Agreed, don't focus so much on the WEI. A 1090T should perform quite nice. I mean, my Q9550 from 2 years ago gets a as you can see this WEI isn't really indicative of true performance as a 2 year old newer CPU should really outperform an older one.

Get a good monitor with an IPS panel rather than a TN panel. Here's two great value IPS monitors. They are 23" which is now the standard 16:9 .
A 24" 16:10 monitor will cost you a lot more and you might find it as cheap to look at both of these companies 27" models.

Dell UltraSharp U2311H 23inch Monitor Details

These retail at around 200 which is amazing for IPS technology.

I don't plan on spending that much on a monitor. 22" is fine for me.

The board is sweet, I am just playing with the Crosshair V as I started a review of it today.

The Vengeance might only net you a 7.8 but as said earlier, its just WEI. Now, you will be set for Bulldozer when ever AMD gets off their butts.

You want to make this new system really snap to then you really should invest in a small, say 64 or 80GB SSD for the OS, that will be the best bang for the buck upgrade you could do now.

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.
