Well, if that's the best you could manage...

I'm kidding - that looks like a terrific computer! Are you a gamer? It would be a shame to not give that video card a good workout.

...and the CPU.

Are you planning on upgrading your monitor as well to make the most of the 6970?

An 1090T is only good for 7.5 at stock clocks. Then again it's only the WEI, so it's nothing to be worried about

Either way it's a good new build which you'll enjoy

Fluffy,
That is going to be a crazy fast system. I would consider the investment of a SSD drive if you can afford it. Why fresh install everything onto a 16mb cache spinner? at the very least invest in a smaller and faster spinner with 64mb cache and then place all the data on the 1/2 TB. Oh and I just got two new 23" LG LED's and they're very nice for the money my only gripe and it's really a non issue is there isn't vesa mounts so I have to just use the OEM stands...oh darn. Another idea is go with two more LG 19's as they have to be very inexpensive and run them all in Eyefinity if you have the real estate.

Looking for opinions on this PC.
My desktop PC is getting on in years - it's a 3GHz P4 I bought back in '05 or so. I've got a good NVidia card in it and 3G of RAM, and there's still quite a bit it can do, but it really is starting to cause me some headaches. I'm in the market for a new desktop, and in my shopping around, I've come...
