OVERCLOCKING: Some overclock, looking for performance and longevity. Thinking around 3.2-3.6GHz.
SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Not now, maybe in future.
MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1080. I like huge monitors, and this will have a 40" 1080p Toshiba LCD TV attached to it.
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Requirements: At least 2TB storage, i7 and x58, Blu-ray, wireless keyboard/mouse. Really want to have SSD. I really love the NZXT Tempest case. My goal is to have this computer last me for roughly 5-6 years (I know, ridiculous).
Here's the lineup so far:
If you are gonna OC, then you will need an above average TIM....
I suggest this stuff -- OCZ FREEZE
this stuff doesn't need to cure, and in most app's cools better than AS-5 (there is actually an article on this site that tests thermo compounds - this stuff came in second, and the winner I have no idea where to buy it)
Also, for fansinks for the cpu, I would recommend either Xigmatek or Zalman
