I plan on heavily modding my case, adding windows, vents, etc.

All opinions are welcome! Help me out!

EDIT: UPDATED PRICES AND COMPONENTS

Processor: Keeping my Q6600 G0 Stepping

Case: LIAN LI PC-A71B $225

Motherboard: DFI LANPARTY DK X48-T2RS LGA 775 Intel X48 $225

Video Cards: 2x Sapphire Radeon HD 4870 $595

Power Supply: ZALMAN ZM850-HP 850W Modular $170

Memory: CORSAIR DOMINATOR 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 1066 (TWIN2X4096-8500C5DF) (with MIR) $96

Hard Drive: WD Velociraptor 300GB 10000 RPM $300

Monitor: Acer P243WAid 24" Widescreen" $390

DVD/CD: Pioneer 20X DVD±R DVD SATA (DVR-215DBK) $30

Subtotal: $2,031

This leaves me with $420 for water cooling and $50 for tax (found some tax-free retailers).
If I buy that in the UK it will cost me roughly £1450 ($2900). You don't know how lucky you guys are.

Geez, man, that sucks . I wish I could help!

Heh, you think I'm lucky now...wait until you read that I got this $2,500 for free through my college computer reimbursement program .

P.S. I'm currently waiting for my Lian Li A71B case to arrive. Once it gets here, I'm going to take a look and start purchasing my other parts. Still waiting for some more news on the 4870x2, I may wait for that.
