I do not plan to overclock anytime soon, but I do plan to Crossfire two 4850's down the road and when I do I will prob look at overclocking the CPU to aroudn 3.6 on air. I also want to keep it under $850 bucks before tax and right now everything comes to $823.50
So without delay please drop a line with your opinion.

No operating system
Crap memory/not enough memory
Overkill on power supply
Would choose WD or 7200.11 over 7200.10
No aftermarket cooler (3.6 GHz on air probably won't go over so well w/ stock cooling)
