looks good to me mate. dont really see a problem with it at all.
Good processor; good motherboard; should have got low profile Vengeance RAM because most 3rd party heatsinks for your CPU will bump into them; case is a little cheap considering the price of the rest of your components; if that is a 1000W PSU then that is twice as much as you need; PCI-E SSDs I know nothing about; good graphics card (6950?).
It should run very fast your new computer, for a very long time
EDIT: just read in another thread that there can be issues booting from PCI-E SSDs. Might want to check into that unless you're using another drive as your OS drive.
Bede do you got a link on that?
Thanks for your reply Bede.
I will look into the booting problems on the SSDs. Also the other remarks are helpfull.
just put it all together, looks like everything is running properly.
heres a pic of the build
just need that GPU and i will be a happy gamer!
Is the 600w modXstream Pro powerfull enough to comforably and reliablly power the following?
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 2.83ghz (stock speeds)
ASUS P5Q Pro Turbo
2*2048Mb OCZ PC2 9200
Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 6450 1024MB GDDR3 PCI-Express Graphics Card
2x Seagate Barracuda Green 2TB SATA 6Gb/s Hard Drive
2x Samsung SH-S222AB/BEBE 22x DVD±RW SATA ReWriter
It's the 4 drives that are concerning me really. What do you all reckon?
It's more than enough.

This guide really helped me construct my new PC, thank you!
