I recommend the Antec 900 case, same cooling, you can put water cooling in it and it's much cheaper compared to that coolmaster.

Raptors stink, you'll be more then satisfied with the 1TB drive, the performance difference doesn't really exist in real work tests.

Don't get the ultra, they're not worth the difference between the GTX. There is no point in SLIing them unless you have to play at ultra settings for everything.

Never heard of the sound card before, if you game get the xtreame gamer from creative.

PSU is overkill, way over. I don't think any setup would/should ever require more then 850W, not to mention you'll have troubles fitting that thing in your case.

That monitor doesn't have HDCP so I can't recommend it.

7.1 is pointless, go for a better set of 5.1 speakers.

Quad FX is a terrible solution to achieve quad cores, motherboard costs make it ridicules considering it loses pretty well ever time in intel which costs a fair margin less. Also, this motherboard won't be able to be used of Phantem(the code name is something like that), AMD's next processors.

Just a heads up 32bit OS's only support 3.48GB(somthing around there).

Certainly a very high-end system. I can only fault the Raptors (loud and hot). A 1tb drive will have close the same performance in most tasks. Also the 2x4GB memory modules are very expensive. Why not 4x2GB modules?

James_8970, I'd suggest a little more positive tone in future posts.

ekk he did too, never even noticed that.
I saw 4GB at the computex reviews, never thought any where on sale yet. That motherboard doesn't even support 4GB sticks as far as I know, I don't know of any that do....

You sure? This is the only memory I'm seeing him having:

Looks like 8x1GB in total.

Yup, that board like pretty well every non sever board, only has 4 ram slots.
I think I'm getting a little to tired, i knew i saw 4x1gb (never noticed the second set till you guys said something) then I thought I saw what Admin saw, have to mention I didn't see the second set though beforehand. :blink:
