Hey guys, I haven't been around here since my last build over a year and a half ago. I still love this PC, but I figured a great excuse for me to get a new one is to give this to my girlfriend
I plan to overclock again and it looks like the i7's are great for it. The only things I won't need will be:
- Hard drives (I've got a WD 150GB Raptor & 750 + 250 GB HDD's for storage)
- Sound card (Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer)
- PSU * I'm not actually sure if I'll need one or not. I have a Silverstone 750W, it should be OK but let me know if you think otherwise.
I'm hoping to stay under $1,500; so, here is what I'm thinking so far:
ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 - $269.99

I'm open to suggestions on a good case that is sleek and will keep all of this fairly cool. I'd like it to be quiet, but quiet and cooling don't tend to mix. I know it's a personal choice but I'd still appreciate any suggestions.
Thanks for your help guys!
