Default I bought my stuff today

-ThermalTake Armor case
-MSI 8800GTX
-G.Skill 2GB DDR2-800 (the black ones)
-Gigabyte P35 DS3R
-Corsair 520HX Power Supply
-(duo or quad core will be bought on 22nd)
-Arctic Cooling 7 Pro Heatsink
-Arctic Silver 5

-DVD burner/HDD already have


Hopefully this all fits, especially that 8800gtx which is probably too long.

Nice set up i think that you have chosen to do the right thing to buy all of the other parts now rather than around July 22nd, beacuse i think that shops will put up the prices due to the nubers of people who will want to buy computers around that time.

Out of interest, what HDD/DVD do you have?

G.Skill is 130.00 which is ridiculous considering that it was 105 a while back.

I have two WD 160GB 7200rpm 8MB cache hard drives which I will RAID0 and this CD/DVD burner: Newegg.com - LG Black 18X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 8X DVD+R DL 18X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache IDE Lightscribe DVD Burner - OEM

That is going to be sweet. Bummer you have to sit around and wait for the 22nd when you have all the parts right now

Considering they were 250 when I purchased my ram at Christmas 130 is a steal....
