You can't go overkill if you want to play SoW:BoB.

Make shore you're motherboard has sli, you never know.

Nice rig.

consider SLI, and get 2x Raptors and an external 'storage' drive. No reason to spend 300$ on a hard drive that is slow as yesterday.

2x 36.7GB raptors in Raid 0 = better
1x 150GB drive external or internal if you have cooling for it.

dual core is also bad for gaming, but good for architecture stuff. do a lil research

Why not a Core2 Duo?

Much faster and cooler, oh, and cooler http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif.

Raid 0 increases your chances of disk failure - the loss of one of the drives means you lose the whole virtual disk.

I use this setup beacuse it goes like stink but I also keep a good backup regime http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Have you considered water cooling? Your rig sounds like an aquarium not a B-17 taking off.

I wouldn't worry about BoB just yet - that rig will be entry level when it's released http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/touche.gif
