Wheres the PSU? EDIT: Oh, I see. Get a "name" brand PSU. PCP&C, OCZ, FSP, Silverstone, Ernemax

Drop the x1950xtx's and get a single 8800GTX.

I hear what your saying about the PSU, but I did a little research, and the Xion has a good rep. Later when it's necessary I will upgrade. Right now the money is a factor. Anything that puts out more than 25amps on the 12volt rails is pricy. As for the 8800GTX, I will wait maybe to see what ATI comes out with in response. I have just always preferred ATI. besides I find myself weary of DX10. I'd like to give them a year or so to work out the bugs, and come up with a bunch of stuff that uses it.

If money is a factor, then get an E6600 and save $200 from going with the E6700.

Also get a P5B Deluxe Wi-Fi. Why? I don't know but I feel is much better.

I'm with part where the 8800 GTX is much better. Or just get a single X1950XTX, that card alone is more than enough for several of today's games. And wait and see what ATI has for DX10, maybe their single DX10 card is going to be faster than two X1950XTX in CF, just like the 8800 GTX is faster than two 7900 GTX in SLI.

Definitely, get a better PSU, XION maybe decent but a PC Power & Cooling is just way much better than that, like the Silencer 750W.

For RAM, get the Corsair DOMINATOR DDR2 800 ($275 AMIR), those are much better than the ones you've selected.

For HDDs, the Seagate 250GB with Perpendicular Recording will be a tad better than the Maxtors and the Seagates have also the 16MB cache and also a 5 year warranty.

I don't know now TT liquid cooling but the Swiftech is probably better.

So basically changing the whole set-up but the case.......

If not? Everything you picked up looks good, except I like better the parts I mentioned.
