Total for everything I have to buy is $1,219.93 and then $36.50 for shipping to bring it to $1,256.43. That sounds pretty good.

Forgot my Zalman CNPS9900 for the HS&F. Yikes....those are kind of pricey. I think my CNPS9700 was like $45 when I got it. Is there a better cooler for cheaper for the Core i7?


Alright, just getting you guys and update here,.....

Ended up ordering an Antec Twelve Hundred, the EVGA GTX 260 Core 216 to SLI with my GTX 260 Core 192, and I went with this EVGA mobo.....

Newegg.com - EVGA E758-TR 3-Way SLI (x16/x16/x8) LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

Also stuck with the 6 GB of the OCZ Platinum RAM, and I got two of the 1 TB WD Caviar Black HDDs.

Hope she turns out good. We'll see. My current computer was running every game just fine, but the thread in the New PC and Tech forum about Intel trying to get rid of the Core i7 920 scared me into ordering this now.
