2 320gb sata hard drives
1 150gb raptor hard drive sata
2gb patriot ddr2 800 viper memory
diamond 7.1 24 bit sound card (had for ever lol dont no if the board sound card would be better)
5 antec 3 speed blueled fans
zalman 9700 cpu fan
850 watt antec quadro
1 18x lg dvd burner
1 18x pioneer dvd burner
two 8800 512mb cards
Coolmaster stacker 830 case

Ok the question is I wanted to no if I put all this stuff together with a abit fatality fp-in9 sli board and a intel core 2 duo
E4600 2.4 ghz would this be a good system.I could over clock it maybe I have good ram I think . and a big zalman 9700 already and like 7 120mm fans. Does this stuff match good????

That CPU has a lower FSB than others I would suggest getting something with a higher FSB such as the E6750 which is currently cheap. That way you can overclock easily.

I went with the intel quad core cpu q6600 I think it's 2.4 I got it for $200 bucks and I upgraded the board to a 680sli Xfx board. i think this will be better.

Good choice, it should run very nice for you.

I would recommend just using the onboard audio, I don't think the Diamond would be any better/worse, so you might as well leave it out.

ya I decided to use the onboard rather than the sound card. I have had that sound card for a million years lol and a extra 1gb kit of ddr 4oo memory. I should ebay them or some thing.
