8/10

I love everything except.

CPU & HDD

Aren't the price drops coming soon, $266 quad core? I think it is late June right?

I vote for 2 x Seagate Barracuda 250gb 7200.10 Same price, but better!

Also i'm not too sure about PC power cooling PSUs, i tend to trust silverstone and ocz from all the reviews and things i have heard.
But if you did your research good for you

if its alot of money for you, i would consider going down to a 8800GTS. IMO the 8800GTX is way overkill. The 8800GTS will play any game at max right now anyways. and it would save a couple hundred bucks.

getting the right stuff?

Well, ditch the nForce chipset and go for an Intel chispet, like a P5B-Plus for $138.

Wait till July 23rd and go Quad for $266. Then again, if you can't wait, go E6600.

Also, I'm not sure about you but that Thermaltake HSF is $55 now, so why not go with the best air-cooling instead for $3 less? Behold: Tuniq Tower 120!

RAID0 Seagates would be better.

750W Silencer Quad would be better (though not completely necessary)

Thermalright SI-128 + FM121 would OWN that TT.

Not really overkill for a 24" monitor. Esp when Crysis comes out.

680i is pretty decent and I want it in case I decide to go SLI later...and the Tuniq doesnt work for me cause I want it blowing down on my board so I can cool the NB, PWM and RAM. Anyway Ive been waiting since the beginning of April and I dont wanna wait any longer.
Very nice!
