After numerous post's and research I believe I might have nailed down the parts for my new i7 920 build. Please review and advise of any recommended changes? As stated in previous post I will be mainly doing AUTOCAD 2D, Adobe, Video and Photography editing and AVI to DVD. No gaming. The Video card was the hardest. Did not know if to go with a workstation or gaming card. Decided on a gaming since I am only doing 2D drawings and no major renderings. Suggestions on DVD burner?? Total cost with shipping $1478.72 Thanks.

Want to get order in during Neweggs 72 hour sale. Any comments, critiques or recommended changes???? Please? I have not built a computer in some years and all the new hardware is mind boggling to me.

I would go with the Western Digital 640GB Black OEM hard drive for $74.99 from Newegg, since it is the faster HDD. Everything else looks good. :)
