I hadn't really looked at the Maximus Formula....but thats I nice recommendation. I heard they were overrated. Maybe not....I will have to check.

For the case I was planning on the CM Stacker 830 Evolution. I hate the NZXT cases, I don't know why people like them. I've never had a problem with Antec or Cooler Master so i am sticking with them.

HDD the Seagate 7200.11 500 GB so we're are on track there.

PSU I was thinking the 750 Watt PC Power & Cooling.

I can wait til February for the 3870 X2....but is the Q9450 really not coming out until March? That sucks....
