within the next month or so I intend on getting this rig. I'm planning on using it with two 1080p monitors for some gaming, virtual machines, lots of video editing/rendering and web development (however I'm hoping to get into application development too). What are your thoughts?
The 4x1tb Spinpoint F3's would be used in a RAID 1 array (so I would have 2tb usable space), and the SSD would be used for boot and applications. The 20gb SSD on the motherboard would be used to cache the RAID 1 array. The singular CoolerMaster 120mm SickleFlow fan would be used with the 212+. The HD6950's will be flashed to 6970 and overclocked, and run in Crossfire. Planning on overclocking the 2600k to 4.5-5ghz. We'll see...
