Good luck with that OCZ RAM... not the most reliable manufacturer out there.

I've always used OCZ RAM and will continue to use OCZ RAM until it fails.

Is that RAM the stuff they had on sale for 49.99 at NCIX? I myself have never had problems with OCZ RAM either. I perosnally would've went with the 600T out of your choices. And for your 5870, how much did you pick that up for? Why not go with 6870 instead?

Yeah it was the OCZ RAM for $49.99. I chose the 5870 because it was on sale for like $269 with MIR or something. Better performance than 6870.

True, $270 is decent for the performance gain over the 6870 which is around ~$250, but that's after MIR and I hate MIR's. I guess you're waiting on the case...

Yeah case is on a plane/truck as we speak. This is the first time NCIX has delayed my order for unknown reasons, so I thought I would test all the components before placing them inside the case. The stock cooler does wonders for this ;).

Windows 7 has been installed :).

Nice build! My OCZ memory is still rockin' like a champ, so I have full confidence in your memory. Great motherboard choice too, those Asus P55's have the perfect feature-set in my opinion.

My only complaint is that there was no picture of Igor flipping the switch before the caption "IT'S ALIVEEEEEEEEEE". How could you!?
