Everything you have there is perfect, the only thing I can suggest is changing the case to an Antec 900. It has a shipping deal on right now, for cases that can save you a good amount of money you didn't need to spend on shipping costs.

Since you're going with an Asus monitor, I would trust the same brand TV Tuner.

Well you can try and save some more cash here(about $90), allowing you to get the second one much earlier I guess...

CASE - The Tempest is very good but you can save about $40 with this case and it has Free shipping too...
CM 690 - Though it does not have side panel, it has sufficient airflow and is highly rated...
But if you want the side panel, then you can buy that separately later...

Mobo - The P6T Deluxe is no doubt good but if you get a wonderful board for less then why not...
ASUS Rampage Gene...
Reason -
Though it is a microATX board, it performs better than the P6T full-sized board and overclocks better...So it would give comparable performance of the P6T Deluxe...And it has onboard premium sound too...

PSU - Save about $10 with this PSU - Is as good as the corsair and some consider it little better...

So totally you have saved about $100 and am sure if you check out for combos @ newegg, you can save much more...

I c thanks for the advices again haha im looking them up right now...
i found this combo so should i switch my case to Antec 900?
I really like The tempest haha XD but im considering the CM 690.. and Antec 900 isnt bad withe...
what if the price is not a concern which case would u use?
And i think im lean with the ASUS Rampage Gene, if the mobo is smaller does that mean more air flow and other parts would run cooler too?

Go with the Antec 900 combo for sure. Stick with the P6T Deluxe V2. gkay09, If you looked at the benchmark correctly you would see that the board is a P6T, not V2. Micro ATX boards are best off in a mATX case.

An mATX mobo should actually run hotter because everything its places closer together with smaller bridge coolers etc.

If price isn't a concern I would get a LIAN LI ARMORSUIT PC-P50. Thats personal preference though, and looking at it through a modding/water cooling stand point. I'm actually getting this case pretty soon :na:
