I'm not arguing with the motherboard selection, I'm saying that his hard drive doesnt need to be sata 6gb/s because the hard drive is much slower than what sata 3gb/s offers

shozzking is right, save $30 dollars and get a 3GB/s harddrive.You will not see no difference in speed.USB 3.0 is good to have but not worth the extra $.Almost 90% of AM3 boards has 3.0 USB and 6GB/s at really good prices.

Final check before I order the parts tonight.

CPU - i7 930 http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...3&Sku=I69-0930 - $289.99

CPU Cooler - Cooler Master Hyper N520 http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...&Sku=C283-1202 - $29.99

Motherboard/RAM - EVGA X58 LE/OCZ 3x2GB triple channel 1600MHz http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.468562 $289.98 (after mail in rebates)

Video Card - EVGA GTX 470 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130550 - $299.99 (I believe there is another $20 mail in rebate not included in that)

CD/DVD Drive - Sony Optiarc Black http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827118039 - $18.99

Hard Drive - Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136534 - $59.99

Case/Power Supply - Antec 1200/Antec CP-850 850W http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.458430 - $224.98

Total - $1213.91 before tax
With tax should be around $1286.74

Is the Antec PSU good, or should I ditch the combo and get the Corsair 750W?

Hope I'm not forgetting anything and that my math is right.
