I did not purchase all the items from Newegg but I figured it would just be easier to link the items from that website. I purchased the GTX 470 overclocked because I only paid 300 bucks for it so I couldnt pass it up. I know some people will disagree with my purchase on Ram but I wanted to give A-data a shot since I have heard a lot of great things about their products. My main concerns are the monitor and the psu but I have not found any horrible reviews on either product so I will just keep my fingures crossed. :D  Anyways, just let me know what you think. Everyone at Tomshardware normally gives great feedback so I cant wait to see what the community has to say. ;)

I plan on adding a SSD in a few months, hoping to find a good deal around Christmas time on one. I am just curious, what would you change if given the opportunity?

Feels like you spent too much on the Mobo compared to the rest of the system.
But its an great build nevertheless, Kingwins PSUs are fine.

I actually planned on purchasing a cheaper Asus MB but I didnt like the layout so I spent a little more on this one. I do agree that it is more expensive than what I did want to spend.

Have you considered this EVGA: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Layouts pretty similar.

No, I did not see that Motherboard. My only concern is if I install more video cards for SLI it would block the pci express slots. It took about about a month before I could decide on a good motherboard and now I am second guessing myself lol. I will check out some reviews on the EVGA MB and then decide whether to send my Asus motherboard back. :D
