build final gaming system thoughts welcome

How about an F3 spinpoint 1TB instead?
And if the proc was $200 then you're really only saving like $15 from a better set of memory such as below.
As for the blu-ray. Personally I came to the conclusion that I'll never buy a blu-ray movie so why bother. Anyway I'll probably wait until the blanks are cheap enough before buying a writer.

Hmm , not a bad pair of suggestions. Def want to stick to blue as ram color *stupid, but none the less*.
Any other thoughts or suggestions are as always, welcome.

Get the spinpoint f3 hard drive as suggested. if you don't need 1tb, get the 500gb for $55.
Do you really watch movies on your computer? Just saying...
That motherboard doesn't support 6gb/s sata or USB 3.0...
This one does and it's blue
