Well I'm not looking for advice on what products to buy and where.

I've ordered this already and it was delivered today but I'm at work now so I havnt set it up yet.

Just wondering what you guys make of it?

Why ask for opinions if you've already bought the stuff?

Jesus christ what do I have to do to get an opinion?

Ok iloqin,
for arguments sake we'll say I havnt bought it yet.

Now what do you think?

Hard to offer an opinion without knowing the intended usage & what your budget was (approximately). I can think of one or two things I'd change if it's a gaming build, but if it's a transcode/HTPC/general purpose, those gaming-oriented changes wouldn't make sense.

Also, trans-Atlantic prices are weird, it's hard to tell what's reasonable just by eyeballing it. That looks like a $1000 medium-rez gaming build in the US, but I have no idea what it would cost in, say, Croatia.
