I am looking to build a very quiet but fast system (some gaming, photo work) to last me some time and would appreciate some expert input before I pull the trigger.

Power Supply

ASUS P8P67 Deluxe REV3.0 ATX LGA1155 P67 3PCI-E16 2PCI-E1 2PCI Sandy Bridge B3 Motherboard

Intel Core i7 2600K Quad Core Unlocked Hyperthreading Processor LGA1155 3.4GHZ Sandy Bridge 8MB

Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 Vengeance 8GB 2X4GB DDR3-1600 CL9-9-9-24 Dual Channel Memory Kit

Suggestions on a HDD that's quiet?

the 6950(2gb) simply rules in most cost/performance ratios right now.....

The Samsung F3 drives are high performing/low cost 1 TB drives.....

I'd also recommend both the 6950 2GB and the Samsung F3s.

The 6950 has very nice triple monitor support right out of the box. You'd need 2 Nvidia cards to get 2 monitors, which was slightly frustrating...
