Get the g-15, g-19 overkill, overpriced.
Nerf the 4850x2, slow and old, get a 5870...
Settle for the 850w corsair, for 10 years too come, 1000w will still be overkill
Sound card not really necessary, onboard sound is more then enough for 99.9% of people
Get a HAF932 or 922, save yourself a bit of cash...
7 case fans? overkill for any system... just get 3 or so scythe ones..
