that will make for a sweet system, however i would see about finding anything but seagate for the hdd. seagate hdd's have a tendency of running very hot. as for running ati over nvidia i would stick with the nvidia, better driver support. i have a friend running the 560 ti and loves it.

I follow your exact reasoning :-D
I already have the Seagate thats on there, and it runs quite cool

Not sure exactly what kind of monitor you are looking for. Check Here see if you find something you like. I have an Asus VW246H and I like it.

I have GSkill Ripjaws on a AMD board which was designed to be used with Intel CPU's and it is solid and quick. 7.5 WEI, if it means anything.
On the monitor there seems to be an issue with Samsung and Microsoft which causes different color profiles to pop up among other conflicts. I have a Samsung and have experience.
My nVIDIA GTX460 does run kind of hot just running a nVIDIa screensaver, went over 98C.
Check your chosen mobo approved RAM list (QVL) too even though those are not always complete. I'm also using a Seagate HDD and have had no problems with heat, usually 32C-35C, depending on ambient temps.

Britton30 is right about the Seagates. I have 2 in my machine that never get over about 33.

C98c on a screensaver?!?!?! How? Maybe i shoul get the Windforce 470
And about the mobo: Is there any better and stronger one for the same price?
How about AMDs bulldozer? Will it be better than 1155?
And how about the life of these parts? I dont want to have to RMA anything until a long time after purchase.
Again, thank all of you for your great help.

I don't think you will find a MB with the features of the one you chose for the same price. As far as longevity. Who knows. They haven't been out long enough to compare. I don't believe anyone knows about Bulldozer. I'm waiting for it to come out and see some reviews. It is supposed to be released in June last I heard.

Just remember, whatever you choose, there will be a better one out within 6 months. If Bulldozer is better than Sandy Bridge, then what will Ivey Bridge be like. It is supposed to be out later this year. And what about the Intel Z68 MB? Will that be better than these? Just choose something that will do what you need it to do, and enjoy it. Whatever you chose will be beaten out within 6 months.

Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 to Build 7601? An Icon Pack was saying install on to 7600 only and after I checked my regedit, I learned that I have 7601 (Probably SP1, I don't know). Would I have any problems if I install the icon pack? Thanks.
