Do you like? If not, what would you change about it?



Edit: Added the Tuniq Tower, Arctic 5, and WD 320GB AAKS

If Microcenter's site ever loads, I believe they have the Q9450 in store for $300. It might be OEM though.

I would change case to mid tower. And 750W is an overkill. I have Antec 900 and I like it. Here's link http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...nine%2bhundred

And no cooler and such?

Hm. Cheaper is always better.

But the build in itself, what do you think? The parts, regardless of price...

Hmm on the case. 750w is for future video card upgrades.

Cooler, definitely forgot to stick in there. I'll add it now

Edit: What do you think between these four?

ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro 92mm CPU Cooler - Retail
ZALMAN 9500A 92mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler - Retail
ZALMAN CNPS9700 LED 110mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler - Retail
Tuniq Tower 120 P4 & K8 CPU Cooler - Retail
(The top three on here and then the tuniq tower)

And any other cooling suggestions?

Apart from the hdd everything looks good . I'd change your hdd to a 500gig one, shouldn't be too much more.
Oh, hai.

No it's not. The single platter WD 320GB AAKS and dual platter WD 640GB AAKS are currently the fastest drives on the marked. And in terms of quality and warranty, the companies are equal. You'll hear raves and rants about either company... so it's a tie Plus, the drive he choose is a 7200.10 series, which is a generation old. At least get a 7200.11 if you go Seagate.

And regarding the cooler, of the four you listed the Tuniq Tower is your pick. It's not even a competition.

So, what are your thoughts about my SLI rig
