    Default Final Build Specifications

    Here is my final build specs for my new computer. IF anything screams out "no" please tell me. Also. I am still on the verge about 4870x2. I'm not sure I need it/it's worth it. I plan to CF in the future. So I would end up with 2 4870's anyway. And I've seen not much performance gain in benchmarks with 4870x2 X2. So I'm not sure about the Graphics Cards yet... everything else is pretty much finalized. I
    I won't be using a 30inch monitor. I was thinking 24-28 with 1900x1200 native resolution.
    I will be doing some gaming, but mostly using it for just about everything.
    I will be learning to overclock with this rig, That's why i chose the Rampage Formula.

    Thanks in advance.

    Antec 900
    Corsair 750TX
    ASUS Rampage Formula x48
    Diamond 4870 XOC (I MAY be able to afford 4870x2, but I don't feel I need it)
    OCZ Reaper HTC DDR2-800 2x2GB. (Should I get another pair to make 8 GB Total)
    Xigmatek HDT-S1283
    Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit

    I'm so eager, hopefully you will respond before I put all this on my credit card!

    Just my two cents here

    No need for a QX anything. The other CPU's will overclock just the same without the X in the name

    and without the x3 in the price tag!

    although the extremes have an unlocked multiplier which makes OCing much less dependant on the mobo and means you can reach the chips full potential, but a Q9550 have more than enough potential to get around 4GHz... for about $750 less
