    Should be fine. Just make sure you get a good brand power supply (> 600W) for it and a good case that you'd be comfortable to work in.

        You might want to wait on the new graphic cards coming from ATI see what they are like. That is what I;m doing.

            The GTX 260 is a good card. I have it with an inferior processor and it can play most games at full settings on 1280*1024 rez.

              what about the gtx 275
              its about $50 more so is it worth the money to buy the gtx 275 over the 260

                Well what you could do is get a mid range motherboard instead of the UD6 (which is just overkill) and there you go save $50 for a GPU. I suggest looking at a UD4P or the Asus P7P55 PRO, can save even more if you don't need SLI. Cut back some on the motherboard and then take that money and put it in a GPU, you will get way more bang for your buck in a better GPU.

                As to the HD5800 cards those should be out in this coming week, September 23rd/24th. Its not going to be cheap but its great performance.

                      Recommend EVGA for video cards. Register it and you get a lifetime warranty I'm pretty sure. Haven't had any problems with the 8800GTS I had that my brother has now or my current GTX 260 which I've had about a year.

                          Did you pull the trigger, Stevie? Are you happy with your build?

                          Hopefully you realized P55 boards don't use 6GB RAM kits - those are for the triple-channel X58 boards.
