Get an X-Fi Prelude instead.. EAX5 is pretty win in the BF series.

Good choice! And they come with a lifetime warranty unlike the Dominator's (I think they have 5 year?)

they are better then WD Blacks by most benchmarks
I'm not a fan of Samsung, and I've also traded the blacks for some RE3's.

I'll look into it, but that's pretty much set in stone.

yet you buy a 60 dollar cooling solution for a 2.1 ghz dual core?

Also...

@OP - Don't you think the TJ07's a bit overkill since you're just aircooling? Other than that, it looks great.

While I like how you're thinking, I don't want 3 5870's nor do I even think I want 2. I'm set on the board I have and I don't like the H50. The Obsidian doesn't have what I'm looking for either.
