Ok, I've been researching for the month and have finally come up with my "final build" specs. Please let me know what you think. If you have suggestions please make them. I am open to spending more but I do not want to break the bank. If you see specific area's where I can increase performance let me know. I plan to do a mild overclock, somewhere around 3.2 ghz. Thanks :D

Why are you asking us, you already got a perfect build. You should be in here helping those in dire need of a clue.

Only vary small criticism is not enough hard drive space, but you know what you need and what you will use the system for better then anyone.

I wouldn't say mild overclock. 500Mhz is the maximum of a typical P965 mobo. Mine is up to 700mhz fsb. FSB 457Mhz is what you'll be looking at. 457 x 7 = 3200mhz (vs 1862mhz stock), about 72% overclocker. Ram will be at 914mhz. I'm afraid it may not be easy to get there. Unless it'll be in an a/c'ed or cool room. Now if you have a case with a 25cm fan on the left side like mine...

So for example if I want the RAM to run at 800mhz what is the highest I could get the CPU to run in 1:1

Sorry I know, dumb question. If you don't feel like answering could you point me in the right direction with a link? Thanks for your comments.

Wait never mind. You multiply the ram speed you want (400mhz) * multiplier (7) = 2.8 ghz cpu!!! I could be happy with 2.8ghz 8)

That's it. 3ghz-ish is easy to achieve with 6300.
