Hi guys. This is my first post.
I will be building my first Hack as follows (probably in Jan 2013 once I have gathered all the components together)
I would really appreciate it if you awesomly experienced peeps could take a look to see if all of the ducks are lined up in a tight little row?
I have researched and cross researched all of the compatibilities and think I'm okay but...
the rig:

MOBO: Gigabyte GA-Z68MA-D2H-B3
CPU: Intel Core i7-2600K Quad-Core Socket LGA1155, 3.40Ghz, 8MB L3 Cache
GPU: EVGA GeForce GT 520 1GB GDDR3 (single slot to not block up PCIe x1 on MOBO)
SSD (Boot Drive): Crucial 128GB SSD
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LP, 16GB (4x4GB)
Optical Drive: LG Black SATA DVD-Writer SONY AD-7280S-0B Black SATA DVD Writer (thanks Mate94, for the heads up)
Wireless Card: as per this link http://x86wifi.blogspot.ca/2010/04/how- ... -card.html
Bluetooth: ASUS USB-BT211/B, Mini Bluetooth Dongle - v2.1
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
Case: probably the Silverstone Temjin TJ08B
Power: OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W

I really appreciate it guys, thank you.

Change the optical drive to a Sony Optiarc. The rest is fine. :thumbup:

Just took a look on the Canadian Apple Store at the Mac Pro and the following rig is almost $4000

One 3.2GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor
16GB (4x4GB)
1TB 7200-rpm Serial ATA 3Gb/s hard drive
512GB solid-state drive
ATI Radeon HD 5770 1GB
One 18x SuperDrive
Apple Mouse
Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad (English) & User's Guide

My future rig? = $1000 (maybe less if the price on some elements drop over the next few months)

AWESOME!

:headbang:
