Hello guys this is my first post here so go easy on me please!
Alright here are the specs, but first off let me say this. I'm building my rig piece by piece...so I could assemble everything on the 18th of next month , 2 days before Supreme Commander comes out lol. Anyway i'm going for my Computer Science Major here in San Diego So wish me the best of luck there! Any who i'm not only building this for gaming but also to ..."scratch' the surface of the computer world I think by building this pc I will have a better grasp of Computers in General.

Now that you know what I'm going ot buy in the enxt few weeks, do you have any suggestions for me? Are their any conflicts in products? Umm...am I overkilling here? Lol... Let me say this here this is going ot be my etertainment center aswell for my room. I live in a Condo with my stupendously rich cousin who spends his money on XPS and has a crazy fast t2+ connection lol. But besides him I like to keep in my room when i'm actually at home. Well I appreciate any input!
Also How will the Video Card and television/Monitor work together?
Edit: Almost forgot! The case comes with a Water Cooler system....I ASSUME it's good since all the reviews on new egg are pretty good. Would heat be an issue here ...or should I get something more aggressive? Thanks once more.!
