couple of years ago I built a C2D machine/Abit board, 4GB's Ram with EVGA GTS 512-8800. 150 Raptor for OS, 400GB WD for data (pics/mp3s).
I'm looking to build another box for Windows 7 now. (I get enterprise for $10 bucks thorough my University's site license)
Needless to say, I used to be hip on all the current technologies...but the video and mobo chipsets have evolved quite a bit...need advise there.
Not sure I wanna a lay down for a 350+ video card....what might some good choices for a 150-200 dollar card be?
I'm considering quad core, and also need a mobo...I like EVGA (and Intel and would like onboard RAID1).
I've got this case picked out and am pretty sure I'm doing this...

I'll use it to burn video and play games, i.e. COD-MW, BF2, Crysis.
Any suggestions for a fellow hardcore techie?
