The following parts that I have decided on are really rough and I would love any recommendations for the whole build.
If there is a blank "?" that means I really don't know.
Processor (CPU): i7 920
Motherboard: EVGA Classified X58 EATX
DDR3 Memory (RAM): Corsair XMS3 Dominator GT 6GB
Video Cards: Geforce 470GTX (I know there are better ATI cards but I'm a Nvidia guy)
Computer Case: ? (I right now have an Antec 900)
Power Supply: ? (I right now have an Antec Earthwatts 750w)
CPU Cooling: CORSAIR Cooling Hydro Series CWCH50-1 120mm High Performance CPU Cooler (I right now have a pretty good fan but...not any brand name like ZALMAN)
Water Cooling: ? (Right now I really want Water Cooling...but I don't know anything about it and which is the best)
LCD Monitors: 19'' ViewSonic 75Hz
Operating System: Windows 7 64-bit
Hard Drives: ? (I really only need 1 TB. Anyone know which ones good?)
DVD Writer: ? (Suggestions)
Solid State Drives: ? (I reaaaally want one of these for just OS booting time reduce)
Network Card: Bigfoot Xeno Pro

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Reusing Antec 900 and Antec Earthwatts 750w
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: ncix.com/newegg.com. Canada.
PARTS PREFERENCES: I really don't care about brand name just quality.
OVERCLOCKING: Maybe SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Yes
MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1440x900, 1600x1200, 1680x1050, 1920x1080
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I really like looking at specifications/facts.
Honestly, I think that the Bigfoot is a waste of money as it dosen't really do anything useful...and Intel PCIe gigabit nic does just a much......
DVD Writer: Samsung & HP make good brands
Your case and PSU should be just fine.
Water cooling is not necessary unless your going to do serious overclocking, or live in the desert with no AC.
Hard Drive: WD Caviar Black for games/applications Samsung Spinpoint F3 for music/multimedia
SSD: Solid State drives are too expensive right now to be really considered, I would wait for the price to come down some. Basically you could get 2.5 TB almost for the price of a 64 GB SSD. Is the performance worth it?
I would definately ditch the Xeno, based on my experiance as a network engineer and as a PC gamer.
