I'm just looking for some general advice on the components I'm choosing and hopefully someone could warn me if I've been a complete idiot. Now normally I like using Newegg because their customer support is outstanding, but sadly this is getting shipped to California which would mean a 8.75% sales tax on everything
, so I'm trying my best to find the parts elsewhere. Anyway, I'm open to comments, suggestions, etc.
