Default Final Specs before BUYING sunday....

Buying the parts & building on Sunday/Monday. Here's the list, opinions, thoughts, changes, all welcome and appreciated. As well as a few questions at the bottom.

-Samsung DVDRW
-Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3R
-E6750 2.66Ghz 4MB 1333FSB
-XFX 8800GTS 320MB GRAW bundle HDCP
-Mushkin HP2-6400 2x1GB CAS 4-5-4-11
-Corsair HX 620W
-Seagate 7200rpm 320GB
-CoolerMaster Centurion 5
-Samsung 22" 226BW
Final Cost: $1675 WITH TAX.

Couple Questions...
1) Will the case I have chosen fit all the parts without modding the case?
2) The RAM I have chosen states it runs at 2.1-2.2V, and I've heard that the mobo I have chosen defaults at 1.8V default and wont run the RAM I have chosen or something like that...someone explain this situation to me?
3) And of coarse overall opinions on my build?

a1: Case will fit parts.
a2: Ram will work on that mobo. Some intel mobos needs JEDEC ram.
a3: build is great

A1: Yes, any Mid-Tower will fit your parts.
A2: RAM, it'll work with the motherboard. Where are you ordering these sticks from?
A3: It's great for gaming and daily computing.

Crucial seem overpriced in Canada unless you can suggest somewhere?

I figured for a 8800gts 320mb...quad core is at a different level, and it would seem more logical for me to upgrade the CPU and GPU at the same time in a few years.

Does this mobo need the "JEDEC" type ram?

I'm locally picking up the ram at CanadaComputers.com

No, that motherboard can handle regular ram, none of that JEDEC ram.

Remember that he lives in Canada.. prices and availability there are totally different the here.

Great build, ram will work and the 8800gts should fit in the case.
