If I was you mate I would change the 21" LCD for bigger one with a max of 12ms response, make sure its HD ready aswell

Also the speaker system you got on there, maybe change for a 7.1 version?

The Keyboard - Logitech G15

All in all good system though alot of cash lol

I just did something very similar to this myself... except that I went with the socket 939/opty 180...

With the Tyan board and the dual 7900GTX you may run into some trouble with space for the cards, though I confess that my own video cards aren't coming in until later today, so I can't say for sure. I do know that the one card that I have, currently, takes up slightly more than two slots. Having two slots in between the PCIe slots is definitely a plus, especially if you want to go with more than stock cooling on the GPUs.

I also went with the Plextor DVDRW, and now I am regretting it. It's already failed on three burns, and I haven't even had the system up for a week. My cheaper burner in my old system actually fares better on burns, but it's beige, and I just can't bring myself to put it into my new black case...

As far as the sound card goes... I know a lot of people would think that those of us who get Fatal1ty cards are little fanboy rimjobs, but I had a good reason for selecting it. I previously had an Audigy eX, and the external box was a pain in the ass to deal with some times. The Fatal1ty release is the only one that has the onboard ram with the internal interface, and even though it added one more ribbon to the inside of my case (which can't be replaced with a rounded cable unless you make one), I still prefer it much more than dealing with the external interface again.

I would definitely consider going with some good 7.1 speakers. I ended up with the Inspire set, but mainly only because I could not seem to get my hands on anything better. The Gigaworks set completely blows it away, and I'm wishing I had held off until I could have found it.

I love my G7 mouse. It's very comfortable in my hand, and smooth to use. The battery packs are already charged out of the box, and switching them couldnt be easier. The software even let's you know when the batteries are getting low, if you aren't paying attention.

With the monitor... I don't know what you are looking to do with it, but I got a Westinghouse 37" 1080p (1920x1080 native res), and I couldn't be happier with it. Every game in my collection looks sweet on it. Really crisp, with nice darks. 12ms response time. If you are going to do any gaming at all, I would definitely suggest looking to a different monitor. Don't get anything with more than 12ms response time. That's right on the edge. I don't have any trouble with how fast this monitor responds in high speed situations, but I can tell that I would, if it were any slower. If you are set on something as small as a 21", I would think about looking into the Dell line. Their 24" model kicks some serious ass, and I believe it has an 8ms response.

Just my two cents...

I would love to know how the dual opty 280s work out for you, if you still go with the Tyan board. If you get good results, I may find myself doing some RMAs...!

Because he's been asking about non-EEC ram recently..... and the £10,000 price tag.
Might have had a drastic change of heart of course though

Try to get a second block for your CPU instead of having one air, one water. Incredible build, anyone would love it.
