I would get this Hard Drive, I'm a WD Fan http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136063

Also I like this board (650i for around the same price) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131142 (If you have the extra few bucks get a 680i)

As for the video card I would go with this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130290 or the X1950PRO that you have listed, but again I'm an nvida man.

Other than that, it looks good.

uH OK. fIRST OF ALL, i THINK YOU SHOULD GET A e6600 INSTEAD OF THE E6750. Not sure but I think it's better. And get a WD hard drive, the seagate tends to get loud. (I have one) Also you might want to make sure yOU GET THE REBATE BACK FOR THE ram. bECAUSE THAT'S QUITE A HIGH PRICE (BEFORE REBATE.) aND get something likE A 8600gt, 512mb, dx10.

Edit: ugh sorry, computer is acting up...

Looks good. As for the video card, depends how much you care about DirectX 10. The X1950PRO is a hell of a lot faster than the 8600GTS, and personally, I'd get the X1950PRO.

If you want a great gaming-machine, bump the CPU too a e6600, and the GPU to an 8800. The CPU you have is still great for gaming, but for 80$ more, you can nearly double the power with a quad, which will last a whole lot longer before needing to be upgraded. And the 8600 won't play new games well, much less next years games.

Really, your suppose to tell us what you want it for, and your budget, so we can provide better suggestions.
