Default My Updated Build

Alright, so I took everyone's feedback into consideration from my previous thread. Here's my updated build:

MoBo: ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131365

CPU: Intel Core i7-960 Bloomfield 3.2GHz 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core Desktop Processor - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115224

HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black WD10000LSRTL 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive -Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...L%201TB%207200

RAM: OCZ Gold 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Voltage Desktop Memory Model OCZ3G1600LV6GK - Retail Intel X58 chipset core i7 6GB kit
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-365-_-Product

GPU: GIGABYTE GV-R585D5-1GD-B Radeon HD 5850 (Cypress Pro) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card w/ATI Eyefinity - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814125300

Optical Drive: HP Black 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM SATA 24X Multiformat DVD Burner LightScribe Support - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-041-_-Product

PSU: OCZ ModXStream Pro OCZ700MXSP 700W ATX12V V2.2 / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply compatible with core i7 - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817341018

Case: AZZA Solano 1000 Black/Black Japanese SECC Steel/Metal mesh in front ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811517004

I am going to stick with the ASUS P6T Deluxe with the i7-960. I do not know much about overclocking, and don't mind spending the extra money. I'm going to stick with "Retail" versions of the HDD and DVD Drive because this is my first build and would like to idiot proof it as much as possible.

Thanks,
Kyle

You are throwing away several hundred dollars if you buy that 960. Seriously, buy a 920.

Even at stock clocks, it is powerful enough.

You save $20 by not getting the box. It is exactly the same thing otherwise.

Also, you save $40 with this 5850 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-884-_-Product

He didn't listen to any of our feedback and apparently just wants the attention if he wants to make another thread about the same subject.

If he doesn't mind spending the money it's most likely not his money in the first place.

^Seriously good advice here.^

I don't know what you'll be doing to benefit the extra clock speed the 960 offers and even then the 920 will achieve the 960's speed.

'Beating' and 'Dead Horse' spring to mind...
