(Original Post Below)
OK Peeps,

It time I stopped feeding at the bottom of the 3DMark Benchmark pool.

Got me a new graphics card, 8800 GTS compliments arcman.

Now I want to put together a rig to run this monster on.

Original plan was to just stick the card in my old PC that ran the 7900GT (a Socket 754, Athlon 64 3200 rig) but that won't do the 8800 justice.

Budget of TT$4000.00

Without further adieu....recommendations?

Board, Processor, Ram, PSU.

I can certainly offer you my 2GB DDR2-1066 lighted RAM from Crucial $800 or a 'better' price. PM me.

Crucial Ballistix Tracer. 4 of the top 6 rigs on the 3DMark06 ranking thread use this RAM. I've overclocked my RAM to DDR2-1120. It's worth it.

EDIT: let me re-word this:
I have my ram OC'ed to DDR2-1120. And I have brand new RAM as well. Would hate to scare off NGW with used, OC'ed parts

You can use these parts as well...Sax can order em for you.
This post can give you an indication of what they are capable of.
You already have the card.  The other parts will certainly fall within your budget.

I will recommend this PSU as well.  TTDirectBuy recently brought me one from Newegg for $1370 TT landed (inclusive of all shipping/Customs).

So a rough estimate may run you as follows:

OCZ700GSXSLI = 1370
Gigabyte P31-S3G = 700 (approx)
Intel E2180 = 800 (approx)
2 GB Crucial Ballistix Tracer = 700 (approx)

Final total = 3570

Of course you can save a bundle if you get a cheaper PSU.

Great recommendations thus far.

My company imports products from the states, so I can get them ordered, no probs. That said, if someone has the part locally at a comparable price, I won't mind spreading the wealth.

One more thing, I'd want the processor to have a stock speed of 2.4ghz. (Saw some games automatically disabling features if your processor wasn't 2.4 or greater). Just to be on the safe side.

^^ Well youre talking an E6600 or greater. That would significantly increase your costs. We talking at least $1500tt for it...that is if you want to go the Intel route.

On the other hand the 5000+ Black Edition has a stock speed of 2.6Ghz and it can be had for as little as $650.

Gigabyte P31-S3G = 700 (approx)
Intel E6600 = 1500 (approx)
2 GB Crucial Ballistix Tracer = 700 (approx)
That leaves about $1100 for a power suppy.

Just saw in another post by arcman, Corsair 550VX Power Supply     US$85

Also, what about this cheapo ram? Corsair XMS2 2GB PC2-6400 TWIN2X20486400     US$45

At that price, I could go for 4GB and be ridiculous, for the same price as the Ballistix.

As a side note, I don't plan to OC the system. That may influence some of your recommendations.

Keep it coming.

Will look to plunk down the $$ at the end of the week.

Some peeps just PM-ed me with another local option.

See below:

That PSU will do nicely.  That RAM will also do nicely.  I should know because I also use it.
NJ's Computers in Arima has this PSU for about 800 TT.  Pretty good for the price.
I can get it for you if you want.

Why?  I have clearly demonstrated that it OCs quite nicely, which he doesn't intend to do.
Other than that, its just as capable as its P35 brethren.

Getting live up to the minute stock updates. Well done.

Think they will arrive by Friday? That's when I'm looking to make the final decision.

Define 'robust'.  Both chipsets can accomodate 45 nm CPUs, so what do you mean?

My only problem there is with the PSU.  I'd trust OCZ/Thermaltake/Antec before I'd trust Corsair for a PSU.
You could get a 600W Thermaltake PSU for less (well, if the place even has any more).
