Hi everyone, i need some critique on this rig that i've speced out. At the momment i plan on ordering it after the new year, hoping the prices will drop.

i plan on ocing the processor to around 3.0ghz.

thanks you for your time.

also i was looking at the newer quad that is appose to be coming out

It's beautiful.

I'd get 2x2GB RAM instead of 4x1GB, just to make upgrades to 8 GB possible for later.

I'd get MSI or BFG or XFX 8800 GTX (at the same $500 or less) instead of FoxConn.

I'd get a Scythe Ninja for $35 instead of the Arctic.
Or, if you want the absolute best air cooler, get the Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme and a SFF21F fan.

There's absolutely nothing wrong with your choices, so feel free to ignore any of this :)

Sweet thanks for the feedback

i`ve swapped the foxconn gtx w/ the BFG gtx.
(that was one weak point that i wasnt too sure about, ty)

is there any big differences between the scythe ninja and arctic?

The Arctic is pretty good, and excellent value for the money. Unfortunately I don't have any numbers for it right now.

Here are some numbers for the more recent coolers:

The Ninja comes very close to the leader (the Ultra 120 Extreme) but much cheaper. I know it's quiet because that's what I got myself. If you're not going to overclock much the Arctic will be fine too, or even the stock cooler. The part I like about the Arctic is that it's easier to install than most coolers.
