Just an update for you all. Made a few changes that were recommended and here they are:

CPU cooler is being switched to this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835233003
(XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler)

Read the review for it here:
http://www.frostytech.com/top5heatsinks.cfm


Also decided to go with the EVGA 750i FTW board instead of the MSI cause it also has solid state capacitors and will allow me to use this faster RAM:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227289


I'm going with the Retail Version of Vista Home Premium also.

get the x64 edition of vista.

and get the same drive with light scribe for $2 more, it may come in handy.

and the 750GB hdds are $30 more, for your storage one, id get the 750gb version.

Ok guys, I'm about ready to finalize this build, but I have one more change to make on the PSU if you think it's a good decision:

Newegg.com - XIGMATEK MC NRP-MC751 750W ATX12V Ver.2.2 / EPS12V Ver. 2.92 Power Supply 100 - 240 V cUL, CE, TUV, FCC - Power Supplies

Since this has four six-pin connectors and it's modular won't this be better for upgrade ability in case I decide to go with higher-end video cards in the future (i.e. 9800GTX or possibly the 10 series)?

Anxiously awaiting your comments, so I can "clicky-clicky" on the order button soon.

what the deal with the 750?? Seems like a pretty lame mobo why not a 680i or 780

If you have a valid license for a previous version of windows you should buy the

and save some $$$, or you could get the (if anyone knows what causes this stupid like bug, PM me, it is getting on my nerves). You can perform a clean install with just the upgrade disk, no previous install necessary. Boy do I need to write the Tutorial on this, must do it today!

Check out the ASUS P5N-D it is their version of the EVGA 750i FTW and its great when put together with the E8400. I have this setup and love it and am currently at 3.82 ghz overclock working on hitting 4.0 soon and with temps not breaking 50C which has alot to do with the cooling also but I like my setup and would definitely reccomend it...

Total Cost (with shipping):
$2034.00

equals $1969.60 Total!


I know this is about a hundred more than I had originally. However I got trigger happy and ordered the original setup which included the 2 samsung SATA DVD drives, the OCZ Silencer PSU, and one IDE 7200.10 Seagate HDD.

On this final build I went with the Corsair 750w PSU, a Liteon IDE DVD. I think it will be a better setup than the previous. The Corsair PSU has more connections for upgrades, which is my main reason for switching. And instead of having one of my HDD on IDE I can have all 3 on SATA now.

So now I have an OCZ Silencer 750w PSU, a Samsung 20X SATA DVD Drive, and a Seagate 7200.10 IDE HDD that I am going to RMA back to newegg unless someone convinces me otherwise.

I've recieved all the parts except my Cosmos Case, which should be here tomorrow afternoon! Hopefully installation will go smooth and I can post my victory thread on my new system shortly after I get it built. Any final suggestions before I start building?
