Are you just buying and waiting on good prices on everything?

Do you have another video card to use while you wait?

The PSU is a bit overkill for this build. You can easily SLI 2 GTXs with the 750. I would save a bit on the PSU and squeeze in an 8800.
I'm liking the side fan on the case, since I've heard the motherboard runs a little hot, but would I be just as good buying the one without the side fan since the fan doesn't actually make contact with the north and southbridge? The power supply, I know it's a little overkill, but I was thinking I wouldn't have any problems with upgrades in the future.

Yeah, kinda. I just don't want to spend more money than I have to, considering I've actually seen the gts $30 cheaper it would irk me to buy it right now when I could probably wait a week and see the price go down.

If I have to wait too long, I'll bite the bullet on the video card.

BTW, the motherboard seems to have come all in one piece. Thanks. Let me know if any of my logic is just wrong.

I thought about it, and I figure going with the 610w pcpc psu would be the way to go since it'll probably be a long time before I SLI my video cards if ever really. Oh yeah, the Armor is $140 after rebate if that changes anyone's opinion.

That case is hideous with that fan on the side.

IMO, the E6420 is great.

For a heat-sink/fan? The Tuniq Tower 120 is a much better cooler: http://www.svc.com/tuniq.html

As for the case? I'd ditch that one for the Thermaltake Shark: http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/Produc...uctCode=371216
Same price and the Shark is better.

Excellent for cable management (along with a 750W Silencer EPS12V):

That PC P&C 610 will handle SLI GTS's all day long as well. I just wasn't understanding you not wanting to spend the extra 30 now for the GTS when you were buying the 200 dollar PSU. Your build is a good one. I like the 6420>6600 personally.

Let us know what you do.

I hope you think the Armor without the sidefan is hideous because they look exactly the same. The only thing I don't like is the LEDs. I bought the Armor with the smaller PSU, so I can upgrade later if I want. I would've liked to buy a Lian li pca10 case but it's just too expensive.
