Hey all, well, my friend plans on putting a lot of money into a new comp, and I am picking out the parts and building it. Now, I know you all are going to say, "get a better processor" but don't bother, I have it planed out, so that when the +3000 gets slow, he can stick a +4800 in it, big improvement. Well, what do you think? GIGABYTE GA-K8NXP-SLI Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI ATX AMD Motherboard ATI All-In-Wonder Radeon X600Pro 100-714131 All-In-Wonder Radeon X600Pro 256MB DDR PCI Express x16 Video Card

AMD Athlon 64 3000+ Venice 1GHz FSB Socket 939 Processor Model ADA3000BPBOX CORSAIR XMS 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Unbuffered Dual Channel Kit System Memory Model TWINX1024-3200C2PT Western Digital Caviar SE WD2500JD 250GB 7200 RPM Serial ATA150 Hard Drive

Yeah, SLI is an nVidia feature. Why waste money on an SLI motherboard when you're not going to use it? I would say either: 1) Get some nVidia SLI cards 2) Swap motherboards - you'll save cash in the long run. Unless of course you plan to upgrade the Radeon. In that case, everything looks fine, sweet rig you're going to have there!

Or if you want a ATI card wait for Crossfire to come out ;)

That too. Either way, pick which company you're going for - ATi or nVidia - It will make life easier in the long run if you choose compatible hardware now.

well, I still have to pass this through my friend, cause I don't know if he wants to pay 14 hundred on this, if not, I am going to bump it down to either a 6600GT or a 6800GT
