Default Re: New Computer Build (thoughts)?

There is no need for 12Gb of ram, you could settle for something like this instead:
Newegg.com - OCZ Platinum 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

This is a better cooler for the i7:
Newegg.com - XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

Newegg.com - XIGMATEK ACK-I7361 CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

I'd spend a little extra on the video card and get either a GTX 260 core 216, which can overclock to 280 speeds, or go for a GTX 285.
