Hello, I recently had a little computer fire and have decided to just build a new system. I haven't kept up with hardware since my build three years ago and it has been slow going looking up stuff on my temporary computer.

I mostly would like to know if there are any things I should be aware of with the hardware I've chosen. I've yet to play around with Windows 7 or an ssd drive. Any things I should look for?

Components:

Core i7 930
Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R
Cogage True Spirit CPU cooler
6GB Corsair Ram here

Intel x25-M g2 80 gig ssd
My old GTS 8800 640MB video card
Corsair 750 Watt True Power
Hard drives, dvd drives

Any tips on things to look out for would be appreciated. I intend on overclocking it but I just need to get things up and running asap.

Looks good, that SSD drive rocks. I put one in my rents new PC just a week ago. Get a better GPU if you like to game.

I kinda let Win 7 do it's thing and it auto-detected and configured itself for the SSD.
