looks good.. get the 8800gt istead of those other 2 u mentioned... The Ballistix Tracer is the same thing as the Ballistix except with the LED's which cause the price jack-up.. if ur ok with that.. go ahead with them.. just an FYI

the Blue NQ's won't overclock as well as the Ballistix because they don't have D9 Micron chips..

Get the HZs if your going with G.Skill, they will overclock alot better than the HKs.

those are your reasons, I asked the OP. Obviously money isn't a huge part of it as the parts he chose aren't budget components.

They're the reasons that I thought were most likely to be held by the OP.

Which doesn't necessarily mean other people can't answer it.

Maybe the reason he's going cheap on the CPU is because he's getting other parts which are expensive.
