  1. Great build! Some suggestions...

    You don't need the sound card. There's no noticeable difference between sound from a card and built in.

    You should go for the Ripjaws X series rather than the Ripjaws series. Ripjaws X looks better (that's the only reason I recommend it. :D )

    Go for the ASUS P8Z68-V. It's newer and a bit cheaper.
  2. Also the HAF X is a huuuge case, and expensive. I think a HAF 922 is plenty of room, maybe a 932 if you need extra harddrive space etc. They all provide very good airflow.
  3. Xonar DX sounds way better than the mobo, what a joke. Its a night and day difference.

    Awesome build! Thanks for getting my note Santa, I will be waiting for it!
  4. The mobo I picked is cheaper than the P8z68 v
  5. Oh.

    The P8Z68-V is cheaper than the P8P67 in my country. :D
