Literally just placed my first order. I've left out a few key components, IE graphics card etc, as I'll be buying these separately. I intend on going for the RADEON 7950; specifically this one http://www2.hardwareversand.de/3072+...t.changed=1&lb (Looking towards upgrading to CROSSFIRE 7950's at some stage) -- I also left out coolers. I'm not sure how necessary they are, but as I would like to overclock a bit I guess I'll need them. I'm not sure on the case compatability with the Corsair H100, but I think I will purchase either a Corsair H100 or H80 in the near future... unless someone talks me out of it!
Anyway, here is the spec I will be slotting the 7950 into. I'd love to hear your thoughts, if you'd change anything or if you have any recommendations for additions/alterations - I'm not very technically minded, but my aim here is to create an immensely powerful, good looking and future proof system; you can let me know how I'm getting along!
I'll be using my older GTX 285 when it arrives. Soon after it will be a single 7950, and maybe after that a CROSSFIRE 7950 setup.
