Default Upgraded System Specs

I'm going back to school, so I figured I should get a new computer. My current computer is 4 years old, so hopefully the upgrade will be noticable

Case: Silverstone TJ07
Power Supply: Seasonic S12 SS650HT
Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-X38-DS4
CPU: Q6600
Heatsink/Fan: Scythe SCINF-1000
RAM: 2 x TWIN2X4096-6400C5 (8GB total)
Video Card: BFG 8800GTS-512MB
Hard drive: Raptor 150GB

No new monitor, I have a Dell 2405 and I can't imagine needing more than that for the moment.

Your new rig should serve you well for years.

I wanted to get the TRUE but newegg didn't have it and I couldn't find anyone on pricegrabber that carried it. If I'm not 100% satisfied with the Infinity I will either look for a place that carries the TRUE or maybe go with the new Scythe Zipang 140mm monster. Someone posted some pretty impressive results at xtremesystems.

I thought about it and decided RAM is so cheap right now I might as well fill my mobo up. It will probably be another 3-4 years before I upgrade again and I'm guessing 8GB will be standard within that timeframe.

And thanks

Just got the TJ07 today. The rest of the stuff got sent to the wrong city so err maybe tomorrow...

In the mean time, a little compare and contrast with my old Antec Sonata case.
