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

hmm gd apart from the fact u got a NVidia Mobo And ATI GPU...
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.

cheaper = SLI and nvidia cards a whole lot more $ = Crossfire and ATI cards take your choice
Its like Custom Built = Cheap Alienware = Price of Mansion & Holiday Take your choice!
oops, wasn't paying attention there, will get back to you when I pick out a new card, but ya, how does the rest sound?
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
