I see no problem with this rig but i just wanted to be sure.
and please go easy on me this is only my second rig.

P.S. This is a re-post because my last thread title was incorrect.

I plan to overclock just a little when i learn how.

What about uses for this build? Not sure why you'd go with the rather expensive hexacore when for most apps a $140 X4 955 would do almost as good.

Doesn't look bad, should be a fast and fun machine.

I went for the hex core so later when the tech advances i could still have i fighting chance before all of this stuff bites the dust. Plus hexcore give me BIIIG bragging rights.

But the main thing i want to know is al of these parts will work together right?

Did you read the latest "best CPU's..." article?

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-cpu-overcloc...

Most apps, including games, do not use more than 3 cores currently. In the case of the 1090T vs the AMD quad cores, tests show that the quad cores are actually slightly better for gaming.
The only advantages shown by the hexacores are in highly threaded apps such as photo/video editing. This is why I was asking about how you will use the machine.

I don't see any quad cores "biting the dust" anytime soon. I am running a two year old AM2+ X4 940 overclocked to 3.6 Ghz and I can run any software I want. The point is, if you really want the 1090T I say go for it. Just be sure what exactly you're bragging about. You can get similar performance for less though.
