if you don't mind losing 100gigs and you just want speed, for the same price you can get two 250gig drives with 16mb cache to hook up in raid 0 for your C drive

I would also hold up on the hard drives. Or just get one for now. A new raptor series will be out soon.

Also go with a Q6600 as some others have suggested. Theres some super talent ram that overclocks well somewhere..
here it is
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820609026 really cheap too, get 4gbs of this stuff.
Dont know if you have a PSU already

The Duke - yes its a build log. First time here and I missed that category apparently, sorry for that. Mods feel free to move the topic accordingly!
I already have the 400GB (got that for 60 bucks a few months ago) but I want a different HD for my OS.
Kaivorth, if you are speaking of the Velociraptor, there are other alternatives that have a much higher cost/performance value.
Manyak, that might be a good idea, I have never used RAID so I dont really know too much about it.
As for Noctua vs Thermalright Ultra, they look pretty equal as far as performance. Wouldn't need to buy a seperate fan for the Noctua either. Not sure if I would go so far as buying an extra fan to do push/pull, but at least its available.
Any idea on the effect of the Noctua thermal compound vs Arctic Silver?

I wouldnt plan on overclocking to a certain level. My hope was to hit 3.6 with my quad but can only get to 3.55 stable. If your going that high you will need to lap both the heat sink and the cpu. OTherwise, look at water cooling.

It is simply a goal. I know it depends on the CPU I receive, but hey, its what I am shooting for.
vuxdu - the Q6700 is barely 50$ more than the Q6600 now, and it still has the 10x multiplier vs 9x. Every little bit helps when it comes to overclocking.
Do you really think a 750w psu is worth the difference between it and a 650tx? I've heard the 650 can run sli and everything with plenty of room to spare?

definately get q6700. its only $60 more than the q6600, and it will be hard to get 3.8ghz 24/7 stable with q6600, plus intel is giving the better yorkfield core to the q6700's

q6700 ftw!!!!

Any idea on the effect of the Noctua thermal compound vs Arctic Silver?
Do you really think a 750w psu is worth the difference between it and a 650tx? I've heard the 650 can run sli and everything with plenty of room to spare? Antec True Power 650w vs corsair 650tx?

A 650W would be tight. Its already not enough to run 2 x 2900XT's, just to show you. With 750 You're also stressing it less, meaning it will last longer. If you fully use a 650W, it will die twice as fast as using 650W from a 750W PSU. Thats why I got the 1200W, as if I could ever use that up.
