    Ok, so I just ordered the following:
    Intel Core i7-920
    Asus P6T Deluxe
    6GB G.Skill DDR3 PC3-10666
    and a Coolermaster HAF 932

    I will get some pics when I get the stuff in.

    Should be good along with the X2 gtx 285s:D

    You should do a comparison result between your older rig and the new one.

    Should be a pretty beefy build, I use the P6T Deluxe Palm OC Edition and it's pretty rockin. Best memory handling board out there IMO, I've been through MSI, and Giga boards on X58 and the P6T is the only one that every kit of ram I've tried was Plug and Play.

    Ocing I got 4.4 on the 965, and it drives my 285's pretty darn good.

    It's a little light for my 295's but I don't think there's anything out there that is capable of driving them without bottlenecking.

    If you use it make sure you update to the latest Palm OC software cause the original usually causes a system hang.

    It's a standard ATX board, just the case is freakin huge lol, I didn't think it was going to be that big :roll:. I will get the rest sorted out tomorrow and get the rest of the pics up after that.

    Cheers for the comments guys.

    If any1 has any comments to help the build at this stage please feel free to post :toast:
