I have recently been looking over different websites and forums and decided to try to build my own computer. With the recent recall of the SB chips I have had to revise some of the parts I want, so please, any suggestions would be appreciated.

I have picked out some parts and was looking for advice on them:

Case: Cooler Master 922 Mid Tower :

PSU: XFX 650W Atx12V Crossfire/Sli ready:

CPU: Core i7-950 3.06GHz:

MoBo: Sabertooth x58 LGA 1366:

HSU: Cooler Master Hyper 212:

Memory: G Skill NQ 12GB DDR 1600 (PC3 12800):

HDD: Samsung F3 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache:

GPU: Gigabyte Radeon 6950 2GB:

Any and all suggestions are welcome. Thank you.

I'd personally go with GTX570 over the 6950, but, looks solid....order it!

I swear I just replied to a post that had the same specs.

Well, the GPU really depends on the games. If more than half your games play better on geforce, get geforce. What games are they?
