New Rig - Ordering within a month. Feedback, please.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've been changing and rearranging parts for a while. So here's the must-have items for this rig.

Sandy Bridge (or any 1366 socket if the fix for the p67 motherboards isn't out.)
nVidia video card(s)
3D Vision with an extra pair of glasses
Acer 3D monitor(s)
800D Case
6-8 GB RAM
Do not include a Blu-Ray player, I already have one.
Creative Sound Card
Logitech Z-5500
A good keyboard, mouse, and mouse pad.

I don't NEED those, but those items are preferred.

Budget of $3,700 including shipping.

So please, reconfigure this setup I'm considering:

800D

Kaze Fan Controller

WD Blue Drive 500GB Data Drive

Acer 3D monitor

SilverStone Front panel 5.25" to 3.5" converter.

Evga GTX 570 (2, SLI)

SoundBlaster X-Fi Titanium

Corsair AX1200 (headroom for future upgrades.)

Microsoft SideWinder keyboard

Logitech MX518 mouse

Rosewill Card Reader 3.5"

Arctic Silver Thermal Compound remover

2 tubes of MX-4

Startech Anti-Static mat

Rosewill 45-piece computer tool kit

(Corsair 6-8 gb ram, depends on SB)

(Asus or Evga motherboard. Depending on SB)

(Intel processer, depends on SB)

NVIDIA 3D Vision Kit and Extra Pair of glasses

Eset NOD32

Xigmatek 120mm fan w/ White LEDs (3)

Xigmatek 140mm fan

OCZ Vertex 2 60GB System Drive

Logitech Z-5500



So any advice would be great! Thanks!

EDIT: I'm building a custom WC loop, which is not included in the $3,700.

id drop the rosewill kit and the anti static matt... just use a table and touch the case before you touch any components... and all you really need is a phillips screw driver...

a cotton swab and rubbing alcohol will remove thermal compound just fine... lol

other than that i think it looks good

Fshizl, I don't have any demagnetized screwdrivers, so I'll just keep that. I dropped the anti static mat. Are the fans I chose good fans for a radiator? Would 2 gtx570's be enough for 3D Vision surround?
