some people say it hasnt really been proven for optical drives or something, i tend to ignore them though. if i would have seen that i would have definatly ordered it instead of this lg one

I think you can go with the Super Talent ram, cheaper and said to be just as good

looks like a kick a$$ rig there.... wish i could go all out like that, but i have as good of computer that i need ATM

If you have the extra cash, go with a better case... maybe an antec for good cooling -p180, or 900

good luck with the build

RevisedTotal: $1,595.90 before rebates 1482.90 after

Any suggestions comments or tips?
Budget is semi-flexible

Thanks a lot in advance
That is a going to be a great system that will last for several years.

And just like it was mentioned above about the RAM, well.......I highly recommend the G.Skill HZ stuff but the Super-Talent being less expensive and just as good (maybe?) it is another good alternative.

So, yes Super-Talent: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820609026

Also, instead of the 7900 GT, get the BFG Tech BFGR7950512GTOCE GeForce 7950GT 512MB same price and the 7950 GT is better because it'd also add an extra 256MB of RAM for a total of 512MB. And the same price as well.

if I go with the original ram choice i can afford the second one for a raid set up.
Do you all think it would be worth it?

or i could not get the raid setup and go with the original ram to spring for the 900.

Too many choices.

don't get the cheaper ram, get either the supertalents or the more $ g skill. don't skimp on that. Also Raid is nice, but you can always upgrade that for cheap. I think your $ is better spent on a nice case to start you off in the right direction.

And like Nasgul said, get the 7950GT, its better then the 7900GT and you can oc it as well so its gonna be a smoking card. for the same price. Try to find a eVGA if you can, better warranty, and you can step up to a better card if you want within 3 months of buying it.
