Doesn't seem boring to me, more like the best bang for the money.

good system

but i would recomend Thermalright Ultra-120 extreme instead of Sythe Ninja 120mm HSF.

Will cost you about the same, and ultra extreme cools allot better.

I was considering that HSF....but while I was shopping newegg popped an instant $20.00 savings on the Ninja, so in the cart it went...
I'm sure the Ninja will be more than enough cooling for where I hope to run....(3 to 3.2ghz)

Very nice choices. I was just about to do something similar to that but decided to hold off for either the quad intel price drops or barcelona which ever makes sense as far as $$ to performance. The ststem that I have has been really good to me so I can wait awhile longer. Again nice setup,have fun.

That's an awesome "Boring" PC. If Intel had the 4mb Cache on the 6300/6400 when I made my build 5 months ago, I definately would have gone with one of those.

Have fun!

I only say "boring" because some ppl here have some seriously "not boring" monster rigs
I did a few of those in the past....now I'm only looking for solid gaming performance and decent OCing. Hell,I'm not even going to touch that Foxy GTX because 630/2000 is where I'd want to run if I clocked it myself

I'm with ya on that. I have enough other money sinks besides my PCs. I almost always go for the "best bang".
