Hey everyone,

My wife and I are going to build new PC's for ourselves next week. We are gamers, and I do some video editing. With the hard drive shortage, we'll be re-using our existing hard drives for storage for now.

Here's the list:

Looks pretty close to my future build. If you plan on overclocking go for the i7-2600k. I'm going for the Corsair 1050W Pro psu.

If you don't have plans to do a SLI you don't need more than 600w power supply.I like what you choosed there.

Awesome, thank you very much. :) 

We plan on going SLI after a year or so to get more time out of the machine before we rebuild.
