Hello I about to list the parts I have compiled for my first PC that I will personally be building. I am in Iraq and plan to use a small bit (5k max) of my cash on this new system. I have two months before I will be back in the states and I plan to do whatever I can to make sure I am getting top notch for gaming power with my money.

Please leave me your opinons on what could be changed to increase quality and performance. Thanks

List:

Case: CM HAF 932

PS: 1200W PC & Power Cooling ATX12V SLI Ready

Video: 2x BFG GTX 285 SLI

RAM: 12GB (6x2GB) Corsair DDR SDRAM 1600

Mobo: Asus P6T LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX

Proc: Intel i7 920 Nehalem

Alternate cooling: Noctua NH-U12P CPU Cooler

HD: 300G 10k RPM WD

Monitor: Asus 24" HDMI LCD

DVD/CDROM: Asus 22x DVD Burner w/ Lightscribe SATA

I plan to duel boot XP Pro, and Vista Ult. 64-Bit (Gonna need to learn how)

Everything here was listed in the price to include the OS

With all this I was sitting at around 3.4k with all parts being from Newegg

If something does not match up compatibility wise, and you notice please let me know.

Thanks
