So that's what that build was for (you showed me the picture a few weeks back).
Wait, Squall-Leonhart can't build his own? Is this being done due to cheaper cost or something?
The build looks good, but the CPU cooler sticks out as a little weak amongst those parts. If you're getting 12GB of RAM and that kind of motherboard, surely you can do better than that on the cooler. Also, wasn't the GTX285 replaced by the GTX295? I haven't kept up with nVidia's lineup, but I thought that's how things went.
The cooler is more then capable. I've checked it out thoroughly (Besides, HT is going off right away, so there goes most of the heat)
The 295 is 2x GTX 260, its longer then the 285, and won't fit in the case. the 285 is the current single core king.
Virtualization projects which require alot of ram.Can't say I would have done the same case. NZXT's are chinsey. The rest is nice, though. WTF are you going to do with 12gb of ram?
Video games are only set to use more and more ram, consider 12GB's well and truly future proof for a good while.
