    with that budget you will have no problems building a good system.
    Look in my sig and you can get some suggestions on parts.

    DVD drives and hard drives and everything else is pretty much up to you. A decent surround sound system for that motherboard would be, of course you can go higher end if you need to blow yourself out of your chair. No sound card really needed as the motherboard above has 8.0 HD audio build right in and when using the Realtek audio drivers it will work just fine.

    I would like to get an sli ready motherboard and for now put 1 graphic card (sli to be able to upgrade and put 2nd card in the future) and than im gonna need good power supplie. I agree with elokito , i like your idea with hard drives. Im gonna try to get 2500gb(7,200) - 300gb(7,200) for storage and 2 hard drives 1,000rpm. One for system and bigger software and other for games:).I got hp p930 monitor its ok i think. got logitech g5 mice and logitech 7.1 Z-5300e speakers. so i think i just need a case and keyboard:).

    That motherboard has a similar feature called Crossfire, where you hook two crossfire video cards together. But the XFX GeFeorce 7600GT that i bought has that too. So it is not SLI but pretty much the same thing. And they may add SLI later via a bios upgrade. But look around and find one that fits all your needs. This fit all mine and is great for gaming. Plays Rainbow Six Vegas on the highest settings without a glitch.
