I'm building an allrounder computer (also for games and working with videos).
I got already a bit of an idea what i want everywhere.
I'm not from the US (so i can't profit from any newegg special offers for example) but i got some contacts that can order me parts that i won't get in normal webstores here in Europe.
case: Twelve Hundred Black Steel ATX Full Tower Antec
power supply: be quiet Straight Power 580W
Motherboard: P6X58D Premium LGA 1366 Intel X58 ASUS
CPU: i7-930 quad core 2,8 GHz intel
RAM: PI Series 6GB (3 x 2GB) F3-12800CL7T-6GBPI G.Skill
harddrive: SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB Samsung
optical drive1: Blue-Ray Disc iHES208 Lite-on-it
optical drive 2: SH-S223L Samsung
Card reader: PC-Card-Drive intern ARP;jsessionid=%28J2EE2320900%29ID1472081050DB11812252494941408460End;saplb_*=%28J2EE2320900%292320950?area=009_003
videocard: Radeon HD 5850 ATI or even HD 5970
Monitor 1: E1910 19-inch-wide Dell
Monitor 2: VW224U ASUS
keyboard: Digital Media Keyboard 3000 Microsoft
mouse: Xai Laser SteelSeries
fan (cpu): Sclythe? (probably some 120mm fan)
CPU cooling: Ultra 120-extreme Thermalright
software: Windows 7 Professional Microsoft

I hope you can approve or find me even better components. There are 2 question marks at the moment: cpu cooling and additional fans if necessary (for the cpu cooling too, if not included)
Thank you very much for your help!


edit: i'm also looking for a possible cheaper motherboard that has usb 3.0 and sata 3 too.

isn't that a bit much power for me? 500W should be plenty if it's stable and from a good brand. with 850W i could add 2 more videocards...

by the way, i think i found a motherboard that is cheaper but still good enough: GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R LGA 1366 Intel X58

edit: does anyone know a good cpu cooler? as far as i know the noctua NH-U12P SE2 or the ultra 120-extreme rev. C thermalright shouldn't be bad, but i don't know if i have enough space to install them and how loud they are (in case of the noctua where 2 fans or built in). for the thermalright i would need a fan. i heard the scyth fans 120mm could be good...

i just read somewhere that the antec 1200 case is quite loud. is that true and if yes, what else do you recomment me? or what do you think might be the loudest part that i'm considering for my computer?

in this review i saw that the Prolimatech Megahalems Rev B. Intel CPU Heatsink is great, especially with 2 Yate Loon 120mm fans. Do you approve? I never read about any of those 2 brands even tough i was searching quite a lot for a cpu cooler. I still don't have a clue how much space i have for a cpu cooler. can you estimate if there's enough space for this heatsink?
