Whats your budget???

You could add stuff like raptor hard drive or raid some hard drives. Or you go to a 7950gx2 or dual x1900xtx.

What you have is pretty good though.

Well, I don't really have a budget. The thing is that I would have to save money for a longer period of time. I really didn't want to upgrade my gpu until directx 10 cards come out. when they come out can I have a directx 10 and a direct x 9 card running crossfire. Even though they would be different series. Also how expensive is a raptor harddrive. I was planningon doing something like that latter in time. Will is increase performance. To give you an exsample of what I will be doing with the pc. This pc will be used for just about anything, It will be used for gameing, video editing, mapping HL2 and uing xna stios. Photoshop will be another thing. So what should I do to maximize performance.

I plan to get a different case in about a year. I really powerful case. In turms of great airflow, so I don't what to spend all that money on a fan but I will still look into it.

I don't know if you could use a dx10 and dx9 card together. If you could it would most likely mean you can only run them in dx9. Plus the faster card would only run at the speed of the slower card unless they changed that recently.

If you plan on upgrading your vid card to dx10 you should probably just stick with what you got selected for now.

Raptor HD would improve performance in any thing that accesses the HD a lot. So everything should load faster which would help in video editing. You could just raid some slower HD's and get the same performance though.

If it helps any, that's real close to the build that I'm working on. I think most ppl will agree that it's a build of greatness

My greatest source of anxiety has been picking a motherboard. The Infinity seems to have a good balance of features, overclockabilty (if you're doing that. i'd like to try it at some point), and price. I also considered an Asus (P5B deluxe), but that was $50 more and didn't seem to rate as well on the o/c. Am I totally off here??

I'm really interested in how it works out for you. Good luck.
