I hope you get a satisfactory answer. You are pressing the limits of DIY. How much money will you have invested in all this as opposed to buying a big bad computer?

I found your motherboard on the manufacturers website. When I put in my MSI 785GTM-E45 into my new computer case a few months back I looked at their website to see about compatibility issues and ASUS will have the same kind of information. One tip I will give you when connecting the on/off switch and other things be sure to make sure what is on the motherboard lines up with what is in the instruction booklet. In my booklet it was upside down to what was on the board. Here is the link you need ASUSTeK Computer Inc. - Motherboards- ASUS P8Z68-V PRO Good luck to you!

Did you happen to see your other post here: http://www.doityourself.com/forum/co...ml#post1887768

Biggest compatibly issues will come from MoBo and RAM. Check them out and you should be fine.

A 320 GB HD?? I would go a 500 GB minimum. 1TB would be better.

Also I was wondering about the 320GB HDD. Might be a little skimpy for a high powered system like that. Looks like the 500 GB is only 10 bucks more.

What do you people do to use so much hard drive space? I have a 68 G drive with 58.9G free.

All depends on the usage Furd. My garage PC is pretty much like yours....80G with something like 64 free...and thats probably cause theres a lot of junk still on it. Wifes PC (before the melt down) had a 250g with only about 30 free....she has a lot of music and thousands of pics on it. If someone had pics, movies, games, music, plus all the programs....I can see how it could start filling up. Her new one has 1T on it....

Games. A system like the one posted is even newer, better, faster then mine. I have a 120GB SSD for the OS and other operating things (of which 53GB is free) and then I have 2 - 1TB drives. One for storage of games, pictures and everything else and the other is my backup drive in case the first one fails. My storage drive has 214 GB used up. Its all what you use it for.

Also depends on what all you actually use the system for. My desktop runs virtual box with a lot of virtual machines. My data usage between all drives is probably around 2 TB out of around 3 TB of actual storage space between both systems and external drives. That also includes backup ISOs of all of my discs, system images, pictures, music, Linux ISOs, as well a couple hundred GBs of Open Source Software. Given some of the stuff is duplicates due to backups though. I also system image some of my clients' PCs as well. This can easily fill a 1TB drive in a few days. Also on both desktop and laptop I triple boot operating systems.
