good. you went with p35. i wouldnt change much. although 2x1gb ram is enough for gaming and easier to deal with, but all in all its gna be a great build.

Only problems I can see is the CPU and the GP card, but thats just because I'm a fan boy. (Woot ATI/AMD)

Great Cooler, and always a fan of Ultra products! Go Modular if you can.

yeah i decided to go with the p35, **** sli, tri-sli... one good gfx card with a highly overclockable board sounds good. so you say just get 2 nice sticks of 1 gig, and later if i need more ram just buy it then? keep in mind im going to have CAD programs on my computer too as well as some video editting and cs3 hopefully
