Sub'd. I like the "Stealth" feel of the case. I suppose you are going to keep it flat black?

Mobo: EVGA X-58 SLI Micro 121-BL-E756-TR
I chose this since it was IMO, the best selection for price vs performance vs features. I almost went with the Asus Rampage II since I've had great experience with Asus mobos on previous builds but it is $50 more expensive and I've admired EVGA stuff for quite some time. It's the Classified's baby brother.

GPU: EVGA GTX 260 Core 216
Same reason for choice as mobo. I also feel major components from the same manufacturer will play nicely together.

CPU: Intel i7 920
What else? Price, performance, stupid OC capabilities.

RAM: Corsair Corsair TR3X6G1600C8D Dominator
I've had no complaints with Corsair in previous builds and yet another price vs performance consideration. I've read it's a decent overclocker.

HDD: Western Digital 640GB Caviar Black
Again, experience with WD products and they have a good exchange program if they fail within the warranty period. Not the fastest but the blacks have a five year warranty. I really wanted to go with a solid state but they're still too expensive. The speed and quiet were tempting but ye old spinning disk has a significant price advantage.

They come matte black but you can get them with colored accents. If you contact PC DesignLabs I believe you can request any color? I've even seen them polished too!
