1. I would wait for more dx10 video cards.

2. You might want to look into a different brand of ram. OCZ, G.Skill. Corsair is overpriced for high end ram.

3. You need a power supply. OCZ makes good ones. Fortran source too. Check them out.

Haha, my bad didnt see it. If you already ordered, then yea its pretty much straight forward to setup. Read through motherboard instruction manual, it will run you through most of the process.

Looks like a pretty nice setup. The case looks like it might be a pain to deal with but everything else looks cool.
