    Hello, I just got an email a bit ago that told me some people responded to the thread. I must of had it so that i got emails when people responded or something....
    Anyway. I was told to not buy a new computer until some processor called the "Conroe" came out. I heard it was Intel's new processor. When does the Intel Conroe come out? I just saw a Core 2 Duo online. Is that any good? Or what.
    Thanks for whoever revived the thread and reminded me about this...

    Cheers,
    Dan

    The Core 2 Duo is out now. I highly suggest you go with one. I think you can squeeze the Core 2 Duo Extreme in your $80,000 budget, lol.:D
    I can come up with a build for you if you like.

    Umm, the graphics cards wouldn't work in SLI. The board doesn't support it. I would change it to two X1900XTX's in Crossfire. But, that would be close to what I would come up with.

    That's about as good as it gets. I would make some changes in the hard drive configuration though.

    I would wait for the SLI Conroe boards to come out, and do quad SLI with 7950s

    You can already buy prebuilt Conroe + Quad SLI setups from people like iBuyPower so theres no good reason why you you shouldn't be able to build one.
