These are the components i have chosen so far: :D 



CPU: Intel Core i7 920 D0 Stepping (SLBEJ) 2.66Ghz

CPU COOLER: Prolimatech Megahalems Performance CPU Cooler

MOBO: Asus P6TD Deluxe Intel X58
(was initially going for the gigabyte ud-5 but apparently the prolimatech megahalems blocks the ram slots so i went with this which is supposed to be practically equal to the gigabyte in almost everything)

RAM: OCZ Gold 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C8 (1600MHz)

GPU: Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 5870 1024MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card (SINGLE card not crossfire)
(really an nvidia guy and just might wait for their next card which is suppost to be coming soon but from my understanding this is king at the moment)

HDD: Samsung SpinPoint F3 1TB SATA-II 32MB Cache

CASE: Coolermaster Stacker 832 Case

PSU : PC Power & Cooling Silencer 910W Power Supply
(its either this or the Corsair TX 850W ATX SLI Compliant Power Supply, i will be going crossfire/sli after a while)




As for the cpu cooler, i wish to set it up with 2x120mm fans in a push/pull config, although im not sure which fans to get can anyone reccomend the best out of these? >>

(i already own a delta focused flow fan but i think its gonna be too noisy and apparently it breaks most fan controllers : :??:  )


Any expert advice on my choice/any particular component is appreciated!!


thanks

This PSU will be plenty, even for crossfire

Also, what resolution are you at and what are you using the computer for?

i have a dell 3007wfp so if possible at 2560x1600, except for crysis ;p which i intend on playing perfectly at 1920x1200

checked that psu out and its like 15£ less than the corsair 950 atx:

for that little, i think il go with the corsair since i might change to nvidia's new release the new "haloween card" until i order, as long as its better than the 5870 ofcourse.

im sceptical about ati since, looking at m friends 4870x2 croosfire, games still look better (detail not performance) on my current single 8800gtx, so im gonna wait for nvidia next release. it might just be me but games just look better using nvidia
