I don't think I need more space though, probably will stick with the 500 gb.
However, my question is, whats the difference between Asus P6T and Asus P6T deluxe... and v2. The money difference is 30~ (considering combo, the difference becomes 70) between Asus p6t and Asus p6t deluxe. For overclocking purposes,
is that worth a change at all? I'll be overclocking to around 3.8 ghz mostly, and probably staying overclocked most of the time. (If it gets unstable, probably go down to 3.6)
Oh I see you made a new thread the other night, I meant just repost in the same thread you were working on. Anywho- You really ought to go with the suggested change to the HDD-it's not just about space, it's about platter density and performance. The 640GB has more space, and it is a faster harddrive than the 500GB, it's 2 320GB platters, vs 2 250GB ones.
Also, why not crossfire 4870s? The ones I linked in my previous build were 129.99 each, vs the 159.99 on the GTX 260s you linked. That's a savings of $60 there, and do you really think the difference in price justifies the slight performance difference?
On the case, the Antec 300 is great and all, but have you checked out the features of the Lian-Li Lancool K7 I linked in the old thread? It's got good airflow, and it'll allow the long video cards more clearance from the HDD area (this is something that makes the 300 a tough choice for me to suggest) Anyone will tell you that Lian-Li makes superb cases, and I own the Lancool K10 myself (basically same as K7 but with dampening foam and front door) and it's been nothing short of amazing for me.
Please listen to my advice about buying a computer monitor. It's probably one of the most important things you have to pick out. There's a lot of things to look for, but the primary concern you need to consider is if it's appealing to your eyes. You're not going to want to go through the hassle of returning a monitor to newegg because you don't like the height on the stand, or you don't like how bright the front activity led is. These are all things you can determine from going into a retail shop and seeing them first hand. From there you can find out which one looks nice, and if the retail shop offers a good buy on it, you can save yourself the shipping cost, and the headache of shipping a delicate item back and forth.
The thing is, I'm receiving all these parts in college and I don't know any shops around my dorm yet, and I don't have a car. (I'm a freshmen) I wanted to avoid the hassle of finding and going out to a retail shop and then buying the monitor & driving it back, but since you persist so, I'll try to find a shop somewhere near where I can walk to... if that fails I'll just have to buy from newegg.
