3850 cards don't seem to be winning many hearts they might be worth while in crossfire if they go cheap enough but they struggle against the 8800 series, also unless you can find a 512+Mb version, 256Mb won't give you any future proofing.

Memory wise I'd say look at g.skills and OCZ, OCZ probably have better service in the US than g.skills tho should you need it...

Thanks Rroff!!! I think I have the plan on the system now. I was thinking OCZ, as I have used them and corsair in my past builds. I was really looking for more input, as it has been a few years since the last build. I owe you a few beers my friend!!! Happy Thanksgiving!!!! :)

Ya that blows! all these delays and the fastest Phenom is slowere than the slowest intel quad... how gay

at least its somewhat compatible with the am2 boards.

but next next build will be intel. my first time ever not using amd. :(

It also looks like the P35 is the way to go, but I was kind of hoping to do SLI, but oh well.[/quote1195841921]

This is what is keeping me from getting Intel right now, no SLI with PCIe2.0 until Skulltrail, which is going to cost waaaaaaaaaay too much...

I can live with a 9.8% benchmark gap versus the empty gap in my wallet that Skulltrail will leave. ;)

there should be an 8950GX2 soonish... which would alleviate some of the need for SLI on P35/X38 boards...
