    Looks good except for the hard drive! What's with the OC to 3.6? Are you buying the thing pre-assembled and already overclocked to that rate or are you just assuming that you'll be able to OC it to 3.6 once you get it?

      A 19" monitor with a 8800GTX? Ouch, what a waste. Also 1000W is a bit of an overkill (depending on how many hard drives you plan to get and if you get another 8800GTX).

      Also, I'd get a 680i motherboard, but that's just me. Nothing wrong with the P5W DH DELUXE though.

        Well it definitely has enough power! 1000W, wow! Sounds like a decent machine :)

          Ultra has announced their 2000W power supply. Geez.

          Razer's 'Death Adder' mouse has started shipping and according to the first reviews rates higher then the Copperhead so you might consider it.

                What's wrong with the Raptor? If I were you I would add a secondary larger hard drive. But only if you need the space.

                  Two 8800GTXs on a 19" monitor? Anything less then 1600X1200 with one, let alone two 8800GTXs is a shame. A SHAME!

                  Get an Apple 30" cinema HD monitor (2560X1600). Then everone will truley have e-penis envy.

                      Well good luck with your build, the high price you pay, and the electrical bill that follows in its wake.

                      The OC'ing, hard drive configuration, and the PSU is overkill just for gaming. Otherwise, it would make a very nice poweruse machine (CS2, multitabbed browser, music encoding, graphics rendering, etc.)

                      What case are you getting? Hope it's made of steel not some lightweight SECC rated alloy. Are you planning on putting in some 120mms along with a sound ampliflier so when you power on your system it would sound like a Concorde just flew past you?

                      Oh yes that would be cool...all the gamers in your neighborhood would be on their knees begging for your mercy as you beat them at EVERY multiplayer game out there (not to mention wow them with your infinitely powerful rig). *super sarcasm*

                      I envy you...hmm...could I buy that system off of you when you done building it? :D

                        You can also get a Killer NIC card and a PPU card for extra redundant components.

                          You're been building extreme PC's since you were 6 years old?

                            Considering the nature of what you put on your hard drives, I prefer going with manufacturers with a much higher MTBF than Western Digital. The drives might have great specs, but no other piece of hardware in your PC will cause you more grief than a poor quality drive.

                              well first off thx for the advice about my PSU, i think i might need it so thats why i got it. also i might get a 24 inch instead, but i dont know, but i mean otherwize than my PSU i dont think that their overkill, im going to need them to spray ultiamte pwnage all over all of youre faces in BF2142.

                              and PS. no Apophis, iv been building for 9 years, im 18
