I have the same MB and CPU (i7-920). The 920 has a reputation as a great overclocker.

I'm with pparks1 on this one. That's the only big hole I see in the system you just listed.

Okey. I will do that. Do i keep anything installed on the SSD? as I see it's pretty small..i mean games and stuff. And it's pretty expensive too. How big SSD do I need?
So no other problems in the system? Don't want any unpleasant surprises :P

The SSD should be your boot drive and have all your programs on it. Keep the 1TB drive you listed for data storage.

Best of both worlds.

If you have $5000 to spend on a computer, an SSD is not really expensive. So, honestly...what type of budget are you really dealing with.

I can press it up under 5grand, but I don't want to. Right now with a SSD I'm tipping 4000$ I don't want to go any higher that that ^^

Games are programs.

(They're just more fun than most other ones.)

I'm in the US and couldn't be of much help. Here's a bump so maybe someone who can will be along.

Yeah, this really suck. Too bad they don't have an international site. I mean the closest I can come to this is alienware from dell, and those are over 1000$ more for the same system
