Like others have said, it seems like a solid build, but it would be a good idea to order at NCIX since you can price match all the items and you can benefit from their surprise special deals or extreme deal of the day.
Also, maybe I would change the ram for
some cheaper RAM
, its a bit slower and has a slower CAS, but I doubt you would notice it specially since you do not seem to be an overclocker.
Then, maybe I'd install windows 7 RC and wait until it comes out in October (actually buy it a few months later), you've got until March 2010 (or was it May ?).
Is there any reason why you did not consider the Caviar Black ?
Getting a modular PSU would surely be a good idea too.
My System Specs
Windows 7 Ultimate 64
