  1. ^ Good build...
    But I will suggest a different CPU and mobo -
    i7 930 + Gigabyte X58A-UD3R
    Newer CPU + Newer mobo with SATA 6GB/s and USB 3.0
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.355680

    And any specific reason you went with a mATX mobo ? Having a small case ?

    And what video cards do you have or planning to buy ? SLI ?
    And does the PSU that you have selected have just 1 6PIn PCIe power connector ? (IU think you will need atleast 2 for powerful cards...

  2. If the video cards are too old you might just want to sell them.

  3. I have 1 GeForce GTS 250 1GB. but I could always upgrade in the future :)
  4. I have 1 GeForce GTS 250 1GB. but I could always upgrade in the future :)
  5. ^ When will you be upgrading the monitor and graphics card ?
    Take a look at this article - It has some comparison between the i5 750 and i7 930...
    IMO if it is a gaming build, then save money by going with i5 750 and get the GTX 470/ GTX480
