hi there, i changed my rig around after researching a bit and finding out that ati`s 4850 will do me better than the 9800gtx. I will be using this pc on a 32 inch lcd tv. Here is what i have so far:

motherboard - ( i really need suggestions on this, i have no clue which one would suit me best but i guess this is one of the choices)


Q6600 ( u dont need a link for that)

This :
or [...] u=ULT31824


Video card-

Mouse- logitech g5 gaming mouse

Ram- [...] =O261-7054

IF u have any suggestions please go ahead. I really need help on which motherboard to get...honestly im so confused on which one to get. Right now im only getting 1 4850 but i will plan to add one in the future so i need crossfire. Plus, i will prolly overclock in the future so i need something stable and reliable.

btw total comes out to 903 before tax..i was hoping to get it below 900, so if there is anythin that wont affect the performance too much and where i can save come cash please suggest
