    OK. I have decided on all parts for my new build. I couldn't help myself and decided to water cool again but not the GFx cards at the moment.

    Lian Li PC-A10B Case Black
    ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 Motherboard
    Corsair TX-850 850W Power Supply
    Intel Core i7 920
    OCZ Core Series V2 SATA II 2.5" SSD 60GB
    Samsung 500GB 7200rpm SATA II HD502IJ
    Corsair TR3X6G1600C8D 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3
    Sony AD7200S0B SATA DVDRW OEM
    XFX nVidia Geforce GTX275 896mb PCI Express Graphics Card (will buy another for SLI later)

    COOLING:
    Swiftech Apogee GTZ CPU Waterblock
    Swiftech Apogee-GTZ-CI7 1366 Bracket
    Swiftech MCP655-B 12V Pump
    Swiftech MCR220-QP Radiator
    Swiftech MCRES Micro Rev2 Reservoir

    So there it is. I picked the case for plenty of room and also the subdued style, not too flashy. This build should last me for quite awhile, any comments let me know. I have already ordered the GFX card and will order the remainder of components this week.

    nice selection!:D I would try and get a 295 then SLi that later, but if you don't really need it, then I say it's a pretty capable rig...

    I would not get that SSD go with OCZ's new vertex series. It has a new controller that is not prone to hanging or pausing all the time. Google some reviews and you'll see what I mean.

    Not really, the new vertex they decided to go with a korean manufacture for the controller and the reviews I've seen are a huge step up over the core series. The only thing that was mentioned is that the firm ware should be up dated first thing. Let me see if I can find that specific review I was looking at last night.

    I like the way you selected :) especially the GFX card and Mobo from XFX and ASUS respectively. But I too suggest you to go with GTX 295 rather than GTX 275 SLI later.

    I have considered it but regarding the price point I have decided to go with the 275 rather than the 295. I can buy 2ea x GTX275's for the same price of 1ea x 295. I'm not after ground breaking performance although I do want a very capable machine and 2ea x 275 in SLI should give me that. Thanks for your suggestions though.
