Well I'm up and running for one month straight and no problems....
Core i7 920
Biostar Tpower x58
6 gigs of G skill 1333
WD 250 gb Caviar
evga 9800 gtx+
NZXT Tempest

Ive run Crysis, GTA IV, and Assasins Creed all maxed out and my temps never went over 40 degrees.
All that on a stock cooler!
I havent built a system since the late 90's so how did I do?

Well I don't see any incompatibilities or bottlenecks, so unless I missed anything, I think you've done pretty well.

Could you post the specific temps for your components?

There isn't anything wrong with the i7 920 build, as it does out perform. If he had the money, i would of went the same way, if i was more in the budget range of 1k and less, then i would have chosen p II.

It's hard to believe but I really don't need that much storage right now. In the future I may add another in a raid setup.

Nope, I'm kind of stuck on that whole Intel bandwagon. AMD hasn't put out enough to impress me. As for the 9800gtx+, I got it for the best price, free.
