    Thats a killer system dude, simple power!!!!! Dude, go the XFX8800GTX will make your day trust me. If your gonna go vista, go the premium. Buy the OEM on ebay, its the way to go, cheap as chips

    Nice system!!! :D........Go with another 8800GTX!! ;)

    Do not go with Vista. I rec. sticking to XP Pro. I have never tried Vista out, so my opinion really does not help alot, but I have read so many problems running with Vista. I really like my XP Pro, so I rec. you stick with that. :)

    I'd say 4GBs of RAM would serve you better in the future rather than another video card. Especially if you decide to sell the 8800GTX when 8900s or 9800s are out. You'll need a 64bit OS for 4GBs of RAM.

    And this is off topic but can't you overclock past 3.3GHz on that 680i?

    Hi man, congrats on your new system. I suggest that you stay with xp because vista is still imature and very buggy. your 8800gtx will be more than enough untill you get to 2560x1680 resolutons.
