  1. Lets lower and higher some stuff.

    I7 920

    Asus P6T Deluxe V2

    card is good if its your liking

    Get triple channel Memory: OCZ Platinum 3x2gb DDR3 1600

    WD Black 640gb is all you'll need

    Reader is fine unless you would rather have an LG 22x DVD

    600w will not function a gtx 295.

    850tx PSU

    The case, Coolermaster RC-690 will be just fine or go with a full tower.
  2. what games do you play?

    dual Xeon quads are only worth it if you play FSX since your using up half the threads that it can use vs 1/4 with a i7 9xx.

    next the perf. enhancements of a 940 over a 920 are very little, best idea would be to get an i7 920 D0 and a high-end cooler and OC to above 4ghz which seems to be an easy feat for D0 processors.
