I have done some research and was wondering if this rig I came up with wasn't over the top in any aspect:
The motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
The processor http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...\
The video card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
The case http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
The D-RAM http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
The PSU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
The HDD http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
All tied into a Windows 7 Professional for future D-RAM upgrades.
I have this all on Newegg.com shipping cart with tax and shipping for $1,763.40.
I wanted to leave room for future upgrade such as D-RAM, Processor, Video card, and possibly a water cooling system.

So whats the damage how'd I do?

So far pretty good but you should *NEVER* pay $165 for RAM - that's an absolute waste. The Dominator is nothing more than an expensive marketing gimmick that looks cool. You can get RAM for way less than that: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

You won't ever need more than 16GB of RAM for now - even hardcore Photshop and CAD renderings won't use more than 12GB at the most.

And then add an SSD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

And an aftermarket fan for that 3570K: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

That 670 will handle everything for the next couple years. The 670 and 680 use the same GK109 processor and the 670 is $100 cheaper.

And I don't know how to configure and/or setup 2 storage systems on a computer. I know how to install them I'm just unsure about how it works. Does the SSD and the HDD show up as two different drives under Computer?
