It's a nice computer, and will last you a while. What kind of FPS are you getting, and, you ran any benchmarks yet?

Very nice computer. I'll last you for a while, so don't worry...yet.

The 3800+ is a pretty nice processor, no complaints there. The A8N-SLI isn't bad, but not one of ASUS's best. The 7900 GTX is very nice, but like everything, it has it's disadvantages (especially in pixel shader-heavy games like Far Cry or Oblivion). It's nice to see 2GB of RAM, but from Ultra? No offense, but they're not exactly the type of company with a good track record. Their PSU's may be nice, but I would invest in better brands. Your hard drives are very nice, but Western Digital isn't my cup of tea (Seagate FTW!). The case and PSU aren't bad. After all those kinds of things are really based of preference after all. Is your case loud? I can't imagine Ultra coming out with silent fans.

All in all, nice system. It'll definately last you a while.

Yeah, before I built my first computer, I thought it would be pretty hard. Turns out, it's pretty easy, as long as you don't do anything stupid.

The one thing that probably motivates me the most, however, is the pride and feeling that you get when you accomplish your first build. It just feels so good.

8.5/10 max. A8N-SLI? Come on, you can do better than that, DFI LP SLI-DR Expert. Ultra branded RAM? No thanks, OCZ PC4000 EB. Seagate drives are a lot nicer than WD, but WD are okay. Ultra psu? Nah, OCZ GameXstream or Fortron AX-500a. 120mm Ultra fans? Try Panasonic Panaflos M1A or Sanyo Denkis.

But at least you could have went with AM2. Thats the biggest thing that brings it down.

It's a good system, but it could have easily been better with that kind of money. Personally I have no problem with WD drives, but I gotta agree with ownage on the memory and mobo.. but hey, what did you get is pretty damn good. should put up excellent performance.

How would it get too hot? If your airflow isn't good enough, get some silent case fans. If you leave a side panel open, all it does is ruin the airflow pathways that the case designers originally intended.
