    looks good, make sure you get a nice power supply. To run all that your gonna need some serious power.

    Corsair makes a nice 1000Watt Modular power supply. I would get a modular one only cause you will have a pretty full case ad with modular it is much easier to manage the cable.

    Tho for less money you can get a 3.0Ghz or more Dual Core. I dont know what your plan is for this, but most programs are not optimized to use Quad Core CPU's. The E8400 or E8500 are worth a look.

    whoa man, there is much electricity right there, make sure you get a good power supply, and make sure you don't burn any things in your PC!

    I have a decent 500watt to start. kinda budgetting this one. I plan on running hackintosh at least on one of my 6 six hdds.. which is why i need the sata/pata card

    3 pata 3 satas.. 2 laptop drives gonna raid 0 them there exactly the same. im on one now on my bros computer. hehe
    but once i start piling things on ill prolly grab a nice 750-1000watt modular of course. i hate the mess of cables i have now. its a pain. im just throwing everything in my mid tower case. i measured everything will fit fine. Yes even the GTX =] i have about half an inch to spare after power cables.

    I was thinking of dual core but id rather be future proof. I plan on light gaming for the time being, mainly watching HD movies and such. Im a mutimedia/college guy, so this will do me fine for my multitasking, running itunes, movies, coding, programing, and whatever else im doing, aim is constantly on as if firefox.
    When i take the plunge to the GTX then ill step it up, i just need an upgrade from my max res of 1280x1024 when my montior pushes 1920x1080. i hate not using the full potential which is why i stole my bros for the night. Thanks for the comments guys/gals!

    But you think the dual core would suit me better?
