Just want to say thanks to all the help I got from everyone in helping choose the rig, I wanted to run it on crazy high settings but from the looks of it I am going to be able ot run it at pretty good settings and just live with it. There are a lot of conflicting stories about what can run the game on highest setting and what can't so I went middle of the road. This rig is a pure gaming rig in my media room, so here it is.........

I am going to pretty heavily OC both the CPU and GPU so I got that much of a PSU. Liquid cooling was a "free" upgrade but i figured it would help with the OC.
Motherboard seems to be OC friendly and relatively easy to use. Also crossfire compatiable in case I ever want to toss in another 5850, not sure if I will.
Got the wireless adaptor card since everything else in the media room is wireless and don't want to have to pay U-verse to set up a router in there. And the Bluetooth will be for the keyboard since I sit back from the screen about 15 feet or so, and I am going to run awireless XBOX controller as well, just like the controller feel better.
Anyway, pretty stoked about it coming. I had to pay a little extra for it to get here before the release but I just did some snooping around and got a discount code for 5% off online.
If anyone plans on ordering from CyberPowerPC.com then use SPRING0410 and you get another 5% off, hope that helps someone out.
