Are those PCI-e geforce 6800 ultras? Because you say that the card and agp will be overclocked. And the motherboard has AGP and PCI-e? I didn't think that was available yet, and if it is, you won't be able to run SLI with it. But other than that, looks like a bit of an upgrade eh? Nice rig :thumbsup:

Woh... nice rig!!!

23" LCD :eek: :drooling:

Now here is a question, why do you need 4gigs of RAM? I mean I sooner understand 2gig because some new games like HL2 not only saturate my 1gig physical ram, it uses an additional 600mb or so of virtual ram (disk cache). But 4gigs?! What's gonna use all that for awhile :confused:

Sweet rig though :afro:
