haha why would i need a new card mate? My 8800GT is just fine lol and MIGGS as much as id like to get another lighter case unfortunetely none come with the ability of mounting a triple rad soo cleanly. I just wanted a new Cpu my 8800gt is uber fast and still havent seen the max potential after i put it under water.

Great rig you got there mate. How come you didn't get the WD Caviar though? Those are the fastest 7200RPM hard drives on the market.

Other than that, looks great. Have fun building your rig. I know I will =)

ive always trusted seagate with all my builds the only ones that gave me a problem were the 7200.10 320gb series which 2 out of the 3 i have went rma anyways i already had the 320gb and 500 gb seagates i did not buy em with these parts just carrying on and ill wait for the next series before i upgrade my hard drives. Not much into WD even if their faster i trust seagate personal preferance.
