Kool system. But, like Jolancer said, don't get Maxtor HDs. Western Digital and Seagate are what you want. Out of the two, WD is cheaper, but Seagate seems like it performs better, but that's just my opinion. Just forget about a Maxtor.

Wow I did just about the same system, but instead I ordered 2x512 crucial twinx ddrs. And I ordered two of the 74 raptors. Along with a gigabyte board instead of the asus. Only put me in $1600. And thats with getting doom3 along with the video card.

Did you buy EVERYTHING from newegg?
