Here's the system I have put together so far. Let me know what you think about this setup. I hate to sacrifice any performance, but if there is better stuff for the price, I'm open to other products. I am upgrading my current system and am sticking with my Antec P180B case and 620W Corsair power supply.

Intel Core i7-920 Bloomfield 2.66GHz 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core Processor

Cooler Master V8 Nickel Plated Copper Base Aluminum Fins 8 Heatpipes Core i7 1366 CPU Cooler

CORSAIR DOMINATOR 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TR3X6G1600C8D

EVGA 01G-P3-1180-AR GeForce GTX 285 1GB 512-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Western Digital VelociRaptor WD1500HLFS 150GB 10000 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive


I'm thinking about going with one of the following two motherboards. I would like to spend $300 or less. Any suggestions? I'm looking for something that is easy to overclock.

ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard

EVGA E758-A1 3-Way SLI (x16/x16/x8) LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard
