GO with a single 4890 and save for the next gen. I wouldnt be buying GPUs now. But do whatever

Try to get a OEM 920 i7 --->cheaper

Raid 0 smaller HDs maybe WD 640blacks?

all Acer monitors = POS IMO

That's a real kickass rig, but just as Stewart said, there are 40nm DX11 cards coming this summer, so go for a single HD4890 and get one of those cards later on. The rest of the rig looks solid .

Is the DX11 cards coming really soon? I could wait a bit.

4GB Memory? No way bro, get this P6T Deluxe Deal instead for $105 discount

I concur with the single 4890 suggestion until the Directx11 cards come out

Other than the fact that your RAM isn't going to work correctly because it is only dual channel, nice. You should have bought either a 3x2GB kit or a 3x1GB kit.

Sorry, my bad, estimated release date will be Q4 2009 so it will be after the summer . I wasn't paying attention at what I was typing.
