Hey everyone... well after tears, sweats, good and bad days, I could finally get myself to acquire a decent build for myself, and I would really appreciate any imput on it, anything I could improve, get rid off or any particular comment.

So here's my build:

Mobo: EVGA X58 Sli

RAM: 6 GB Triple Channel Super Talent Chrome Series (CL 9-9-9-24)
GPU: 2x Sli Nvidia EVGA 250 GTS 1024 DDR3 (won't upgrade until series 3 comes out)
PSU: Cooler Master True Power Pro 850 W (6 12v Rails)
Hard Drive: 2 x 320GB Western Digital Caviar Blue SATA 2 (RAID 0)
Extra Storage: 1.5 TB Western Digital Caviar Black SATA 3
Optical Drive: LiteOn 64x Lighstribe DVD Writer
Monitor: LG Flatron 2353 Full HD 24"
Mouse: Microsoft SideWinder

Any input would be hugely appreciated.

Default Re: Finally

I don't know much but I would suggest a different video card. If you're going to spend all that on an i7, a gts 250 is kind of counter productive. If you did stay with the 250, I don't think you'll need such a large power supply either. I'd personally swap out the ms mouse for a razer mouse also. I'd also switch the 2 x 320 gb hd's for some sort of ssd or maybe a velociraptor. Course its hard to say what to get without knowing what exactly you will use all this for.
