:) 

Core 2 Duo E6600
Asus P5W DH Deluxe Motherboard
OCZ Platinum PC2-6400 EL XTC 2048MB Kit, DDR2, 240 Pin, 800Mhz
FX600-GLN Froton Source PSU
Creative X-Fi Gamer
1 Raptor 150 GB 10,000 rpm (For OS, Games)
2 x Western Digital Sata2 250GB Hard Drives setup up in Raid 1 for data (wife has a business)
Asus 7950 GTX (Can this board handle this SLI card? Its one card .. yet 2?)
Samsung 204B 20 inch LCD panel

Speakers.. DVD Burner blah blah blah...

I guess I want to know what HSF would be best? I will use Artic Silver for the compound. I dont plan to overclock, I just want a stable high end system for myself that will compliment the needs of my wifes buisness. Thus the RAID etc. (Raid is easy to setup on this board right?)

Is my PSU good enough for this setup? Can my setup work with the 7950 GTX?

Thanks.

I think you like gaming than wifes Business.Try to buy 2 Raptors and put them into RAID 0 .Use Single 250GB HDD to backup stuff.

ATI X1950XTX is my choice(Less expensive+DX 10 is around the corner)
Your mobo only support crossfire so you can't put GX2 to it.For more info try this link

If you plan to buy HD DVD drive Samsung 20' is good for that i can't remember the native res..Otherwise go to DELL 19' Ultra Sharp

Try to Buy OCZ 700W PSU
