Thanks to all for the detailed responses

Your comments have been very useful.

I, too, build and upgrade my desktop PC from scratch. I typically replace motherboard and processor every 2 to 3 years. I was thinking 8Gb of RAM would be sufficient, but you all have convinced me to go to 16Gb.

Otherwise, my plans seem pretty much in line with what many of you have:

  • fastest i7 I can afford

  • 16Gb RAM

  • 128Gb SSD for OS and applications

  • 4Tb HD for data

  • fast video card

  • ample power supply

I am planning to wait for Windows 8 before I build this.

Any other thoughts or suggestions?

Steve
