    Umm, I think that money maybe for higher education, not a plaything. It just seems like a big sum for a b-day gift to me.

    I can see a few areas where you can cut costs, by quite a bit in some cases while keeping a top end system.
    -First off, a 7800GTX in SLI is for very serious gamers (with more money than sense). I'd recommend getting a single 7800GT or two 6800GTs in SLI.
    -Skip the Audigy 2 and go for the SoundBlaster X-FI Platinum for the money you plan to spend. It's way better. It comes out next month.
    -Go for a DVD+/-RW DL Drive instead of just a DVD ROM.
    -Just get the 250gb HDD or two smaller ones. Nobody needs 400gb right now unless you're doing video editing.
    -Liquid Cooling may be unneccessary.
    -Quality RAM can be bought for much cheaper. In fact Corsair sells 2x 512mb Dual Channel DDR for $160 CND.
    http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=66936
    -Third party chipset coolers are probably unneccessary.
    -HDD Coolers may be unneccessary.
    -Lian Li cases are very nice but overpriced. Cases by Thermaltake for example are great and cost a fraction of the price.
    -Slot protectors are unneccessary.
    -Cathode lights are a nice touch but are often a waste of money and valuable PSU wattage.
    -You don't need that much Arctic Silver. The 12g tube if for custom builders. It does 12-15 CPU cores. You're buying four! That's enough to do an army of 100 computers! A single 3.5g tube is more than enough.

    That's all I can suggest for now. No use blowing money on things you don't really need.

    You see this is why kids shouldn't have money.
    Invest and use it for a down payment on a house.

    what's the use of your computer?
    for game?
    for graphic?
    for benchmarks?
    for multimedia?
    need oc?
    need sli?
    need sataII?

    My parents would kill me if I spent fourty grand on expensive toys. I'm lucky though having Scottish ancestry. If I'm about to make a foolish purchase, the cheap gene kicks in. Did I say that? You bet I did. :D

    Lad,
    I think your getting Scots confused with another race. if you were Scottish you would be down at the pub each day buying millions o nips of whiskey, then getting kicked out for trying to chat up someones sheep. :p
    Seriously thou, you should try and use the main bulk of that dosh in getting yourself a degree. It will definitely “open doors” for you, unless you live in my city where theres no real good job for anyone with an IQ greater than 7 and, who could spell there name . ;)

    ps , If your going to upgrade, then please give me your old pc since we could be very distant relatives :p j/k

    LMAO! :D

    @r0k0 : If you really need something better for games, ust invest in a new GFX and/or CPU. But don't waste all that money into a PC, that would be totally stupid.
    As the others say, you should keep it for your future.

    17? Really? I thought you were like 12.

    The money is burning a whole in your pocket, so to speak. You can put it to much better use than blowing it all on a PC. There is more to life than computers.

    Did u SMS this msg ??? :) *only fkng wit ya!*

    That spec is good. Change the 4000 to a FX55 and get a 500gb hard drive. And get proper water cooling too (Danger Den stuff)

    If you need some idea of what danger den stuff to get, PM me.

    BTW, if you wanna spend loads on PC stuff, then spend spend spend...youre 18 years old, and I'm sure most people here were 18 once...I bet they didnt ALL think of college, houses etc and may have been frivilious!

    What other race would you be refering too? :D Quit trying to kid yourself, you know it be true. I'm part English too, (gasp!) so I don't do the other stuff.

    I'm just west of Mississauga.
