New system...comments??

Getting ready to build a new system. Please look at my specs and make any suggestions. The video card is a big question for me so any alternatives will be appreciated. I originally was going with a Matrox Parhelia but there seems to be issues with that card, it there???? Thanks. Chuck

as far as i know the parhelia works fine with the RTX100. I see you're going with the Audigy sound card. I know Matrox has it on their recommended list, but I have run into problems in the past with it. I strongly recommend you use the audio built on the motherboard.

looks good - maybe add a vantive fan and artic silver thermal grease.

TT III cases are a joy to work with! just the best, lots of fans and drive space.
