    I fully intend to OC the CPU/GPU. For this build, I intend to upgrade in about 12-18 months and reuse at least the power supply and case. These is also $80 worth of rebates to be redeemed on this build. So, if I get those, I can spend it on a SSD. Windows 7 Ultimate is student price.

    Would opt for maybe a single HD 6950 now and add a second in the future.
