Hello there

My mom just gave me $335 to buy computer parts and I'll be getting them from Shanghai this Monday. My dad may also give me about $335 as well which may bring my total budget to $2800.

These are the parts that are in my list right now.

Intel Core i7 930,
Corsair HX850 850W,
Western Digital 2TB Caviar Black,
Sapphire Toxic HD5850,
Corsair XMS3 3x2GB DDR3-1600,
CoolerMaster HAF 932,

ASUS P6TD Deluxe/ASUS Rampage II Extreme/EVGA E760 Classified

Any suggestions before I buy the parts?

Looks good. Between the Rampage II Extreme/ E760 Classified. I am not sure which to recommend. I will leave that up for someone else to advice you in.

Are you not going to be using aftermarket heat sink to cool the i7 930? I'd recommend investing $60~ on a heat sink. for reviews on top heat sinks.

Also are you not getting a DVD burner? They cost like $25~, to add blu ray option is $60-$80 for a player.

Thanks! I almost forgot about the Optical Drives. I may be using Liquid Cooling in the future, so I think that getting a fan is not necessary at this moment.
