That's a sweet system. I wish I could afford a x1900xt. Oh well have fun and be sure to post some benchmarks(ecspecially SuperPi once you overclock).

agreed if you wanted a gaming computer and still are looking into the future dual core would be the way to go, i have a AMD x2 4200 not OC and i played oblivion with 0 glitches or flaws. i also have the sapphire x1900xt its amazing. but yea it sounds pretty good, im a lil worried about the HDD's though ? ... i guess if thats what you want, i mean do you plan on storing music, photos or videos or even any other documents ? ... i use my 75 gig raptor for OS, games and basic applications ... then i slam my 200gig caviar with the music, videos, or games that dont need the raptor, like FFVII or my emultors. but thats just my personal opinion, i hope you have fun with your stuff

i also have 2x 250G, 1x 300G and 1x 120G as well. i couldnt be bothered to mention them as i dont see them as part of th gaming side of my comp, more as the multimedia side of it. its all in my sig


and as for dual cores the first thing i upgraded on my comp was the cpu which i did about a year ago from a 3000+ to a 4000+ im still happy with it and altho i would love a dual core i dont think im going to spend anymore money after the corsair ram for a long time

That's a nice build man, you will have fun with that.

OMG - You have 991 GB storage. Stick another 20GB in there and make it 1TB lol!

When it's all up and running, I want to see screenshots of system, every drive, CPUz, SuperPI, the lot!
