I saw you are considering these. I love them. They literally give the best. I was considering both and these are the parts that they use on them. I ended up getting the Opus series since I do video editing but one of my friends got Defender Mark II and he absolutely loves it.
Okay these are the exact specs on the first computer so you know you are getting the best parts:
RAM – CORSAIR XMS2 DOMINATOR 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)
Motherboard – ASUS M2N-SLI Deluxe Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce 570 SLI MCP ATX AMD Motherboard
Power Supply – COOLMAX CUG-700B ATX 12V( V.2.2) 700W Power Supply
CPU – AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ Brisbane 2.3GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM2 Processor
These are overclocked ofcourse while they keep it underwarranty.
Hard drive – Western Digital Caviar RE2 WD5000YS 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive
If you want they will split this in two and put raid for free. Your choice.
Video Card – MSI NX7900GS-T2D512E-OC GeForce 7900GS 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Over CLock Edition Video Card
Sound Card – M-AUDIO Revolution 5.1 5.1 Channels 24-bit 192KHz PCI Interface High-Definition Sound Card
Cooler – GIGABYTE GH-PCU23-VE 92mm Ball CPU Cooler
ASUS DVD Burner
Windows Vista Home (can get XP)
This is ofcourse just the first computer.
On the second one, you get better sound card, cpu but the main is the video card which you get the beast:
POWERCOLOR X1950XT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 VIVO PCI Express x16 VIVO Video Card with Artic Cooling Fan
Not to mention you get alot of other cool stuff.
Also what Seneca says, its not true. Carbonfrost offers the best prices. Try building these yourselves and you will spend alot more including him.

Don’t listen to Khelben about the case. A full tower is perfect for SLI, getting newer Nvidia card, as they get longer and longer each year. Also, don’t get OCZ, they have bad timing, I recommend getting G.Skill or Corsair. Also get a 1066mhz ram, it’s much better compatible with your parts. Also DON’T get Rosewill, they have low quality parts, they are mostly for lower end parts and budget parts. If you don’t plan to upgrade your computer for more than 2 years, get the 780i, Q9XXX, and another GTX for SLI.
Good setup..? (new gaming rig)?
Okay.. Here are the specs for a computer I’m thinking of custom making.. It’s gonna be a AMD as you can.
Graphics Card : XFX HD-597A-CNB9 Radeon HD 5970 Black Edition 2GB 512 (256 x 2)-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Case: Sunbeam Transformer IC-TR-US-BA-WOPSU Black Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case
Any particular reason why you’re buying a $700, top of the line GPU, while the rest of the parts are far from that quality?
I’d suggest an SSD since it will be a gaming PC. I’d suggest a hexa-core CPU as well. AMD has one for about the same price and socket as the one you listed above. The heatsink you listed also does not list Phenom II as a supported CPU, only Phenom.
Have fun with the build!

That’s is one mightily fine system you could play every game on that.
What monitor have you got cos you want a 22″ that can go to about 1900X1200 to get the best out of the graphics card.
Also at some point you could upgrade the RAM if you want the computer quicker
