    Default PC Being Built within the next 2 weeks

    Hell everyone. I've been reading around on multiple forums, and websites including this one, on what PC components perform, are stable, and will give you satisfied graphics and performance for extreme gaming! I've been doing some shopping around and I came to the conclusion of this build here. I won't make it final until I know everything will run well with each other. I've read reviews and done my homework making sure everything is compatible with one another. I would just like some confirmation or feedback on what people think, this way I can make some final adjustments or tweaks to my list if necessary. I'm fairly new to computer terms and such, but I'm still learning. So please bare with me if I'm not exactly sure what you mean when explaining complex overclocking specs lol.

    FYI... I plan on purchasing everything on

    1) PC Case - Antec Lanboy air Blue Black / Blue Computer Modular Case
    ITEM #:N82E16811129093

    2) Mobo - ASUS Rampage III Gene LGA 1366
    ITEM #:N82E16813131658

    3) Processor - Intel Core i7-980X Extreme Edition Gulftown 3.33GHz
    ITEM #:N82E16819115223

    4) Video Card - SPARKLE Calibre Series X580 GeForce GTX 580 (Fermi) 1536MB
    ITEM #:N82E16814187127

    5) Power Supply - CORSAIR Professional Series AX1200 1200W
    ITEM #:N82E16817139014

    RAM - CORSAIR DOMINATOR 12GB (3 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
    ITEM #: N82E16820145321

    6) SSD - Mushkin Enhanced Callisto Deluxe MKNSSDCL240GB-DX 2.5" 240GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
    ITEM #:N82E16820226153

    7) Hard Drive - Western Digital Caviar Black WD6402AAEX 640GB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
    ITEM #:N82E16822136544

    8) Monitor - Asus VK278Q Black 27" 1920x1080 2ms Full HD HDMI LED BackLight
    ITEM #:N82E16824236101

    9) OS - Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
    ITEM #:N82E16832116754


    I plan on running my OS on my SSD, and my video games on my HDD. I'm not sure if it will have much of a difference performance wise on which Drive I run my video games off of though. Its why I picked the 240g SSD. I don't plan on running SLI yet, maybe in a few months I'll pick up another GTX 580, but that's down the road. If anyone has any information, tips or suggestions to maximize my gaming performance please let me know! Also too I wasn't exactly sure which OS to get for Win 7, This PC will be used for all types of games (mainly online play), and possibly and career down the line if it still holds up and runs well.

    Thanks much
