What about this?
INTEL PENTIUM CORE 2 QUAD Q9550 - 12MB cache - 2.83GHz

Power supply? HDD? Monitor? Case?

Great MB, I have one of these in one of my systems, just set it up correct with ram timings, and your FSB. Try looking at a GTX260 or GTX280 for card, I would also say with ram do yourself a favour and grab Corsair Twin2X4096-8500C5DF 8gig, If you plan to run Vista 64bit later, I know the drivers are not out yet for the HD Storm but might be worth the wait. The ram comes in 2gig sticks, you will be able to run it at the following settings 5-5-5-15 2T @ 1066mhz................. I think you can now buy this ram in 8gig packs. Anyway these are a great board and rock solid stable, as I said just need to read the manual and set up the BIOS correctly..

Sorry with power supply go for a 850watt or even a 1kw one, and if money is no problem look a Raptor drives, 10,000rpm in raid, 2 raided together for system and 2 to work of. Case I would look at a Lian & Li great cases a bit dear though,

I agree, this is a great motherboard...
however I suggest that you choose 4 Western Digital RAID Edition (RE3) drives for your video projects. Use the onboard RAID controler to create a stripe or a RAID 5... you will end up with 400/350MBps Read/Write

If money permits go with Western Digital Raptors, they have a full 5yr warranty on them and if you want speed from the system this is the only way to go.

Hi Steve,

You got me thinking. I've always liked the raptor drives but which raid config are you suggesting? Raid 1 for OS and Raid 0 for scratch disc or both Raid 0? I guess it depends on individual requirments.

Cheers,
Marcus Seeger

Hi,
I just run mine in Raid 0 for maxium speed, I know that you don't have data security with this but most of my stuff is backed up on an external drives anyway, plus I do a system reinstall every few months so I am not to concerned, These are great drives though and I would highly recommend them, good warranty 5yrs ect.

Personal preference I know, but I would never run the OS on a RAID
