Default Folding/Gaming Rig -- need advice

Hello fellow HWC's

I am looking to build a folding rig and gaming rig, but mostly folding.



1. What YOUR PC will be used for. That means what types of tasks you'll be performing.

Folding/gaming - some programming

2. What YOUR budget is. A price range is acceptable as long as it's not more than a 20% spread

around 1800 give or take

3. What country YOU will be buying YOUR parts from.

Canada

4. IF YOU have a brand preference. That means, are you an Intel-Fanboy, AMD-Fanboy, ATI-Fanboy, nVidia-Fanboy, Seagate-Fanboy, WD-Fanboy, etc, etc, etc, you get the picture.

not really - but remember its a folding rig

5. If YOU intend on using any of YOUR current parts, and if so, what those parts are.

Corsair H50, G15 keyboard, G9 mouse, Dell 30" monitor, blu-ray drive

6. IF YOU have searched and/or read similar threads.

of course

7. IF YOU plan on overclocking or run the system at default speeds.

absolutely

8. WHEN do you plan to build it?

in about 2-3 weeks

9. What resolution do you use?

1920x1200

Intel i7 930
Gigabyte X58A-UD3R
Western Digital Black 1TB 64MB
Coolermaster HAF X
Silverstone Strider 750W
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 460 Fermi 715MHZ 1GB x2

Not sure what to get for memory. I would like it if it fits into my blue black theme but if not i can deal with it. I would like a triple channel kit.

anyway any advice would be great. Thanks

-INH
