im just getting the final part of my money together and im buying:

Thermaltake VA7000BWA Full Tower Black Shark Case (when its released)
Thermaltake W0010 PSU 480W Xaser Silent Black
AMD Athlon 64 FX55 1MB L2Cache 939pin Retail
K8N DIAMOND (when its released)
OCZ Platinum EL Dual Channel Kit 2x512MB PC3200 CL 2-2-2-5 Revision 2
PCIe GF6800 GT (2 of when they are released and going to use SLI)
Thermaltake CL-W0005 Big Water (water cooling for CPU)
Lite-On SOHW-1633S 16x Dual DVD-R/RW (Dual Layer)
Lite-On 52x32x52x CD-RW - Black Bezel - Retail Box
Creative Labs Sound Blaster Audigy2 ZS 7.1 PCI
Seagate Barracuda ST3200822AS 200Gb 8Mb Cache 7200RPM
Logitech OEM PS2 Black Deluxe Keyboard
Logitech PS2/USB MX-510 2 Button Optical Mouse

im undecided how many 200 giggers to get. maybe 5 and go for the full 1tb and RAID them. do any of you see any problems with that setup as i want to get it right as its going to cost me about 1500. Bout $2500-3000 U.S.D for the components.
and are there any components which i could improve. i want to get a monster done :)

Are you taking Raid 5? That'd be a good call for five drives. The price/performance is there over running a 0+1 setup. You'll need a solid (and likely expensive) card that is raid 5 capable
