After seeing a value to performance comparison of Core i7 builds my friend decided to go even higher than $1.5k in order to build even better rig. I'm leaving Sli as an option for future expansion and only going with one GTX285 for now. Sometimes in July my friend will buy the second (and maybe even 3rd) gpu for Sli. I've being really breaking my neck over past 3 days on which would be the best air or air+tec cooler for 1366 chips. Realy need some advice!!! CM-V10 looks like a champ but reviews show that it sucks!!!

Here is the pre-final list of components I'll be ordering today!
The link to your build doesn't work. If you just put it in your own wish list then others can't see it. You have to put it in public wish lists but that can take a day for all of the public wish lists to update. I guess you are just going to have to link each part individually.
Also Tri-Sli isn't very good for the price to performance. It may only give about 20-30 FPS boost at the most and only on the higher resolutions. Read this article on Tri-SLi & TriFire.

RAFFY your links don't work either
