Hey everyone.
This is my first post/ first build. Can anyone tell me if this set-up is any good

CORSAIR CMPSU-850TX 850W ATX12V 2.2 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Active PFC Power Supply
COOLER MASTER RC-690-KKN1-GP Black SECC/ ABS ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Intel Core i7 920 2.66GHz 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core Processor
ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard
OCZ Platinum 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory
Western Digital Caviar Black WD7501AALS 750GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive
EVGA 896-P3-1255-AR GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 896MB 448-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card
LG 22X DVD±R DVD Burner with LightScribe Black SATA Model GH22LS30
Nippon Labs ICR-BB All-in-one USB +eSATA Card Reader
Logitech LX 710 Laser Black USB Cordless Standard Desktop
Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 64-bit for System Builders


The total comes to around $1250, which is within my budget.
And gets me a lot more computer than, say, a Gateway FX6800, for the same money.
Please let me know if you would change anything. Am i missing anything?

Thanks for any advice!

The only problem I see is that the case doesn't have wings. Cause that thing is gonna fly! :)

Seriously though, it looks like a great build. Good luck with it.

I have hunted high up and low down for a case with wings, or even better, one with an anchor to keep it grounded!! :)

Thanks Ferrari.

Got all the parts today, so I may be back for advice when i start building it tomorrow.

Start a new topic if is has to do with the install of the OS or drivers type of thing. That isn't my specialty... :)
