Using mainly for video decoding/internet/photo editing/video editing

Want to overclock sometimes to about 4.7 or 4.8, will leave around 4.5 most of time if possible.

Already have:
monitor
2500K
1TB WD FAEX HD 64mb 6gig

would like firewire front panel, usb, etc

would like to maybe save money and get a second video card to use one and encode with one if possible.

Any compatibility issues, suggestions.

Budget $900 for:
Asus Motherboard P8Z68-V Pro/Gen3 $204.99
16Gig Ram Ripsaws X 1600 $88.99
Case Antec 900? $99.99

This is a 90gb SSD and is big enough for the OS and your main application , the rest can go on the HDD. The read/write speeds of this SSD are much faster then the Crucial. I have the 180gb version and have no problems with anything I do.

I know it's the same price but it is a far better psu then the OCZ.

You may not need all 16gb of ram so start out with 8gb and if you need more then add another 8gb set.
The total savings from these changes is $134 and add to that the $71 from the budget ($900-$828.93=$71) and you have enough for a video card which I didn't see listed.
