I have the Bloodrage board and love it, except that I can't put in a dedicated PhysX card when I'm in SLI, which is okay right now cuz not many games use PhysX. I will probably be switching my GTX 260s cards for some 5850s. I'm saving up up for the new Gulftown and a new motherboard that can do SLI + PhysX.
Most people I know have rather poor experiences with Acer products, especially monitors. Probably just coincidence though.
Excellent choice of components. I'd personally pick a Gigabyte or Asus motherboard, as these are known to be top notch quality-wise, but a Foxconn should be fine too.
Just a little question though: why get a system this expensive and not get an SSD? Not a single component delivers such a speed boost to a system.
On the other hand, that CPU is overkill. I7-9XX CPU's are power hungry and expensive, yet aren't better at all for gaming (even the lowly i5 beats the 920, the 8XX series decimates it) and for video editing either will be fine.
@dpaul - the 6 core i9 coming out next year will go in the same 1366 socket that the i7 920 sits in right now. There will not be any faster CPU for the 1156 socket than the i7 860. Socket 1156 is intels current mainstream socket and 1366 is their current high end socket.
Also pay attention to the testing methods, those examples you cite are at stock speeds. Once you overclock, the more agressive turbo boost in the 1156 socket CPUs evaporates and the i7 920 ends up faster.
Just because the i9 processors will use the 1366 socket, doesn't mean that you can use them with X58 motherboards. I would be surprised if Intel doesn't upgrade the Northbridge chipset to boost performance. Besides, very few people upgrade their Intel processor after they have their system put together.
With regard to overclocking, all of these CPUs are good overclockers, and depending on the system and the amount of art involved, one could get many different outcomes.
The conventional wisdom that the i920 / X58 computer is the top performer was true three months ago, but things have changed with the introduction of the P55 motherboards. Now that some test results are available, people need to stop touting the conventional wisdom as fact because things have changed. I think it is great that technology advances are giving us better performance at a reduced cost.
