, etc? Is your $1500-$2000 budget strictly for the system itself, or do you also need a monitor, keyboard/mouse, speakers, and the sort?
Best of luck with your build.
