I think it is for everything except the video card(s). And Flying Fox is right - you could buy a GIGABYTE GA-M57SLI-S4, Athlon X2 5000+ Black Edition, and 2x2GB of 800MHz DDR2 for almost exactly $250... and maybe you could overclock the CPU to 3.0 GHz... but that is probably the absolute most performance you could wring out of $250.
Why should he buy just two cards for SLI when four would be so much better?Flying Fox wrote:If you are thinking about getting a 2nd 8600GT for that SLI I would say don't bother. Go read up on the SLI-bashing thread.

Thanks for the great help! :D
