Buidling another gaming system

Hey guys and gals, im in the process of building another gaming system, I dont know if someone out there can input on this or if someone has already done this, If you have done it then all the feedback is greatly appricated

Ok so here goes,
ASUS P6T7 WS Supercomputer MoBo
Intel Core i7-975 Extreme Edition Bloomfield 3.33GHz
OCZ Z-Drive m84 OCZSSDPCIE-ZDM84256G PCI-E 256GB
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) X's 6
Ultra X4 1600-Watt Modular Power Supply
XFX HD-597A-CNB9 Radeon HD 5970 Black Edition X's 2

I know some of these items still have bugs and what not, but Im willing to seal with that, again any and all feedback

  1. 1. Don't need a i7 975.

    2. Don't need a Z-Drive unless you have a special need for fast access to files (massive file server,etc).

    3. Over kill on the motherboard.

    4. No need for a 1.6kW PSU.

    5. WTF? Why are you running Dual Channel on a Tri Channel board? (esp. given the fact you seem to be able to afford a EE CPU).

    6. Overall, a good wast of money.

    .SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) X's 6 say about 1200 give or take...
    Kingston HyperX 12GB (3 x 4GB) X2 say about 1500 give or take a hundred or so

    If the tri is really going to make a diff. Then yes i will go with a tri, 24/ thats why im on here.
  3. I will never recommend LGA1366 system especially the extreme edition for gaming.

    Why?

    Lower is better in some cases:

  4. The i7 980x 6 core CPUs are out...the i7 975 are basically obsolete.
  5. I can't find the 980x on any retailer or intel's website. Where are they?
