Build, it, yourself.

-Save money
-Better quality
-Attain knowledge


2TB WDC-Black: No, get two Samsung HD103SJ(s) and you can save around $70
Windows 7 Ultimate: No, save money by getting Professional or even Home-Premium.
X-Fi Fatal1ty Titanium: No, $200 for a sound-card? Serious? Get a decent motherboard and use the onboard 8-channel.
Blu-ray burner: Unless you plan on burning Blu-ray disks then this really is a waste of money.
Kingston HyperX: Get G.Skill RipjawsX or some good Corsair. 16GB? Kingston is fair though.
GTX580 SLI: A single GTX580 should keep you going for some 4 years at 1920x1200, but I don't know what resolution you're at?
1.2Kw TTT: There are much better brands, get Seasonic/Corsair/XFX/Antec etc. They are some great examples of quality.

Thanks for the great help! WR2, what a waste of a post.
March 12, 2011 8:11:41 PM

Man you could build a monster for around 2 grand have you considered building it yourself.
March 12, 2011 8:26:06 PM

Hey chris, Yea ive thought about it, I may even do it, I only listed that spec from a site, to get a list of the best hardware, which is why i created this thread haha.

Im just not sure which GPU, CPU, Motherboard etc to go for.
March 12, 2011 8:42:57 PM

Asus P8P67-Pro
i7-2600K
GTX580 (perhaps a second later if needed)
8gb/12gb/16gb of some G.Skill or Corsair (maybe Kingston or Mushkin)
Antec/Enermax/Seasonic/XFX/Corsair/PC-P&C power supply (something big)
A good eATX case
Intel 510 or Crucial C300? Samsung HD103SJ(s)

Great build there.
March 12, 2011 9:17:47 PM

Thanks man! Im debating on the one you just posted and the one i posted orgnally.

And also an overclocked i7-2600k is better then 2 x Intel Xeon X5650 2.66GHz @ 4.00GHz

? thanks
March 12, 2011 9:23:18 PM

A baby could overclock Sandy Bridge i5/i7 to 4.5GHz apparently. :) 
March 12, 2011 9:30:16 PM

Why not adding a Silverstone mfp51? Thing looks quite cool.
