Instead of the Zalman I and many others would suggest the Big Typhoon or the Tuniq Tower, they are a step above.

Also unless you are dead set on the Western Digital 250 GB you might want to look into a Seagate Perpindicular storage drive, I hear they are bloody fast.

Other than that, have fun with that.

Looks good although a pair of nvidia cards under SLI with a 680i board would net you better overclocks (the evga board is hitting 470 FSB). Also not familiar with coolmax for power supplies. Otherwise nice

I assume the ammo because you do lanparties?

Don't do Crossfire now with DX10 around the corner

Either settle for a cheap(ish) single card and wait for R600 or get an 680i board with an 8800GTX

Nay... those KS drives are really good... basically a toss up between them and the perps.

I have the KS, and love 'em... plenty fast. Good stuff

I'd get an eVGA or XFX 8800GTX and an Asus 680i board instead of going CF months before ATi/AMD's DX10 GPU. It all look nice, and, oh do not get the VX. Horrible mounting brackets, get the normal one and swap out the fans. Put a SilverStone FM-121B, 110CFMs.

EDIT - PSU. I'd pick one from a very well known company, such as PC Power & Cooling, SeaSonic, OCZ , etc. Personally, I'd get the 750W PCP&C or 700W SeaSonic or the 700W OCZ with that setup, especially with that budget, you could go SLi with 8800GTX's and a 3.0GHz C2D.
