He is using his old cd drives, speakers and will be using onboard sound.

All input and criticism is welcome. The main point is to double check that everything is compatible.

It's a good build with the exception of that i'd much rather have a P5B-Deluxe over a bug ridden 680i Mobo any day. Not to mention they are cheaper. That ram should be good but since they are promos hard to tell how good they will run.

EDIT: I dont like the monitor since its 8ms and not widescreen and still expensive here is a better one for cheaper

Hanns-G are very good monitors and that one is 5ms, widescreen, an awesome montor in general in terms of color, and alot cheaper with the instant sale.

E6300 w/ Arctic Freezer Pro 7 @ 3.6ghz 1.4Vcore
Antec 900 Case
EVGA 750i FTW Mobo
4x1GB of G.skill DDR2-800
2 8800GT in SLI
22" Samsung Syncmaster
1 250GB WD and 1 Seagate 7200.10 in RAID 0
Corsair 520HX 3DMark06 Score: 13900
