Hello everyone,

I've saved up some of that well earned money and decided to purchase a new computer.
So I compiled my very own 'supercomputer' list :D and I need some feedback on it.
I work a lot with computers, but i'm not very techy about them, so I'd like to know if all part are well suited/compatible/... you know.

Main purpose is some gaming (Guildwars, C&C), coding and general desktop work.
Yea it's some overkill but like I said, I've saved up and like to give myself a treat.

Nice rig. The first thing I noticed other than the vid card was only one HD. In your description you said, "No. 6) HARD DRIVES" but you only list it as one. For that machine I would consider two drives even if due to cost you go with two smaller drives. One for backups and storage and one for the main OS and apps. I run two SATAs and use the first partition on drive 2 for the page/swap file. The rest is storage and some game installations. Just a thought.
