I am building my first computer. This computer will be primarily used for gaming. However, I will also use it to do mundane student tasks(word processing etc.). I am very interested in overclocking. Here are the parts:
Case- Antec Nine Hundred http://www.newegg.co.....bnine+hundred
Motherboard- xfx 780i
CPU- Q6600 http://www.newegg.co...N82E16819115017
PSU- Corsair 750W http://www.newegg.co...N82E16817139006
RAM- 2 OCZ Reaper 4GB(2x2GB) DDR2 800 http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820227267
Hard drive- Seagate Barracuda 750GB http://www.newegg.co...N82E16822148298
Video card- 2 ECS 8800GTS (g92) http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814134037
Heatsink- XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...835233003\

I am a bit concerned as to whether all of these parts will fit in the case. Please tell me if you any suggestions.

Hi there,

Welcome to Geeks to Go.

Everything looks good. Here is the proper link for the CPU Heatsink:
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16835233003

I don't think there should be any problems with everything fitting in the case, although you may have some fun getting it all in there in the first place!

Are you needing to add an optical drive (eg. DVD Burner), and an OS (eg. Vista), to this build?

Cheers

Troy

Thanks. I just ordered everything and I'll be using windows vista(64 bit). For the optical drive, I bought a decebt dvd/cd burner.

I'm not sure about the exact dimensions of that heatsink, but you may encounter a clearance issue with the RAM heatsinks and the CPU aftermarket cooler.
Other then that the build looks like a good build. Good luck :)
