Great board and CPU. That card is only about 5-10% better than an 8800GTS 512MB and you're paying about $100 more for it. If you can live with that, then go for it. My choice would be an E8500 and the 8800GTS 512MB for about the same money.

Heh i hit the enter button way to soon on that one, Newegg doesn't carry the E8500. The 8800GTS thing i know i kinda just went for the 9800gtx for the hell of it.

You'll be happy with your build. That board is good for overclocking.

I have never heard of that psu in my life. I think you should get this psu because it is better quality and it has more wattage along with one rail.

Also, you really don't need that motherboard unless you plan to have 3 video cards in your computer. You can get the 680i which can save you some money.

I would consider a q9300, doesn't necessarily over clock as well but it does have those extra 2 cores. Of course its up to you, whether you want cpu speed or the quad core. It all depends on what you're planning on using this computer for.

If you also want to pump some extra performance out of the system, add another raptor in a striping array since you're bottle neck will happen at the hd level.. I would also consider an aftermarket cooler for the cpu (Zalman or T.r.u.e.or something), seeing as you have a massive case (i have one liquid cooled right beside me).

I might consider a different power supply, something a little more well known, like antec or corsair, ocz might be alright too (not an expert in the psu department).

The motherboard i picked out only supports one video card, 3 PCIe slots doesn't mean tri-sli. Notice the chipset is P35.

The power Supply you've picked out has 50 more watts, and 4 more amps, sorry but thats not worth an upgrade from what i have. I do like the fact that its single rail but its not modular so thats a no go for me.

I was considering this PSU

That is an excellent psu. I was going to list the 650watt one but 700 works.

And sorry about the pcie slot thing. It is late over here.
