So you'd rather spend a thousand dollars in a couple of graphics cards - which in one year will be worth 200 each - to drive a Full HD monitor? I really don't see it as a good investment

Efficiency... if he's spending that much money on a build he should go with a 80 Plus Gold, I think. And if you think it's way too much wattage he could just step down to a AX750W, I don't think there's anything better at that price (that's 80+Gold).

Uh, I did not recommend the Caviar Black, it's a waste of money. I told him to get the F4, which is the same as the F3 except it's 5400RPM, because it's quieter. If he prefers the F3, go ahead, it must be the same price. And I also said get a 2TB, since the price difference is worth it. Why not RAID 0? Hard drives fail. ALWAYS fail. Or maybe it's just my bad luck.

Yeah, I didn't explain my opinion clearly. He'd be fine with the motherboard audio, but if he want a dedicated sound card the DX is an excellent choice for the money (and so is the DG). Though if he'd like some hi-fi headphones, like the Sennheiser HD555 which I put on the end of my post, he would benefit from the STX.

That's just my opinion. Everybody has different tastes.

Yeah, that's why I still left the DeathAdder as the choice . The DeathAdder is basically the Mamba with a cord and a lower DPI sensor, it's very ergonomic. I regret buying my Mamba. IF YOU ARE GOING FOR A DEATHADDER BE SURE YOU BUY THE NEW 3500DPI VERSION AND NOT THE OLD 1800DPI!

Hm, I haven't had my Mamba for much time, so I can't be sure if there's any performance penalty as the batteries get older. My friend had one for a year though and he never complained about anything.

MONITOR - I'd recommend stick with the U2211H / U2311H... there's a world of difference between TN and IPS, and from what I've heard from owners, the higher response time does NOT interfere with gaming.

SSD - Once again I must repeat what I've said. DON'T buy a SSD right now, wait for the Vertex 3 to come out.

@VW_TDI_02 I really like your build though. Those are some sweet Ripjaws!
