Default **FINAL BUILD** Take a look before I order!

I'm actually going to do it today, and I just want to make sure this build was compatible and see if you guys had any suggestions.

One issue was the mobo and memory, since one is 1.8v and one is 2.1v I wasn't sure if this would be a problem. Anyhow here it is, any input would be greatly appreciated!

Also, do I need to buy any other accessories, like heat sinks and such?

Thanks in advance!

If you want to overclock the CPU and RAM its a good diea to buy an after market heatsink such as:
TT Big Typhoon
Zalman 7500
Scythe Ninja
XP-90
XP-120

And extra fan or two on the RAM would also help.

Everything looks okish. Someone will probably reccomend different RAM.

Thanks for the response, I'm going to hold off on OCing at first, so I'll wait on the heatsink. Also, the case has 5 fans, including a 250mm side fan, the air circulation will be excellent.

What is wrong with my RAM?

Ok, I am debating upgrading to a 8800GTX, scrapping the Raptor and just getting 1 Seagate Barracuda 320GB HD instead, the whole system would run me about $2,200 before tax.

It would only be like $100 less than my original build, but I'd get a better performing card.

Unless you live in California their in no tax. What I would do is keep the rapter and not go for the gtx.

Ditch the Raptor and get the GTX. Good luck.
