So, it's that time again to build a new rig. I'm thinking of using some parts off my current one, my graphics card really, but everything else will be new. What do you think of it? Suggestions on it? Know of something just as good that could get the price down some? Here it is.

I've got an MSI GTX260 Core 216, would that work well with the EVGA one or should I just spend the extra money and get matching cards?

When I get this I'll be adding 3 more of the monitor I just bought to put those graphics cards to good use.

If you know of anything that would be better or something that could bring the price down please tell me.
