Additional Comments: Been going back and forth on a few things and added a fan controller to the mix, please let me know what you think and if there is any incompatible items. Also will be looking at combo deals when it's time for me to buy.
I am still really not too sure about SSD since this is more a gaming rig than anything else. As fas as I know SSD helps mainly with load times..most effectively with the OS. Since when I turn on the puter I usually go and get my drink it's not that big a deal to me

I would hold off on 5870's till the higher end OC-aftermarket cooler cards come out.. I think it should be around another month. Atleast, that's my opinion ( And what i'm doing. )
Great ram pick!
As for the mobo I love the Rampage II also, I have noticed it to be fairly buggy from what I have seen. If you are into heavy overclocking the Foxconn Bloodrage is a very nice board but a bit underrated by these forums. Of course the best warranty advantaged boards are the EVGA's.
If you feel like waiting Lamptron has the FC-5 coming out no ETA atm but it's a nice little fan controller with adjustable led colors. + 30w per channel I believe it was.
