I lost my thread.

I made a few changes and would like you to rate this build. I plan to overclock to about 4ghz-4.2ghz. The system needs to be FAST. I plan to have my dad use this for 6+ years with no problem.

NCIX had a deal on intel 520, but they ran out, so I switched to crucial m4 at the same price as the 520 was.

No GPU required, no gaming except Lord of Ultima strategy mmo and chess titans.

I chose the source 210 elite because it appears as a business style case, with usb 3.0 on the header, nearly tool-less design, and no side panel window

We need to order before every price fluctuates again.

Rate with high expectations.

i would replace that thermaltake psu with something else. i cant find any reviews on it. also any reason for the 21" monitors? for $10 more you could get 23" monitors. you can actually get 23" acer monitors for the same price but they have horrible reviews on newegg.

I try to stay away from monitors that get bad reviews involving small viewing angle or screwed up colors

edit: nevermind, my bad
