I don't really know sound cards that well. Others here do, though.

PSU
whats the difference between that at this? Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply - Power Supplies I need to learn these things so im not so helpless

MOBO
anything about this mobo I should pay particular attention to? Selecting a mobo is prolly my biggest weakness.

RAM
whats the difference between those and these?
Newegg.com - G.SKILL 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9T-6GBNQ - Desktop Memory

THING ^_~
whats this used for?

HDD
wow a 1TB HDD huh? I wouldnt even know what to do with that my current comps only got 160gb total & im fine... ^_^ but hey... this is my fun new toy... Ill think about it ^_^

GPU
are you saying to just get one of these rather than 2 tiny-bit-smaller cards?

OPTICAL DRIVE
lol, thats the same optical drive I put in my wish list ^_^

SOUND CARD
here's where I get with narrowing down the sound card search before I'm not quite sure where to go yet.
Newegg.com - Computer Hardware,Input Devices,Sound Cards,Creative Labs,7.1

PSU:
$5, mainly. The Antec has four 12V rails @ 25A, while the Corsair lists one @ 60A.

Mobo:
It supports SLI and CrossfireX (three PCI-E slots), plenty of SATA ports. All current i7 boards use the x58 chipset.

RAM:
$6. 8-8-8-24 timing vs 9-9--9-24 (lower is better). One looks cooler.

Thing:
Used to mount the cooler, as the LGA 1366 is not native to most coolers on the market.

HDD:
More is better. The Black series are very fast and great for OS drives. The Green is more power efficient and better for files.

GPU:
A single card solution is always better than a multi-card one whenever possible. With the 5870 you could always add another one or two down the road, or mix and match another ATI card(that is possible now). The 5870 is the best out for now. The 295 is a touch faster, but more expensive and last gen.

Optical:
Great minds thing alike.

Sound Card:
I defer to those who know what they are talking about.

You have the core contact retention bracket but no core contact Rest looks good

I'd still recommend the corsair PSU over the Antec, a single rail just means one less thing to worry about. And it comes in a nice felt bag.

And holy crap microsoft office 07 is $430?... Could try using Open Office and save a butload of money. I actually prefer it to office 07, less symbols, more basic sorta, easier to use IMO.

Onboard audio is probably fine too, sound card seems kind overpriced but its your call. I personally can't tell the difference between onboard and a card, though my friend can. All depends on your hearing I guess.

oh, that's just something I added to give me a more accurate appearance of a final price cuz I still need to think about things like: all the shipping, a new keyboard, mouse, a case and im prolly going to need a new KVM switch. etc...
as for Office 2007, I can get it from work for less than $100 and I am also getting Adobe CS4 for only $10 from where I work as well.

I have some really nice speakers and onboard sound just doesn't work for me.

I may still go back, I have a few things I really need to think about. I honestly had no idea i'd rack the bill so high, so fast.

This Core Contact:
Newegg.com - Sunbeam CR-CCTF 120 mm Core-Contact Freezer CPU Cooler W/TX-2 - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

Antec and Corsair are both good PSUs. Multiple rails are a good thing, though. And I am glad you can get Office for less. Mine was a gift from a very good, very connected friend.
