Default Re: I need some advice.

Okay, so after sitting at my computer for many hours searching online I think I found what I want. But, since I'm such a newb, I need you guys to tell me whether or not this is all compatible and what else I need to add to my list.
I'm pretty sure most of it is compatible, but it is always good to be positive.

SO PLEASE, look this over carefully and give me input and help. I will be indebted to you forever.

Alright, here is what I want to get:
-OS - Windows Vista Premium
-Case - Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Case
-Mobo - GIGABYTE GA-X38-DS4 LGA 775 Intel X38 ATX Intel Motherboard
-CPU - Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Processor
-RAM/mem - G.Skill 4GB DDR2-800MHz CL4 2x2 Gb
-Hard Drive - Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 250 Gb 7200RPM 8Mb SATA 3Gb OEM
-Video Cards - Dual HD 3870 crossfire
-Power Supply - 700W GameXStream PSU
-Sound Card - Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtremegamer
-Monitor - Ultra Sharp 19-inch Dell Flat Panel LCD 8ms response time
-Input Devices - I already have a Logitech G15 Keyboard and a Razer Copperhead that I just got.
-Speaker - Logitech R-20

I'm probably going to overclock it also.

Edit: Oh, and am I covered cooling-wise?

- Q6600 @ 3.06GHz @ 1.2V - EVGA GTX 260 216 801/1338/1727 - ABIT IP35 Pro -
- ZALMAN 9700 - CM Stacker 830 - BENQ 24" LCD - 500 GB Seagate HDD -
