Let me know what Y'all Think.
I prefer Nvidia, Asus, and AMD but if someone presents a good argument then I'll go intel (I know the current build has an intel but it's an i7 with mobo SSD and ram for 700 bucks)
I like the above build , but in case it's not all ya want.... here's some options to consider
Having built w/ both the 932 and DF-85 in the last month, I can say from direct experience that the DF-85 has it all over the 932....if ya want an HAF, I'd put the HAF-X just a few points behind the DF-85 and well above the 932
The build below has CAS 7 instead of CAS 8 and also is low profile insuring it won't interfere with the CPU cooler
The EA PSU is a very good PSU but the XFX garners a 10.0 performance rating on jonnyguru ,as does the Corsair HX you originally chose, to the EA's 9.0. If you are going to overclock, and anticipate the otential of a 2nd GFX card in the future, I'd want a 10.0 rated PSU. A 9.0 I'd use for OC'ing or twin GFX but not both.
Win Pro gives ya XP mode for compatibility with older games.
Since you preferred nVidia .... the 470 is the same price as many 460's. Here's some benchmark comparisons (it's a 570 review but includes scores for both the 470 and 6870); the 470 wins most but your choice will likely depend upon what games you play.
yeah the reason I have to hold off for a couple weeks is Newegg is out of a couple pieces that I want to order in a combo. So I'll wait a few more days and I'll end up ordering about 1400-1500 worth of stuff.
