More about computer rate
  1. Better case
    PSU (Only needed 750-850 watts)
    HD6870 performs better than HD5850 and is cheaper.
    Sound cards are unnecessary with on board quality these days.
    5400rpm harddrives are slow compared to 7200rpm.
  2. Agreed with above, though at that price point you'll want to wait (a couple of weeks) for the 6970.

    Your 15.6 RPM Drive is SCSI or SAS or whatever they call it now, I don't think it will work with your mobo. At this price point, you'll want to go straight SSD for games anyway.

    Not sure how heavy you are into video editing, etc, but I wouldn't think that you would need 4 gigs or RAM per core. What programs do you edit in?
  3. Cut back on the RAM - You won't need more than 6 GB. Here is some good stuff if you want to overclock. It has low voltage and low latency. If you change your mind, you can always add more later.

    This SSD is screamingly fast and chews up the cheetah.

    Get this Noctua cooler for much much better performance.

    Skip the network adapter - the mobo has connections you need.
  4. Thanks for the tips guys. I use NCH Software to edit. Good ***.
