    A few Notes
    MSI Motherboard For having all x16 slots, USB 3.0 and SATA 3.0

    The low lantancy of the ram should mean quality chips. I plan on increase the timing to ensure stability. From 6-8-6-24 to 8-8-8-20 Lower Voltage Also:confused:

    Enzotech Extreme-X CPU Cooler so there's a down draft cooling the motherboard Components.

    Would love to have a Corsair Force F240 SSD drive but the Cost....:jawdrop:(Maybe a Future Upgrade later.)

    WD 1TB drive for Storage/Backup..... Would Rather have a 7,200 Rpm SAS Drive but would require a SAS/SATA Controller Card also $$$$$
    (Maybe a Future Upgrade later.)

    EVGA GeForce GTX 470 ...... Its a hot potato I know ....... but overall Nvidia write the best drivers! In short should = Stability I plan on underclocking it back down to stock speed to lower Temp. There should be extra cooling for the OC version.

    The sound card I'm still sorta not sure about....:confused:

    Sony Optiarc CD/DVD Burner ( Has NEC Chip )

    Logitech Keyboard and mouse ....... Hope they are good for Work as they are at Play!

    Why do you need 4 Pci-express slots if you are running one card.And also why the 470? is it for cuda?
    I would go for the 5870 if cuda isnt needed or else the 460 if it is needed.
    Also i would go for The Titan Fernirr.
    Why Ultimate why not go for pro?
    Get what ever dvd drive is cheapest.
    Swap the PSU out for the Corsair HX850w
