Hey everyone,

I'm planning to do a new build and I was looking for any input. Planning to OC and eventually WC.

CPU: E6600

GPU: 8800GTX SLi

Mobo: Looks like EVGA 680i SLi is best? I like my X-fi though :(

HDD: 2x raptor for raid boot maybe, some storage drives. (6 total)

CASE: Silverston TJ09(black or silver?!?!) + Tons of nexus 120mm silent fans

DISCS: Old BENQ DVD-RW.

PSU: Turbo-Cool 1KW-SR

RAM: Don't know what to get - 2gb 800mhz or 2gb 1000mhz?

Think that's everything.

You should be able to use SLI and your X-fi. They've released a bios that fixes the issue I believe.

Guess I'll need to figure out how to make a usb drive bootable.

Any tips on the ram?

I'm hoping to OC and eventually WC

I've seen some mention doing it with a bootable CD.

Thanks! Doesn't sound like it will be too bad then...

I've read some places that the middle case fan of the TJ09 cannot be installed with 88GTX SLi - Does anyone know if this is true?

I've also read the HDD noise is bad (worse than P180 which I have now) so I'm a little disappointed about that. It really doesn't seem like there's a better case than the TJ09 though.
