    Are you talking about "no budget" (as in "I have no money") or an unlimited budget (as in "I have more money than I could possibly spend")? Either way that slow old Maxtor drive wouldn't be my first choice except as a storage drive which is what I use mine for.
    Antec 900 case (4 120mm and 1 200mm lighted fans + UFO flashing light set + 2 12" and 1 6" Mutant Mods meteor lights) - Aerogate ll thermal controller - Asus M2N-e SLI - AMD 64 X2 AM2 6400+ - Corsair TX650 PSU - MSI 450GTS Cyclone OC - 2 X 2GB Patriot Extreme Performance PC2 6400 RAM - SATA 320 GB Seagate HD, SATA 300GB Maxtor HD and IDE 80 GB Samsung HD - Floppy Drive/Card Reader Combo - LG SuperMulti Lightscribe 18x DVD RW - Plextor PX-716A DVD r/rw - Windows 7 Home Premium 64

    Crude but Effective ... it is a way of life.

    Seeming how he chose a 6800 Ultra, you can conclude that "no budget" means no limit.

    DFI has an NF4 board with SLI capabilities and 8 SATA ports.

    I would go with the FX-55 and 8-74 gig raptors in RAID 0(two different logical drives). Two gigs of enhanced latency PC-4000

    If the single 6800 wasn't enough, you could always add another with SLI.

    Custom WC setup for everything and OC when needed.


    And this PSU... http://www.pcpowercooling.com/produc...hp?show=T85SSI

    There's certainly no reason to get an nForce 3 board and an AGP card. Get a DFI nForce 4 Ultra or SLI (SLI if "no" means "unlimited"). For a processor, either get an Athlon 64 FX-55 or Athlon 64 X2 4800 (which isn't quite available yet, but will be Q3 or Q4 this yeat). RAM should be OCZ VX PC4000 if it's going to be overclocked, OCZ PC3200 Enhanced Latency if not. Two 512MB sticks (one GB) in either case. More than 1GB will hurt a gaming machine's performance, and won't help with much, if anything.

    A 6800 Ultra or two depending on whether or not SLI will be used would make sense. For hard drives, a single 120GB Seagate (longest warranty) drive would be fine, though for a "no budget" machine a whole bunch of Raptors in a RAID 01 (not 0) array would be good. The 16MB cache drives could also be good. Regardless, certanly get a SATA drive. Better performance and features for very little price premium compared to IDE.

    For a PSU, make sure to get a 24-pin 500W+ from a good brand name such as Antec, Enermax, or Thermaltake.

    The NEC dual-layer burner is good, but I would get either a CD-RW/DVD-ROM combo or just DVD-ROM for my second drive.

    What I said still applies then, and the sound card you have is correct. Get the DFI nforce 4 SLI board and two GeForce 6800 Ultras for SLI as I said earlier.

    Definitely go for a DFI nForce 4 SLI for the motherboard.

    I am usually up 3:00 AM on weekends, though my posting times in this thread for yesterday were 6:43 PM and 9:41 PM (Central, GMT -6).

    So why do you ask for advice if you're going to ignore it?
