Im planning to do a build quite soon. All I really want to do is build an up-to-date system using quality components. Im prepared to spend a little bit... but also do not want to go overboard either.
I would like your opinion, input, crits... anything that will contribute to building a system of quality up to date parts.
So far this is my selection:
Gigabyte EP45T-Extreme $320 (I've also been eyeing the X48T-DQ6, although im not sure the pros/cons so any input between these two boards would be appreciated)
Intel Q9550 $385
Intel® Core™2 Quad Processor Q9550 - SLAWQ
G.Skill 2X 4G Kit DDR3 1333 $570
Asus GTX280 TOP $566
Pioneer 216 $34
Coolermaster RealPower Pro 1000W $299
WD Sata "AV Drive" 750G $133
WD Sata 1TB $165
Thermaltake Full Xaser VI $279
Xaser VI VG4000SWA
Total - $2751
