Default Can you Improve this build?

This is my future setup,


Motherboard~http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813135203

Cpu~http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103562

RAM~http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145450

CASE~http://www.xoxide.com/chieftec5.html

PSU~http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817167012

DVD Drive~ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827135132

HDD~http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822144417


Gona cost me around 900 i think, the last time i checked but that was a month ago and prices have droped.

What can you do to improve this setup. without increasing price too much be kind to me I was thinking of going Opteron 165 instead of the 3800+ X2.

I am OC'in!

I would not recommend an ECS motherboard at all.

Get Abit/DFI/Giga-Byte/MSI/Asus(if you must)

You've made good choices all around but I'd rather see your mobo be a ASUS, Foxcon, or DFI.

Yea, i was thinkin of going with ECS because it was 100$ cheaper and i've only heard good things of it... I would rather go with DFI anyday, but it was the cost. Is it really worth the extra 100$?
