You considered a card reader in lieu of floppy? I think I'll be going ther eon my next build - because so long as you have ONE of your machines in the network with a floppy reader I cannot see any need for any more....

Why are you getting a sli mobo and then buy an ATi card?

Floppies are needed for drivers occasionally, and bios upgrades a little more frequenlty. Most cases have 2 external 3.5" bays anyway.

Secondly if you'r going ati dont get an sli board and sue the money saved to get yourself a 3500+ since the prices just came down a chunk.

Do you need to concern yourself with a network card? The nForce chipset includes it's own networking, and the nForce boards I've seen thus far tend to have there own ethernet hookup. You could probably save a buck by not concerning yourself with a discrete ethernet card, unless for some reason you need 2 ethernet hookups.

Looks like a kickin setup - I have to agree on the SLI / ATI arguement - but hey... it is an X800. mmmmmmmmmmm. pixels.
