put in a 60GB or 120GB SSD and you're set!!! Boot from the SSD and install all your games on the RAID volume.

I recommend different ram because Corsair is so expensive.

If you sill want to spend $175+ on ram, get the CAS 6 Redline.

OH I didn't see that PSU. You don't need 1000w at all. Get a Seasonic X650 or X750
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...51087&Tpk=x750
It's one of the best PSUs you can buy.

I haven't seen reviews on that heatsink, but I would recommend either a Ven-X, Dark Knight or Megahalems if you want to stay with air cooling. The Corsair H50 is about the same price and it looks a bit nicer. It also peforms the same as a Megahalems.

Was planning on adding another EVGA GTX480 for sli. Also a 9800GTX+ for Physics and another back-up drive. That's why I went with such a large power supply. Getting the Corsair in a combo deal with the memory:

Thought about the H50, but really don't want to use liquid. lol
Your right about the SSD, but was planning that alittle latter when the prices drop a bit.
