    Looks like a nice system. Intel generally doesn't make the best mb's from what I've heard, I didn't even know they had an x48 from just them, but it should be a nice rig indeed. Congrats. :toast:

    Everything in that rig is great...except the motherboard. Unless you have no intention of OC'ing.

    I love your sistem :) Its really a bang for the buck. The mb i think its ok. I have a friend who has it and its verry good mb. I suggest a hard disk velociraptor WD to boost a little data transfer.

    Are you saying Gigabyte is bad? I guess you don't build many new computers?:confused:

    I have heard that the Extreme Audio X-Fi wasn't as powerful as the other X-Fi's and people were saying it used the same hardware as a Audigy 2 ZS.....

    Thats just a warning because I don't know for sure that its true. Maybe somebody else can verify if I am right or wrong on this. :confused:

    I think it's a great value system.
    Just need to get a sound card.
    X-fi extreme gamer or Auzentech Xplosion will do the trick nice and reasonable cost.
    Auzentech uses the same core as Xfi BTW.
    Just a few little extras with the Xplosion.
    Will run future games well even at stock.
