Hi

It's time too upgrade my current Pentium4 478socket to the newest technology ;) 

New system:

ASUS P6T WS PRO, X58
Western Digital VelociRaptor 150GB S-ATA
6GB OCZ DDR3 PC3-10666 Intel® Extreme Low-Voltage Triple Channel (Other suggestion?)
Intel Core i7 920
Club3D HD4870X2 2 GB GDDR5 PCIe 2.0 (Is club3d any good brand?)
OCZ EliteXStream strømforsyning 800W (Will it be enough?)

I need feedback on my new system, some product experience or any suggestions. Thanks

Greetings!

Velociraptor is not a great investment. Just get a good, large HD. In a few months there will be good deals on SSDs that will be far faster.

No data on Club3D.

The OCZ 800W is more than enough for one 4870X2. There are better PSUs at better prices usually, but without knowing where you are shopping or what is available I can't recommend anything.

If you want very high quality, a Corsair or PC Power and Cooling 750TX would do the job.

If you want to add a second 4870X2 in the future you will need a Corsair 1000W at least.

i've had a club3d 4850 and its a little basic, but it runs fine, their site also seems to be good. Don't have any experience with the customer service.

Most club3d are a little cheaper and don't overclock well, (if thats what you plan to do (I don't ))

Just make sure they have the same specs that they should have.

i'd also dump the velociraptor, unless you really want to,
They are fast at loading games. And have a quick acces time. If you have the budget i'd say go ahead. But I would buy a 640GB Western digital as a 2nd hardrive. To store all your music, films etc...

4870X2 has enough juice, 800watt is more then enough, i'd switch to a 620 watt corsair hx, or OCZ gamexstream 700 watt, that will save you some :) 

make sure you use vista x64 for that 6 gig
