Ordering my new build tomorrow at last! It's going to be used for graphic design, gaming and video encoding. Budget is $1500. Any recommended changes are welcome.

Intel Core i7-920 Bloomfield 2.66GHz LGA 1366 & ASUS P6X58D Premium combo

XFX Radeon HD 5870 & OCZ Gold 6GB DDR3 1600 combo
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...

Corsair 620W modular power supply & WD Caviar Black 750GB HD combo

Cooler Master CM690 II

Cooler Master Hyper 212

Sony Optiarc Black

Throw in some thermal paste and the total + shipping comes out to $1517.19

Thoughts: Newegg is out of Samsung Spinpoint F3. Hoping the power supply can power all this. Hoping WD Black doesn't suck. Hoping XFX is better than ASUS.

Looks good, if you go with WD get the black 640 or 1T HDD there a bit faster then the 500 or 750 ( samsung would be first choice ) Maybe try zipzoomfly or amazon

If you plan to xfire down the road i would go with a 750W PSU < if not that PSU is more then enough

XFX makes good GPUs any has a life time warranty

The HSF comes with thermal paste

niklas_13 saves the day again. How's this look?

WD Caviar Black 1TB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The power supply isn't modular but by taking off the thermal paste from my order and changing the combo to these two items the total actually comes out cheaper

$1,511.88

So I'm paying $6 less for 250GB more and a higher wattage supply at the cost of power supply not being modular. Not bad. Hopefully this case has plenty of spots to hide wires.

Looks good ( Just remove the 2 bottom HDD racks and tuck the spare cables under there )

That"s a nice case BTW used one for a friends build

I was thinking. They have slots to run the wires behind the case for cable management. Hopefully theres enough room to stick all the extra cables

Ordered my PC just moments ago! Had to make a quick change so I wouldn't go broke for the next two weeks. Downgraded video card to a HD 5850. Which also works out for me because I don't think I would ever xfire two 5870's but I would gladly do two 5850's one day.

Sounds good, I have a HD 5850 and it does very well. I might xfire latter when prices come down i bought mine when they first came out for 260 i cant see myself paying 300 to xfire maybe when there 220 :) 

GL with the build enjoy
