WD VelociRaptor is a waste of $$ - either A. Go with Raid0 HDD's if you want the space, or B. Go with a SSD, either one will be better.

What do you plan on using as a GPU? Unless its CF/SLI or a 6990 / 590 the PSU is most likely going to be overkill.

Don't go with 1333mhz memory, they tend to not overclock very well, if at all, and 1600mhz which is appreciably faster, will aid in potential overclocking, and in itself is usually better chips (overclock better) - its only a couple $$ more.

If HDD space and speed are need get 3 500 gb. Drives and set them up in the BIOS in RAID 0 with a 500 gb partion
Your speeds will be high but not SSD high, mine run 150
MBPS with no slow down at the end of the benchmark

The particular patriot series memory you linked is very bad, known to have very very bad overclockability (1.65V for generic 1333 CL9 memory is not even acceptable). This DDR3-1600 kit is cheaper and actually OCs.

I forgot to include the powercolor hd 6790
when first i asked what ram I was directed to get the 1333
I would be delighted to get the 1600
also I have had a pair of the 2nd gen 36gb raptors running for years I like em
i will look at 500gb drives
I read that a 32 bit os can only use about 4 gb of ram
thanks for help

The new revision looks pretty good..... I find the purchase of the Phenom II x4 980 to be pretty redundant though. As well as the 890FXA-GD65, which is only partially AM3+ ready when there are boards that are fully AM3+ ready.

You should downsize the processor spendings to, say, Phenom II x4 925 (which can be overclocked to 980 speeds and beyond), and spend on a full AM3+ motherboard which can be had for similar, or even less cost. And spend your money on the FX series CPU. You may also want to buy an aftermarket CPU heatsink with the saved money, for cooler running CPU and better overclock.
