    To me, that's the best build.

    I wouldn't say 10/10 only because you can build a faster comp.

    But that is simply a great blend of cost/performance going today.


    The 8800 nvidia cards are coming out, and the graphics part will likely change, but thats always happens every so many months.

    You could also use the new 965 chipset Gigabyte boards too.

    I'm going to say 8 - there are faster CPUs, and I don't know what brand of PSU that is.

    It's a really good set up. I never got why people have such huge Harddrives as their primary HD. I would instead have opted with a 150G raptor 10,000 rpm HD as a primary while using a 250HD as a secondary.

    Raptors cost alot for their capacity compared to other drives. Some people don't have money for a Rapter let alone a Raptor AND a storage drive.
    IMO, a Seagate 7200.10 320GB is a better choice than a 150GB Raptor.

    i have Raptor for main and 250 for storage and I wouldn't go any other way. Nice to be able to reformat when necessary and not worry about loosing stored info.

    Same here. I use a Raptor 73gb for my os, then a Raptor 150gb for backup, and I'm about to add a Seagate 10k 146gb scsi drive for my second backup.

    BTW, that Asus board should allow an overclock of that cpu to at least the 6800 level, if not a little bit more.

    It won't overclock like the Gigabyte board will, but the Asus is rock solid right out of the box.

    It's a nice computer. Only thing I would have done differently is buy a 7600GT and wait until the DX10 cards come out. And Like I said, Buy a Raptor for primary, and a 7200 RPM HD as secondary. Then, I would also have gotten the EVGA Nforce 680i motherboard instead of the P5N32 Premium because the 590 sli chips don't overclock nearly as well. Other than that.... NICE BUILD!

    For people who are going to argue the raptor set up... He could simply save money by getting the 7600GT and then investing it in a 74G raptor, then get another 250 Gig W.D. Caviar for 70 bucks. :)

    It's pretty much going to be my build, cept I'm going for the E6300 and ima overclock it. Same video card, 1gb of ram for now, and prolly a 250gb HD, though I'd want smaller since most of my files are on my file server.
