I *love* the CPU/mobo combo, because I have the same one!

For $30 more, you can get the 1TB version of that WDC HDD.

One thing I wish I had done with my 955BE is put it on this board:

If you have a bit more money, I would recommend that board if you want to overclock at all.

I love the video card as well. If you get more money, though, I would recommend then 4890. It's about $30 more expensive than what you have there.

Have fun with that build! You did excellent on the pricing.

Overall a good build... I personally would have switched to a 720 and spent the extra on a 4890 toxic, but the 955 is a great chip and will be able to stretch its legs down the road when you do a GPU upgrade.

There is no better choice atm for cooling Phenom 2 than the Mugen 2 IMO.

Everything is fine, except some ppl like me would suggest more popular brands. Like G.skill for ram, corsair for psu, etc...

Well one thing I dislike is the thermal compound. Why get Tuniq? You shoulda grabbed a OCZ freeze.

Spend $30 more for the coolermaster 932.. You will NOT be sorry!Full tower and real awesome airflow. I do not think anyone has better air flow in a case!

THESE GRAPHICS CARDS ARE LARGE NOWADAYS AND A FULL TOWER IS WHAT YA NEED.
