This is what I was thinking:
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550
ASUS Maximus II Formula LGA 775 with a P45 chipset
OCZ Platinum Edition 8GB (4 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)
nVidia GTX 285
Raid 0 1TB 7200rpm drive, backing up regularly to an external drive. Haven't picked a specific one yet.
Windows 7 RC until I can buy a full copy of Win7
I'm not sure about the motherboard and memory, I had a hard time choosing one (DDR2 or DDR3)
I need to choose a power supply as well. Would a mid-tower work for this?
I've already got a monitor, keyboard, and mouse and don't want to spend more than 1200 to 1500.
