Why are the HD 8370's still on your list??

The 8800GT is superior and cheaper.

And are you still dead set on using vista? You're not missing anything... believe me. You could pass on vista, get the oem XP pro disk and use the money you'd save to buy a WD raptor hdd to load your OS onto and your computer would be faster. I speak from personal experience. Raptors are worth their weight in gold.

This is a Crysis forum, and so it's my duty to tell you not to purchase ATI. I'd recommend getting the 8800gts 512mb. You'll save over $100 and you'll get almost equal performance, depending on the game of course. Or you can go with the 3870x2 and hope for new drivers to give it a huge boost but i wouldn't hold my breath.

I don't know, but I think I still want Vista m8.

And if you guys can post a link to the 8800gt on newegg and a nice mobo, then I will re-consider.

Refer to post # 27 of this thread for your video card needs.

The gigabyte board should be plenty adequate.

Also, ditch the barracuda and put your OS on this

And games/music/movies/misc on this

How about two of these?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130319

Or two of these ( which is better? )
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...R&Tpk=NX8800GT



And this?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813188024



Is this better than the X38 and the 3870s?

I would get the EVGA, their customer service rocks!

MSI has never treated me bad, I've had to RMA two of their cards in a row tho.
