OVERCLOCKING: Never done it before, maybe but would be a while before I got to that.
MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1200
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: This build will be used as my primary computer for 1 year. Not looking for SLI to start with but may add another card later if I think I need it. This is also only my 2nd full build, so please nothing to complicated.
Velociraptors are old tech. Newer 500GB platter HDDs beat them in performance for far less money. The Samsung F3 is currently the best deal in HDDs (if you can find them in stock). The Seagate 7200.12 is not as fast as the F3 but still beats a velociraptor in some benchmarks. The Caviar Black 2TB is WDs only 500GB platter drive right now.
Why are you getting an expensive thermaltake PSU when you can get a quality Antec TruePower or Corsair for less?
Why are you getting so much expandability if you only intend to use it for a year?
