  • If it were me, I would not get Velociraptors. It would be better to get an SSD and a couple Spinpoint F4s. Put your OS on a small SSD, games/apps on the F4s (RAID 0), then put data on some larger drives (RAID 1).
  • Unless you know you have a particular need for it, 8GB of RAM is a bit much. If you're just gaming, 4GB is plenty. Also, getting 1600MHz with CAS latency of 9 or less would be nice.
  • Other than that, it looks good. You might want to get some more fans for your case.

What is your budget?

Are you American or other?

You can purchase online and build it yourself right?

Don't waste your money on velociraptors. Get a caviar black 7200rpm.

Also, that power supply is beautiful, albeit overkill. Look for a 650watt modular corsair or seasonic.

Also, I'd like to see you get a better video card. The 6870s are kickass. I recommend that you get an xfx. You'll notice much better performance for only a little bit more money.

As far as the ram, get a solid pair of 4 gigs for around 50ish bucks. If you can afford it though, try and grab some 1600 MHz cas latency 7.

Finally, with the money from the ram get the 1090t x6. Not so much in games, but in other uses you'll see considerably more performance. Get a nice Xigmatek Dark Knight to cool it instead and grab some artic cooling mx-2 thermal compound. You'll get amazing temps for a nice OC.

Throw it all together and you'll have a monster of a rig.
