    I'm sad because I couldn't find that RAM when I was buying parts But I don't do Benching so i'm not worried about the loss of speed.
    How did you get a 9800 physx card to work with your AMD graphics cards?

    New system I'm building slowly piece by piece but it's getting there. Hopefully it will be finished by Valentines Day.

    NZXT Phantom Black
    Rosewill BRONZE Series RBR1000-M 1000W 80Plus Bronze Certified, Power Supply
    ASUS Rampage III Extreme
    Intel Core i7-950 Bloomfield
    CoolIT Systems VAN-R120 Vantage A.L.C. CPU Cooler
    ASUS 24X DVD Burner Black SATA Model DRW-24B3LT LightScribe Support - OEM
    2x Crucial Ballistix Smart Tracer 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory with Red/Green LEDs (12GB total)
    Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive
    Galaxy GeForce GTX 465 (Fermi)

    So far I have the case and PSU. The Motherboard and DVD drive are on order and should be here on Monday. Processor and Cooler I will be ordering next week. And the memory the week after that. Graphics card I'm pulling from my current system since it's less than 6mos old. The HDD I will be getting either along with the memory or at least about the same time. The case has pretty good airflow but I might get a few more fans for it too in the future.

    This is gonna be a big upgrade for me since my last PC is a HP Media center with a Core 2 Quad Q6600 and 3gb ram. (to embarrased to show pics of that ) It will also be the first PC I've build for myself since 1998. The last one I built was a Pentium2 and a 486DX266 before that. So hopefully everythinng will go smoothly.

    There's probably an updated guide somewhere.

    That's awesome, thanks. Now my old GTS 250 can actually do something useful. :P

    I just thought of them as annoying, but I have regular glasses which I had to have beneath the 3d-glasses. Was not comfortable. It's unfair to judge it by that, I guess.

    As for gaming, I've tried it at my friends' (I'm always really careful about what I buy; I live in a 3room-apartment, where my brother and his GF lives with me. [of course they don't pay for themselves, and I only get €500~/month ._.] So I want to try things out first) and all it does is making me feel dizzy as soon as the camera moves. Here I'm not alone, however, as most people I've talked with agree.

    I don't get motion sickness so I'm ok . My eyes hurt looking at any screen for too long so it makes no difference to me. Also I think you can turn off the 3D with the Nvidia setup if it gets too much after a while. The 120Hz refresh is appealing also.

    Pictures are too big for MMO-Champ. Click for full size.

    Specs are:
    i5-760 quad-core @ 4.0GHz
    Hyper 212+ CPU cooler
    GIGABYTE GA-P55A-UD3 Motherboard
    Nvidia GTX 460 1gb overclocked to 845/1690/2000 on stock voltages. I can get the core clock to 900mhz and memory clock to 2200 by upping the voltages, but these settings are for my 24/7 gaming right now.
    Nvidia GTS 250 dedicated PhysX card*new
    G.SKILL Ripjaw 4gb(2x2) 1600. All you need for gaming. I plan on buying another set for video editing and other stuff.
    Seagate barracuda 7200RPM 1TB Hard Drive. I plan on buying another one and put them in raid 0 soon. I might get a SSD once they are more optimal and less expensive.
    Cooler Mater Storm Scout case
    Acer 23" H233H 1080p Monitor

    The total was around 1,113.87 USD
    I added to this build. Added a GTS 250 as a dedicated PhysX card. My motherboard isn't SLI compatable, so I used my old GTS 250 and put it in the extra 16x pci-e slot, running at 4x. a 20 fps boost in Mafia 2 with max physx settings for no cost is very nice. Running 60fps on Mafia 2 1920x1080p, and max settings, including physx is very nice indeed.

    Watching 3D often or on a daily basis is VERY dangerous for your eyes. My friend now uses glasses after excessive use of 3D. You've been warned.
