I just want to know that this system will work once i get all the parts lol
well anyway
motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
(http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...)
processor: Intel Core i7-950 Bloomfield 3.06GHz 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core Processor BX80601950
(http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...)
power supply: CORSAIR HX Series CMPSU-1000HX 1000W ATX12V 2.2 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply
(http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...)
computer case: DangerDen - Torture Rack
(http://www.dangerden.com/store/dd-torture-rack.html)
ram: 2 * samsung 512mb pc2-3200u-333-10-A1 (from a dell deminision 4700)
pny 2gb(no idea speed has a serial number of 64boqjthe-hs) has the same slots as the other ram though
heatsink: Thermaltake Frio Overclocking-Ready Intel Core i7 (six-core ready) & i5 Compatible Five 8mm Heatpipes Dual 120mm Fans Intel & AMD Universal CPU Cooler CLP0564
(http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...)

hdd:
seagate barracuda 7200.12 sata
seagate barracuda 7200.7 sata
thermal compound: comes with fan
OS: Gentoo Linux
video card: nvidia gtx 220 pci-e

Notes: i know the power supply is probably overpowered since i want to do over clocking and add components in the future i made it about 100w more powerful than what i think it should be

I'm pretty sure it will all work but i only really know the software side of a computer so if you hardware people could help me out that would be great =)
if you feel im forgetting something just ask

Wow - you really need to add spaces between each part to make it legible.....

I can see though that your old DDR2 ram is not going to work with a DDR3 i7 build...

1000w is more than you will likely ever need, especially with a crappy graphics card like a GT 220. 1000w is more for 3 top range gpus in trifire or tri-sli.....

Really the motherboard & CPU are the only decent choices - everything else is a big mess to be honest.

Best to have a quick look through other posts that suit your budget and start again.

Sorry if this seems rude just trying to be honest.

Peace

thanks for the help =)
i already bought the gt220 so i probably should of told you guys that. I do plan on upgrading/sli so yes it will be upgraded in the future
ok so i need better ram what about
ram: OCZ Gold 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Desktop Memory Model OCZ3G1066LV4GK
(http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...)
just picking because its cheap if you can find better ram for lower price that would be most helpful =)
i dont really have a defined budget just making the rest very cheap will upgrade them later.

What's this build going to be used for?

That Kingston 3 GB kit is fine. It's not particularly fast, but you're not going to notice the difference in clock speed real-world usage. You may notice the difference between 3 GB and 6 GB if you're doing anything particularly memory-intensive.

Here's a 6 GB kit for $80 with free shipping that you might be interested in. ($21 more for double the RAM.)

Basicly everything gentoo linux system so lots of compiling blender for 3d rendering video gaming with wine or windows 7

If you're going to be doing 3D rendering, I'd recommend trying to fit 6 GB RAM into your budget if at all possible.

it will run in single channel mode, and affect your performance.

The difference between running in single-channel and triple-channel is only going to make a difference for 3D rendering. You could try looking up benchmarks, but I wouldn't expect the performance difference to be more than 4-5%.

I'm unsure why atotalnoob objected to the 3-stick 6 GB kit I linked, though. I can understand if $80 is too expensive for you right now, ownsyouall.
