Skip the Striker and just get the plain eVGA 680i... then use the other money for a nice 5.1 setup.

The reason I didn't use the eVGA board is because there's lots of complaints about RAID on that board. If you plan to go with the eVGA board, I would suggest at least waiting until they fix the RAID problem.

I would say get my build except for the E6600 swap that for quad core and you could swap my mobo for the Striker if you want to but Hard OCP said that it did not overclock as well as the eVGA 680

Too many responses to list this already, so I apologize if it has been said, but the ASUS 680i board is a great board, but it is not the best for overclocking. The ASUS PHW DH Deluxe is still better for overclocking according to Toms Hardware, so you may want to make a note of that.

When will the Samsung display be available from Dell? I would rather get something smaller than 30 because I may not have the desk space for it anyway.

That's sweet! The memory, unfortunately, is a no go with that mobo as it only supports up to 800mhz. Just learned that myself.
Also, my feelings on the quad core is that it's not as cost effective as the X6800. The X6800 is kick ass, even without OC. Most games don't use both cores let alone 4 cores, so the X6800 should be enough for now. Did you know Tiger has the QX6700 for $1100?

I found the ASUS Striker at AJump.com for $331, but they don't have it in stock. What's the deal with this mobo? It appears to be a tough item to get your hands on.

I don't know much about water cooling. From what I have read, and maybe I did not read enough, but a high end fan like the Tuniq Tower is as good as a low to mid-range water cooling system. That should be good enough. The water cooling stuff is for all you crazy kids that run your systems on steriods I mean, what will they think of next to use for cooling? Nitrogen?
