    After giving it some serious thought, I think I'm going to stick with Windows 7 as my OS until Windows 8 has had a good shake down period. I can always upgrade to it once all the bugs are worked out.

    Which one should I use to connect my monitor to my GPU DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI or VGA? I will also have my HDTV connected to my GPU using the HDMI port, and the GPU only has one of those.

    Is it worth getting a Blu-ray drive for my build, or would it be better to just get a stand alone to hook up to my tv? I don't own any Blu-rays at the moment, but I may in the future.

    I'm curious if I am going to have problems with hardware/software/games if I go with Windows 8 as my OS. I haven't seen anything yet in researching this build that shows Windows 8 as supported.

    Actually, the EVGA's look pretty good stock. The core clock is 1006MHz and the boost clock is 1084MHz. I'm assuming that they're factory OC'd.

    Oh, that would be sweet, so I'll need another 200mm fan for the top. Think I should put a 200mm in the side as well?
