    Arrow From a PC to a Mac to a Linux

    Hello Everyone,

    I am looking to build the following system:

    *Fujitsu MBA3300RC 300GB 15000 RPM Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) Hard Drive - OEM
    *ASUS 20X DVD±R DVD Burner with LightScribe Black
    *ASUS VK266H Black 25.5" 2ms(GTG) HDMI Widescreen
    *ASUS ENGTX295/2DI/1792MD3/A GeForce GTX 295 1792MB 896 (448 x 2)-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail
    *CORSAIR XMS3 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TR3X6G1600C9 - Retail
    *ASUS P6T Deluxe/OC Palm LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail
    *Intel Core i7 940 Nehalem 2.93GHz LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core Processor Model BX80601940 - Retail

    The Hard drive is pending.. Is there a better hard drive out there besides the insanely priced SSD's? for Gaming, I heard the velociraptor is better... is this true?

    What type of cooling should I get?

    Is the Intel core i7 940 as easily overclocked and as powerful as the 920?

    What is a good silent cooling choice I can use?

    According to the setup above? Would you change anything (Not more powerful, if not, a better alternative or perhaps a better choice due to overclocking capabilities or more competitive pricing?

    In regards to heat issues, is a water cooling system recommended?

    Sorry for the excessive questions, but I want to make sure I know what I am buying before I jump on it...

    FWIW, it will be triple booting Mac, Windows, Linux.

    Thank You!
