Finally got around to purchasing a new Computer..I'll call it a nice college graduation present ;) Now if I can convince MikeC that he does not need my processor :P

Got the EVGA GTX 295, but I have also considering going with a GTX 260 Core 216 SLI setup as well.

Specs as follows:

GigaByte GA-EX58-UD3R Motherboard (http://nvnews.pricegrabber.com/search_getprod.php/masterid=712495429/search=x58/st=product/sv=title)
*Decided that I did not want to flash the BIOS and wanted the Tri/QuadSLI Option:D, so I ordered the GigaByte GA-EX58-UD4P Motherboard (http://nvnews.pricegrabber.com/search_getprod.php/masterid=712495428/search=x58/st=product/sv=title), should be here tomorrow.
Intel Core i7 950 Quad Core Processor 3.06GHz (http://nvnews.pricegrabber.com/search_getoffers.php?keyword=Intel%20BX80601950&search=Intel%20BX80601950)
Corsair Dominator 6GB PC3-12800 DDR3 1600MHz (http://nvnews.pricegrabber.com/search_getprod.php/masterid=97549195/search=TR3X6G1600C8D/st=query)
Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB HD (http://nvnews.pricegrabber.com/search_getprod.php/masterid=77164167/search=western%20digital%20caviar/st=product/sv=title)
LG DVD/CD Burner with LightScribe (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827136153&Tpk=GH22LS30)
HannsG HG281DPB Black 28" LCD Monitor (http://nvnews.pricegrabber.com/search_getprod.php/masterid=48689862/st=product/sv=title)
EVGA GeForce GTX 295

A couple of things. The monitor for $329 cannot be beaten, my initial observations are this monitor is the best bang for the buck! I mean seriously, anyone in the market for a larger monitor, you will be very satisfied with this as the colors are tremendously vibrant. I'm still in awe...oh yea and I picked up Age of Empires III: The War Chiefs for some old fashioned fun ;)

Thanks for the well wishes everyone!

And actually I'm using an older custom Falcon Northwest NVIDIA color changing paint case, I have to look again but I believe it's the Mach V.

MikeC never told us Fatal1ty was his son. I feel lied to.
