I already have an SSD that will go with it, so I won't need one of those.
This is my first build, I've always bought Alienwares before this, this is just meant to be mid-budget.

One of the 2500k/P67 mainboards are normally a better choice for an interneded gaming system, IMO

Most AM3 cpus are handily outframed by 20-50% margins by the 2500k/combo; in fact, the X6 will be outframed normally by an X4 at the same clockspeed due to OS overhead.

First of all replace the AMD mobo and X6 with a P67 and 2500k, it's faster and newer.

Second of all 1000w PSU???
YOU ONLY NEED 650W for that thing!

Thirdly, DDR3 1333 CL9 is mediocre, get a better 8GB kit with at least DDR3 1600 CL9 or 8
OR just get 4GB DDR3 1600 CL6 Ripjaws X, half the amount of memory yet twice as fast!

If you don't plan to unlock the video card into a HD 6970 or use multiple monitors you can get this card, quieter and silent. Also lifetime warranty provide you register it on the XFX site within 10 days.
