Looks good but ditch the e6700, because the extra $200 is not worth the .2 faster then the e6600. So just save yourself $200 and get the e6600. It can easily overclock pass the e6700.

That sounds like a pretty good computer. Do you think the hard drive space will be enough? You can never have enough hard drive space

Looks like a sweet setup. ANd although i agree with b1gapl, since this is your first build you might not want to try oc'ing just yet. Besides that, no offense but that case is ugly as ****. HAHA.

The case isn't too bad, but it does look a bit like a hairdryer...
