Building a new comptuer, I haven't built a new one in like 6 years, I'm long overdue for an upgrade. Now, hopefully I can figure out how to put all this junk together.. Might need some advice on how to throw all this stuff together, I need someone who knows what they are talking about and tell me if this looks good.

Hard Drive:
Power Supply:
Bluray Drive and DVD Drive:
(Optional) CPU Fan/Cooler:
Not sure which video card to get... need some advice. Should I wait for the Direct X 11 cards to come out or what?
Also, OS will be Win 7.

What will you be using this system for? I highly doubt you need an 850 watt PSU, a 750 watt PSU is sufficient to power a dual card setup. Some of these components seem overkill while others, like the caviar green drive, seem a bit lax relative to the others. If you could add another post filling out the template shown here that would be very helpful

DX11 cards are already out, namely the 5800 and the 5700 series.
We'd need more info from you to give specific recommendations, though.
Please refer to the sticky for the info we need =)
