memory: ocz vx 2x512 $250 or gskill pc4400LE 2x512 $280
psu ocz 600w $200 SLI right now would be overkill, besides you cant use it that well right now. Your games wont support them. Buy the PCI-E non SLI, for the PSU I'd recommend you look at E-Power Tagan 480. Memory:- anything from corsair, kingston or gail will do. The suggestion that Jason gave you are also very very good.
Basically if you are getting a LCD, get one with a good contrast and brightness ration-->BVchurch @ Jan 30 2005, 12:53 PM Why don't you post links rather than bossing people around.@Max Axe-->danm
PSU - PC Power and Cooling Turbo Cool 510 SLI = $239 - PC Power and Cooling Silencer 470 ATX = $100
Video - MSI ATI Radeon X800 PRO = $385 - eVga nVidia 6800GT = $434 - MSI nVidia GeForce 6800 = $333
There are tons more of great items out there, but these are some of the best and at the right prices. Notice I don't recommend the FX-55. Sure the performance is fantastic, but it costs more than $600 over the CPU I recommended, which is still no slouch. I recommend you save the money on the CPU and put it elsewhere (such as the PSU, video card and memory). I also don't recommend an SLI setup at this time. I don't think it is truly tested yet and won't be worth the money to buy a second graphics card. Just wait and buy the next generation's best card rather than two right now.
Anyway, that's my recommendations. Happy shopping!
