    not a fan of pny memory or maxtor harddrives. other than that sounds like you have too much money to spend.

    And Broadway makes cheap cases. How the hell you gonna buy an x2 processor a 7800gtx and put it in a peice of shit? Look into a company like Antec for a decent midrange priced case.

    yeah
    I agree, stay with that board. I have one with a single 7800gtx and I love it. There is NO need for 2 7800's right now unless you are a benchmark whore. Everything looks good to me, I have an Audigy sound card and I dont use it. Honestly I like the onboard sound better :o
