Not sure if this is the right place to ask my question, but if so, an answer or feedback would be much appreciated. Before I post what Im thinking of building, let me tell you what it will be for.

I own a web development and SEO company, we run many programs simultaneously that take up a lot of memory and require a lot of speed. as far as gaming goes if any its minimal, and wont require a whole lot. really what i need in this desktop, is SPEED, POWER, STORAGE, and MEMORY! so after much research Ive selected the following to build my computer, right now this build will cost me 1100.00 for all the parts, and i intend on assembling, and overclocking myself. It has been years since Ive built a computer, but its like riding a horse.

So without further Adue, here is the Build, your comments, suggestions, and Opinions, are welcome, also if i can save here and their, please let me know. I will be running windows 7 Ultimate

Mother Board : ASUS P6X58D-E LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Video Card : XFX HD-577A-ZNFC Radeon HD 5770 (Juniper XT) 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP

Thank you all :hello:  Also im new to raiding, hard drives but from my understanding the mother board I have chosen, is raid ready so i shouldn't need anything extra to do so, please advise

Looks good except X58 requires triple channel memory so you need 3 or 6 modules to run in triple channel mode. You only have a dual channel kit selected.
