IMO Extreme QX9650 is not worth almost $1k. You can get the Q6700 for about $530 (if you're still crazy) or just settle with Q6600 for about $260.
I'd wait until NVIDIA releases their 9800 series video cards, prices on 8800GTS will most likely drop even more.
Get a reliable PSU, like Antec, you can get the Antec 850 for about $180 from newegg, very good, stable, 85% energy efficient, and it has cool racing stripes, weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.
Nice case, my friend just bought one of those, easily accessible and light for its size.
Hm, and, do you really need a 30 inch monitor? I have a 24 and sometimes feels a bit too big.
Are you planning on running windows XP or Vista? If you're thinking about Vista, go with 64 bit, nice and stable...
I know you prolly don't want to hear it, but here's what i would do...
Shave money off of the pc build but still keep to the higher end main stream, save money, and get a mid-high end projector. as long as you don't go 1080p you can get a decent price on one... then you can fit your entire pc setup in a duffel bag and have a 8foot monitor on the move. (not to mention anyone that likes to watch football will be your best frienda t least once a year?)
The 45nm quad core is really where it's at though, easy to overclock and I just really like the technology. If there are two things in this whole build who are giving me really warm and fuzzy feelings (regardless of cost) it's the 45nm quad core and the Armor case!
I know this is off topic, but what's the release schedule on Intel's lower-end 45nm quad cores?
I would consider the projector route if I had the room. In my current residence I do not have space to project onto, and I will be moving shortly and can not be garunteed of space to project onto in the new location either. So that option is unfortunately out right now. =/
if you drop the QX9650 and use the money saved on buying 2x8800GTS 512MB's, you should be fine
I already plan on buying 2x 8800GTS 512s, that's what's listed.
