if u want already overclocked GPU's go with XFX's they are usually easier to overclock (i think they are volt-modded?) and usually cheaper than the big dawgs: eVGA and BFG and anyone else i forgot

I have an extra tb because my media server originally was on my gaming rig but then as I saw that there was such a large demand I converted my server as It had already paid itself off and my gaming rig plus an extra grand or two in effort and time costs through monthly rent fees. So moved the media on to the 6.75tb server and expanded it with a intranet website interface. the 1tb is now used for processing of uploads and dvd's it is actually only 40% full atm.

That htpc is cool and I was extremely tempted by it but the touchscreen is fairly useless and I don't think it looks like htpc I believe htpc's should look like either a computer or a piece of hifi equipment not a mushie mess between the two
