Alright, so I'm getting pretty close to finalizing everything... still waiting for some hopefully good back to school deals on parts.
Here's what I'm planning on getting:
i7 920 D0 Stepping 2.66 GHz
Asus P6T Deluxe V2
Corsair XMS3 Dominator 3X2GB 1600 8-8-8-24
Lian Li PC-p50 (but I can't find it in stock
Intel X25-M G2 80GB SSD (again, not in stock yet, but cheaper than other drives for same size)
Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 1TB HD
EVGA GeForce GTX 275
Noctua NH-U12P heatsink/fan
Nmedia C98 card reader/eSATA/firewire
Windows 7 x64 and main apps on SSD, data etc. on 1TB
Get a used ~160GB or something and put Ubuntu on as second OS (for those things that windows can't do...)
So that's pretty much it, I'm pretty excited about it, and I'm hoping to get it all for about $2000 CA, which I don't think is too bad considering...
Oh yeah, and you may notice there's no optical drive... I'm gonna grab a used DVD writer until Blu-ray gets a bit cheaper and I might actually use it...
