Are you actually buying the VIP membership? It's free with 500 points. And if you want a chance at better deals, you might want to look at PP instead of VIP if your not using points to get it.

Other then that, I don't see much I would change, and I can't wait to see the benchies on it! That and I hate you for getting that case...it's so sexy looking! :D

My System Specs

Default

I have a couple of suggestions:

no need for pre-assembly.
I would wait as long as possible for the new breed of CPUs, or go for the QX9650. With a rig like yours, the Q6600 is the bottleneck.
change the ram for the Dominators
change the PSU for a modular version, like this one: NCIX.com - Buy Silverstone Strider ST1000 1000W Modular Power Supply ATX 20/24PIN 135MM Fan High Efficiency Black - SST-ST1000 In Canada. or this one: NCIX.com - Buy Enermax Galaxy Dxx 850W Power Supply ATX V2.0 EPS12V SLI RoHS 24PIN 135MM Fan Modular 4PCI-E - EGX850EWL In Canada..

for the wc system:

fans, fans, fans
7/16" or 1/2" tubing
NB block, GPU blocks
1/2" clamps - I hate worm gear clamps and tie-wraps on tubing.
use Swiftech's liquid solution. It's good enough.

Try to find a deal for free (or 9.99$) ground shipping - that MM case will cost a bundle in shipping.

edit: i dont know what your reffering to when you talk about points and that the VIP with 500 points!

edit: Thanks, I'll be sure to post pics and 3dmark results for you guys to see.

edit:That's the plan,wait for the new CPU's to come out and then get one.
change the ram for the Dominators
edit:I planned on having 4 Gb.Would 2 Gb of the Dominator(listed in previous posts) be better than the 4Gb of OCZ?
change the PSU for a modular version, like this one: NCIX.com - Buy Silverstone Strider ST1000 1000W Modular Power Supply ATX 20/24PIN 135MM Fan High Efficiency Black - SST-ST1000 In Canada. or this one: NCIX.com - Buy Enermax Galaxy Dxx 850W Power Supply ATX V2.0 EPS12V SLI RoHS 24PIN 135MM Fan Modular 4PCI-E - EGX850EWL In Canada..

I've changed the PSU,it was a mistake a made when i update the list the last time,here's the final PSU unit is: Thermaltake Toughpower 1000W ATX12V V2.2 20/24PIN CrossFire Power Supply 140MM Active PFC Modular

for the wc system:

fans, fans, fans(added)
7/16" or 1/2" tubing(added)
NB block, GPU blocks(added)
1/2" clamps - I hate worm gear clamps and tie-wraps on tubing.edit:(added---i thought worm drive were a better fit but i dont know shit,remember)
use Swiftech's liquid solution. It's good enough.(added---Is it non-conductive like the other product is?

Try to find a deal for free (or 9.99$) ground shipping - that MM case will cost a bundle in shipping.
How can i find a deal at 9.99$ for that case to be shipped at my house in Saguenay?
Is there a company out there that would ship such a beast for 10$ at my house?

Thanks for all the input guys,i'm getting there real fast and you guys are making it happen for me.

Eric

Depending on which component you choose at ncix, some offer a special rate for ground delivery across Canada - 9.99$ or even free ground shipping.
