Agreed RJ.
You know though, the Scout is amazing to work in. I'd recommend that in a heart Beat.

I really like the mobo/proc deal. However, the mobo is not the p6t deluxe, just the p6t. What's the tangible difference?

Final Build:
gtx 275 SLI
i7 920
Western digital 1TB HDD
mobo: P6t or P6T deluxe?
Corsair 3x 2 GB
Corsair 850W PSU

I could see myself doing some OC (only if I can't play games on their best setting) but not to high or ridiculous levels. Does the P6T (non-deluxe) have raid? I couldn't find that mentioned anywhere. When I start working (software eng), I would like to set up RAID 1 for redundancy. Can't risk a drive dying and losing valuable work.

Case wise, I'll add my 2 cents. Go with the HAF 932. Yes it's big but it's one hell of a case. Firstly, it's cavernous and will provide you with ample room for current and future built. Ventilation is awesome and cable management is a charm. The downside is that it's not cheap but it's worth every penny.
