My System Specs

Default Nehalem Build

Hey all, since the deals for Nehalem are over on Tuesday, I think I'm going to take the plunge now, instead of what I originally planned for.
Anyways, heres what I got:
Samsung Spinpoint F1 Series HD642JJ 640GB SATA2 7200RPM 16MB 3.5IN Hard Drive OEM 3YR MFR Warranty $69.99

EVGA E-GEFORCE GTX 260 Core 216 576MHZ 896MB 1.99GHZ GDDR3 PCI-E Dual DVI-I HDCP HDTV Out *IR-$71* $308.88

Corsair TX750W 750W ATX 12V 60A 24PIN ATX Power Supply Active PFC 120MM Fan $105.86

Scythe Kaze Master 5.25IN Bay Fan Controller Backlit VFD Display Fan Temp Black $39.78

Scythe Kaze Master 3.5IN Bay Fan Controller Backlit VFD Display Fan Temp Black $31.55

Logisys CLK12BL2 Dual Blue Cold Cathode Kit 12IN 3.0MM $6.83

NCIX Gaming Deal ASUS P6T Deluxe Motherboard Intel Core I7 920 CPU 699.99

G.SKILL F3-10666CL9T-3GBNQ 3GB DDR3 3X1GB DDR3-1333 CL 9-9-9-24 Triple Channel Memory Kit 98.33

Samsung SH-S223Q/BEBN Black DVD+RW 22X8X16 DVD-RW 22X6X16 DL16X/12X Lightscribe DVD Writer SATA OEM 28.99

All the prices are the PMed prices. The total is: $1,390.20

All this will be going into an MM H2GO case.

Thoughts, opinions, rants, etc?

EDIT: Oh yeah, I forgot about a HSF.. Any recommendations?

Personally I would replace Samsung hd with Seagate or WD and get more RAM if you are going with Vista. (but u may as well wait a little until there is more variety of tri-channel RAM available.) Is your case big enough for GTX 260? For HSF there is not much choice right now for LGA1366, so u may as well wait until new stuff rolls in and dont OC, or go with new TR or Noctua with 1366 Bracket.). Otherwise looks good.

I got similar build myself.

Antec 1200 + Corsair CMPSU-620HX 620W - $335
Intel Core i7 920 + ASUS P6T X58 Deluxe - $699.99
EVGA GTX 260 Core 216 - $308
Western Digital Velociraptor WD1500HLFS 150GB - $209.00
G.SKILL F3-10666CL9T-3GBNQ 3GB - $98.33
Samsung SH-S223F DVD Writer - $27.98
Noctua NH-U9B Heatsink + Noctua MT-1366 LGA1366 Mounting Conversion Kit - $47.29

Total: $1725.59 (with taxes $1811.87)
