Case: Pending.. freinds request. Built in Liquid cooling..maby..
Cooling: Any suggestions?

Cooling is a debateable subject. I am sure this PC will create a lot of heat. I am considering water cooling internal or external, but.. I am unsure that my freind will be ontop of it. Check the water levels and change the liquid every 6 months and such. Maby I should just fill the case with hella fans. Any suggestions?

go for water cooling it will be your friends fault if he does take care of it. If not load that baby up with fans.

Your getting the 6800 vanilla??? Get at least a 6800GT! Also, I see that this is going to be a very high end system, so I would advise you to get the 3700+ (or 4000+) San Diego CPU, not the Venice. That is a very good optical drive, I have the same one. That is also a very good PSU, I have the 520W version of it. For the case, might I suggest a Lian Li PC-65B? Don't get that motherboard, get a DFI Lanparty nF4 SLI-DR. For the hard drives, I would get 2x SATA2 HITACHI Deskstar T7K250's and run them in RAID 0. Now that would be a screamin' rig.
