Damn, nice deal

As far as the gfx card, I think either would be good. If the BFG is competive on price, it is hard to pass up that lifetime warranty and I have had good OC sucess on mine. If it is a significant price difference, the eVGA should be great. I know they produced a solid card with the 6xxx series any ways.

Everything looks excellent!

For the vid card, it doesnt really matter. I would go with whatever you can find for cheaper. Both of them will surpass any games requirements. Even when future games are able to stress the vid card, you wont be able to notice a difference between the performance on either.

Get another hard drive if possible in addition to the raptor
Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 ST380817AS 80GB 7200 RPM Serial ATA150 Hard Drive-62

Don't forget arctic silver 5 thermal compound or windows if needed. Looks good.

Id get the Ennermax PSU.

Id go with this burner:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827152047

As for VGA, id go with eVGA cuz of their customer/tech service/support, and their great RMA policies.

Sick build, man!

I'd get the cheaper one. they're completely comparable! Both are great brands. Don't forget the thermal paste and OS!
