This is what I'm certain im buying:
-CoolerMaster WaveMaster
-AMD Athlon 64 FX-55
-PC Power&Cooling Turbo SLI Deluxe PSU
-1 GB DDR OCZ Platinum Rev 2
-300 GB Maxtor DiamondMax
-NEC DVD Burner
-Creative Labs Audigy 2 ZS
-Dell 2001FP Ultrasharp LCD Panel

I'm thinking of waiting to get the ATI R520 and ATI Mobo Chipset. Any suggestions? I want this rig to satisfy me for a longggggggggg time.

If you want a kick-ass gaming rig, why not build a clone of MaxPC's Zero-Point Bench systems? They're listed in each month's review of systems.

The only thing is that maybe the CM WaveMaster won't be able to cool down the FX and SLI enough.

That's no fact.
