I personally believe building an x58 rig if you're going xfire and not going am3 with a 6-core is insane... but enjoy the machine. It will be a beast!

Good job on the picks. I like how you went with the agility 2 ocz. Yes, I have vertex le but they suck. I have had to and in the process of RMAing 4 vertex le's. The one I am using now is a exception. It just won't die off. I think OCZ made the vertex le an experiment since it uses the 1500 sandforce enterprise controller vs. vertex 2, agility 2, etc. sandforce 1200 mainstream controller. And the 1200 controller was adopted by more than just ocz for competitor brand ssd's whereas the 1500 was ocz only.

ok so i made a little changes. i end up picking the case from Compusa lol. yeah it was cheaper then newegg. and i end up buying a ATi5870 from this guy on ebay used for $350 its from ati not a vender. saving money there. so heres a pick to start out with. you can see the SSD on top on the box the other 5870 is being used right now till everything is done. i forgot to add a power supply so im ordering a CORSAIR HX Series CMPSU-1000HX 1000W.

I just got that case myself last week and absolutely love it, probably one of the best cases I've ever owned.

I like things ready to go ahead of time so I am not over excited when I have the pieces in place. Keeps you busy and your mind off of the cpu. Unless the wifey is keeping you busy with chores,hehehe.

two questions, is that a plush crab from half life 2? And is that your wife? If so, you know how to keep busy until the cpu gets there, hehehe.
BTW, I would stick with couriers like UPS for shipping. Even if it's standard shipping. Much more reliable than USPS or Canada Post.
