RE: Build
Oh awesome (: Thanks!

Okay so I changed my build a bit.

Swapped the Patriot RAM for the Ripjaws (45$!) and instead of two video cards, I'm just getting one first. Also, would it be smart to get a larger SSD if I have a lot of programs like photoshop and sony vegas?

Thanks!

Oh also, what's the difference between the XFX and Sapphire Radeon HD 6870 cards? XFX has a lifetime warranty while the Sapphire only has a 2 year one. The XFX is only 5$ more with rebate. Which should I get?

RE: Build
-frown- The XFX got sold out. On average, how long does it take for newegg to restock their products?

RE: Build
The cards from XFX and Sapphire (or most brands for that matter) are all roughly based on the same reference design, so really, it makes no difference which brand you pick.

As for NewEgg restocking, it really varies a lot. Could be a few hours, days, weeks or perhaps never.

For the SSD, to give you an idea, I'm using 44GB with Windows 7 Professional, PhotoShop CS5, HAWX and the basics (Web browser, anti-virus, etc.), so 59.6GiB (the actual capacity that you get under Windows with the 64GB SSD) might be a bit tight with Sony Vegas and whatever files that you're be working on. Consider upgrading to 90 or 120/128GB.

RE: Build
Thanks so much (:!

So I think I might wait a few days and see if the XFX comes back in stock, if not, I'll just get the Sapphire.

What 120GB SSD would you recommend?

RE: Build
I'd go for the Crucial M4 128GB, which is currently $200 at Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Lexar-Media-Crucia...004W2JKZI/

It's one of the fastest SSDs on the market, with good reliability and a good price. If I was on the market for a 120/128GB SSD, that's what I'd get.

The Crucial m4 is always my recommendation for a current-generation SSD. Second!
