4gb 2x2gb Patriot DDR-800
Seagate 320GB 7200
and the massive cooler master 830 case with 1000w combo
nice specs you got there

may i recommend you dont get the 8800 gts 640 not much of an improvement for the price diff of 8800 gts 320 you only get 1-2fps improvent (i beleive may be a bit more but not many) and for your case I recommend you dont get the stacker 830 with the psu just buy one seperatly with the case seperately
if your not going to sli i wouldnt recommend the 680i mobo but aside from that nice build

690 won't fit the card.

also, if you want to spend that kind of money on a case. i'd look into the silverstone TJ-07 or the Lian Li G70B

they are much better cases for the money.

Right now Iam looking at all the cases you guys mentioned... The cm 830 is nice but i like the looks of the tj 09 better... they say the tj 09 is a mid tower but in reality its a full tower... just look at the dimensions
