    Get 2x7900GT in SLI: ie 28x2 or 2x XFX 7600GT XXX version in SLI: 13x2=26.
    Consider ASUS A8N 32 SLI mobo with 2x 300GB SATA2 in Raid0.
    AS bout proc, get an X2 4400+. But I might say 3700+ will be better for gaming.
    Antec SuperLanboy cab nd an 500w PSU=12k
    Logitech gamin series KB and laser mouse.

    Thanks a lot guys
    i dont trust intel nemore btw :D
    i just need a little more info, then im off to buy it
    How much does the Athlon 3800+ cost? how much more does the X2 4400+?
    How much would the 7900GT cost or in fact, 2 of them :p (suggested by aravind_n20). Would it be better to go for 2 graphic cards or one uber 7900GTX?

    7900GTX performs bout 20% more than a 7900GT, but no way it comes near 2x7900GT in SLI.
    x2 3800+ costs somewhere b/w 8.5~10 according to your location. But only less than 8k in HYD.
    Also get 2x 250 GB sata2 in raid0: 3900x2=7800/-. U can almost smell the rubber.
    The slowest responding unit while gamin is HDD. SO double up its speed with raid0 nd u get lightning speed loading screens nd gameply.

    i still have my full belief in intel .... have used p2 , p3 , celeron and p4 williamate and prescott cortes

    intel has been degraded with williammate core but with new prescottt core is fine
    also core 2 duo is out and conroe is due..
    so, i will still prefer intel

    ok so correct me if im wrong :p:
    AMD 3800+ = 9k
    Asus SLI mobo = ~6k
    2*7900GT = ~30k
    2*250GB SATA= 7.8k
    1 GB * 2 Kingston DDR 400 = ~6k
    Audigy 2 ZS = ~4k
    Logitech Z5300 = ~5k
    Total = 67.8k
    Is this right? or are some of the prices messy?

    the 3800= u can get for 8.5k
    where r u getting ur gfx cards from?
    and i think they shud be 5k more expnesive(combined)
    means total 4.5K shud be more i think

    Yeah.Now a days ATI is much better with the 1800 and 1900.
    But 2 7900GT in SLI beats all as crossfire from ATI is totally crap and dun give much perfomance boost over single card.
    As far as single card is concerned ATI wins but SLI if diferent. Go for SLI..
