To be honest, ur setup is fine. I would change a few things, nothing that hasnt alreayd been said though.

1. I would get a cheaper case, cuz i dont like that one and i personally cant just $120 on a case (unless its Lian Li)
2. Save ur money and wait, get a DFI crossfire board and an X900 series card, as crossfire is more effective than SLI.
3. The money ur putting down on the WD raptor is unecessary. nobody really needs a 10,000 RPM HD.

Again, the Crossfire board and the X900 (u could add another in the future) are more expensive, but it might be worth it to save money. And if u are planning to run SLI/Crossfire, I would want at least a 520 watt PSU.

Thanks guys. Trotter...I like that first case a lot. The case is probably my most flexible component. I'm sure I won't actually pick one until I'm ready to buy my parts. I probably will ditch the raptors then....that would save some dough. I might just go w/ the Ultra-D and ditch SLI.

Anymore suggestions....bring 'em on
