Grab an 80GB Intel X-25M G2 or an 80GB Vertex for your OS and applications and then a 1TB WD Black for storage.

People get large power supplies so they can do heavy overclocking and 2-4 video cards.

With the HX1000 you could run a LOT. Maybe 3-4 GTX295's for folding with a heavily OC'd i7, I dunno.

Ok thanks. I will be running 2 gpu's. Ok next stupid question, Hwo do you decide which mother board to use. ASUS and others have so many different models it is hard to decide which to get. I pretty much picked the one I did because of good reviews but perhaps there is something more that I should be looking at.
You guys are more experienced in this field then I am so I look forward to your thoughts.

1000 is overkill and trust me I had this cooler for like a month and it suck. Go with prolimatech Megahalem ( second edition 1156 compatible ) or noctua NH-U12P or Ultra 120. For a mobo the first thing I look is the layout of sata port and everything. Good layout make the board easy to work with and to add thing with time. That's a reason why I love gigabytes like the P55-UD4P.

Ask for more.

People pick on brand preference, features, support, overclockability. eVGA is the king of support with A1 boards carrying a lifetime warranty.

The evga looks very impressive and I don't see anyone else offering a lifetime warranty. I may have to look closer at that board.

Their support is also above and beyond should you ever need to RMA.
