Ok here is the same motherboard and a phenom 2 940 quad core processor (which is better) combo deal for $335! Thats less than your current cost for motherboard and cpu together.
Also you are looking at an sli motherboard which is great, but your buying a crossfireX graphics card.......that is just dumb!
Here is a EVGA GeForce GTX 260 Superclocked Edition - $195
This is a great card, and in the future you can purchase another one and run them in sli!
Other than that it looks like your good to go, if your going to overclock your processor I would HIGHLY suggest getting an after market cooler. If not your should be fine with the stock.
Good luck! :)

Do you think it's too early for Nintendo to be revealing their new system at this year's E3?

Ethan the

Nintendo is supposed to reveal their new video game console at this year's E3. It is called, "Project Cafe" at this moment. Sony and Microsoft have stated that they won't release their new consoles until 2014. With this news, do you think Nintendo is revealing their new system too early or do you think this is the right time to reveal this new console?

Personally, I am not sure. I think the earlier this console is released, the more similar it will be to the Wii, which is a bad thing, OR (and probably not because this is Nintendo) the console will be way over-priced. However, releasing this console sometime later this year or next year will have Nintendo "beating-the-curb" against the competition, which is a good thing. Plus, Nintendo designs their systems to be profitable unlike Microsoft and Sony, whom actually loses money for every console that is purchased - they make it up in game sales. That's a plus too. As well, Nintendo does need an upgrade from the Wii - not really the features but the graphics. While the graphics are great, they are nothing compared to the PS3 and the X-Box 360, so I'm glad they are making an upgrade in that retrospect - they probably need it the most in that way. Personally, if the PS3 and the X-Box 360 will be released in 2014, I think Nintendo should wait until 2013 to release their system.

What do you think?
Tech Generation? More like Tech Era!

I have an Xbox 360 and a Wii and I'm a fan of both. I'm looking forward to this and hope to get it when it comes out.

Considering that the Wii came out in 2006, I think plenty of time has passed. It may well be time for some new consoles. Besides, with Sony and Microsoft now with their own motion controllers, I think Nintendo is the one that has to play catch-up now. When it comes to the Wii, I think people that dislike it do so mostly for three reasons:

1. No HD graphics. People want to get the most out of their gaming experience (and expensive HDTVs).
2. Their online play isn't as good as the other two consoles and they want to test their skills against people far away from them who may at least be on their level.
3. A lot of gamers are looking for more good third-party or mature games like Call of Duty, Starcraft, and Final Fantasy. Games like that tend to be pretty few and far-between on the Wii.

If all of this is going to change with the new console, I think most of them may shut their mouths, if they actually have enough spare cash to buy one, that is. If the 360 and PS3 were as expensive as they were when they first came out with all of the features they had, this new Nintendo console may be up in that price range. Better start saving.
