Hello guys, as you could see i am new to this website. Just wanted say that you guys have a great community here, helping each other out

I am building a new beast for my brother. He is crazy he wants the best stuff in there and i am not sure where to start. I am not even sure he’ll go with all the stuff that I picked but as for top of the line PC, planning on going with Intel Core i7 Extreme 965 Quad Core Processor or should I go with Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9770 Quad Core Processor LGA775. What do you guys think? which one is more stable??

MOBO: If I am going with QX9770, the mobo will be Asus Rampage Extreme
For the i7 Extreme 965 since tiger direct only has Asus P6T-Deluxe Motherboard or EVGA X58 SLI Motherboard Which one guys……helpppp

Memory: DDR3 not sure which one to go for….help please…….

PSU: going with Ultra X3 ULT40070 1600-Watt Power Supply

Video Card: I am going with 2x EVGA GeForce GTX 280 Video Card SSC Edition…….. Planning on going with liquid cooling system. I am not too familiar with liquid cooling L but I want to do liquid cooling on all the cards. Help…. can I do it with the rad that comes with the case.
