That looks like a sweet build, but I agree with the others about the cordless mouse. I've never found one that was as responsive as even a basic wired mouse, and I've used some pretty fancy cordless mice.
I went with the 740PSU because it was only a little bit more than the others on newegg and if I choose to upgrade things or add video cards etc. It's just a little bit of future proofing; if I want extra power I'll have it. Plus there was a combo deal for that and 8800gt which saved me some coin.
So basically the CAS 4 ram is preferred and a wired mouse...for better overclocking and gaming. I'm not really much of a gamer but, I did want to be able to run all the new titles on my rig.
ohiou, I think they were just talking about lag for "power users", extreme gamers need that extra millisecond, or whatever. The logitech kit I'm getting was pretty highly rated. Again though, I'm not one of those ridiculous gaming kids and this whole box is probably overkill for me but it's nice to know these things incase I choose to trade my social life in for membership in an online clan and a virtual sniper rifle.
I have come to respect aevm and cisco for their opinions and insight. They really try to help, your choices are great, my Xigmatek 120 lowered my cpu temps by 6 degrees c, and the fan is quiet. Do yourself a favor though and get a decent wired mouse, logitech g-5 is my favorite, check some out. Regardless of your gaming interests, you have designed a cool rig capable of gaming at an enjoyable level.
nussrods, oh yea I have noticed they are spot on too. I am not bashing anyone, I whole heartily appreciate all the opinions both bad and good everyone on this forum has attempted to give me and others.
As I said before, cas 4 mem and wired mouse upgrades are suggestions I plan on taking.
I know everyone loves the Q6600, but it is older now. I would just suggest that taking a look at the E8xxx series would be a good idea.
Also the Q9xxx series is getting into a better price range. I know that the AMD Phenom x4 9850 is $235, just as comparison. Anyway, I also agree that that PSU is a little overkill. The 8800GT is a good choice, though the 9 series cards are out, (9600GT, 9800GTX). Other than that, you have a good build.
