|I saw this thread earlier but couldn't respond. We were under a simulated dirty bomb attack (yes, really!). I checked the links in the OP but generally don't get into recommendations for cases, mice, keyboards, bluray drives, etc unless I see something way out of whack.|
The main components (CPU, board, RAM, video card, PSU) are what I generally concentrate on. BTW, where is the video card in your list? The board is choice is OK but as grasshopper said, there are newer better versions of the AMD southbridge available...SB710 or SB750. There's OCZ RAM that's cheaper than the Kingston & you can probably do better on the PSU. For one thing 850W is unnecessary & I'm not sure of the quality of Powercool, plus I wouldn't even consider a PSU without 1st seeing the specs.
