Suggestions/Improvements to New Build

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Alright guys, I'm going to be building a new PC within a month or less and already picked out the parts. I'm just asking for input on what I can improve/replace/etc. My budget for this is about $1600 and I dont want water cooling, sound card or a SSD(at least now). Heres the build so far:

Case: HAF 922 (cannot get a 932 due to size restrictions under my table)
CPU: i7 920
GPU: ATI 5870
Memory: Corsair XMS3 6GB DDR3-1600 CL8 8-8-8-24
Motherboard: ASUS P6T (would really like more input here)
PSU: Corsair CMPSU 750TX
CPU Cooling: Corsair H50
Rest is drives etc.

Alright thanks for the suggestions. For a push-pull setup(since Im not so familiar), where would I need to place the fans? And for the RAM suggestion, I'm getting that Corsair for $140 AMIR on microcenter so the G skill is $40 more and I dont know if its worth it.
