Arrow What do you say about my rig I'm going to buy

I'm working on new computer because this one is getting outdated.

ASUS Maximus Formula 215€
Q6600 G0-Stepping 235€
Tuniq tower 120 55€
CORSAIR XMS2-6400 2X1GB 67€
Thermaltake Armor VA8003BWS 189€
8800 G92-GTS 512mb About 300€
Corsair HX620W 139€
Samsung Spinpoint T166 500gb 93€
Samsung S203B 30€

So what do you say about this rig? I'm not really sure about Thermaltake Armor, should I change it to another? This package cost about 1370€ for me including postages.

Wow nice system. Make sure that the XMS 2 is the CAS 4 version (or alternatively choose G-Skill HZ, Crucial Ballistix, Cellshock) and its fine. I think that the armor is ugly. If you dont mind cutting a hole in the mobo tray to help with wiring then I would go with the Antec 900.

that setup looks great, i have almost the exact same build, but i have a coolermaster stacker 830 and crucial ballistix RAm instead.

Only thing you might consider if you want more speed, is getting a seagate 7200.11 drive. Its faster and has 32MB cache.

As well, we usually recomend getting Crucial ballistix over corsair ram because its cheaper and can overclock better.

I could buy Coolermaster Stacker 831, it costs 20€ more than Armor, Vaanish do you mean G.Skill 1GB DDR2-800 F2-6400PHU1-1GBHZ 4-4-4-12 ? It will take a moment till I can fill Coolermaster Stacker's fan slots, gonna be out of money
