I actually took a good long look at some of the ATi GPUs, but my dad works for Intel, so unfortunately AMD is not an option for me.

Didn't realize 2TB had gotten that cheap, I'll probably switch to one of those. You're definently right about the bezels, but the ViewSonics are only 200 each which is the best deal I've found so far on 24" LED monitors.
You might want to go for something like this:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824005196
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824009245

Oh actually.. Forget those.

Dell is selling their U2311H for 230$. That's an IPS with super-thin bezels!

Go go go.

Here is the update with your recommendations. Let me know what you think!
You never responded to:

Data Drive: If it's only for data, get a 2TB green. I have one and it's fast enough.
PSU: Seriously, get the Silverstone.

I believe it will be. Also I happen to have a Windows 7 Home Edition DVD lying around the house.
Thank You OCN!

Sorry.

Dell Outlet.

It's where I got my 3007WFP-HC. Couldn't be happier.

I'm not sure if your aware of the recent problems discovered with Sandy Bridge Chipset.It has to do with SATA 3.0 degrading over a period of time.
Just read the article in MaximumPC magazine.Intel has set aside 700 million to help pay for the replacement of boards,systems & notebooks.Ports 0 - 1 which are the 6gb ports are unaffected.2 - 5 are the 3gb ports are subject to errors.Thermal issues seem to make matters worse.SATA 3gb ports can generate errors & eventually fail.

I hope that nothing goes wrong with your system.Just wanted to share the info.

You're about two months late, my friend.

I don't know how you could have missed it, but the revised, fixed boards are launching now.. and that is what the OP intends to get.
