Yeah, I don't think I'll ever declare an allegiance for any one brand unless I get an extremely long record of great performance. That's the primary reason I'm aiming for the Mushkin Ascent RAM.

Can anyone give me any insight on how much power I'll need if I go CrossFire? I plan on doing it down the road so I'll want enough power available for such an upgrade, but I don't want to have too much more voltage being unused. For some reason, I'm thinking 750W might be a little much. I really have no clue.

Also, would it be more cost-effective to go with the HD 4850 (CrossFire down the road) instead of the HD 4870? Everything I'm seeing shows pretty similar performace at 1680x1050 so I figure I'll save $100 now and get another card when prices fall.

Well, I just took the plunge on a set of memory: Mushkin Redline XP2-8000 for $118.14 shipped. Bought this directly from Mushkin's site.

I went ahead and bought my mouse while I could find it at a good price: $36.99 with free shipping on eBay. Razer's site lists the Copperhead's price at $69.99. Can't complain about a $33 savings there.

Overall, I've saved around $190 so far.

Suggestions are welcome on components yet to be purchased. I'm particularly interested in HDD suggestions. I'm leaning toward a WD Raptor because I'm pretty sure I won't need more than 150GB for this rig.

A 750W should be plenty. In fact a 650W might even work.
