New build, feedback would be appreciated


Feb 6, 2007
I'm thinking this rig is gonna be pretty solid but just wanted to see what some of you guys think. This PC is going to double as my TV in my bedroom (tiny freakin college apartment bedroom) and also will be used for lots of gaming and video editing. Gonna be running 2x 22" LG monitors which I'm getting from Best Buy using a friends discount. Let me know what you think or if there are some things that I could improve upon.

this is almost exactly the same as my new build except i have a gtx instead of the ultra, and i have crucial ballistix memory instead, and im buying an aftermarket heatsink since i plan on overclocking to 2.8 (or 3.0Ghz if i get lucky). i'm going with the thermalight ultra-120 extreme
