I have been reading Charles' discussion about a good home built workstation.  Because I am required to purchase a computer from a company that offers warranties with on site parts and labor, I cannot go the home-built route (unfortunately).  I have a configuration that follows Charles'  specifications as close as the available options would allow:


Intel® Core™ i7 2600K O.C. @ 4.10GHz Silent Air Cooling w/CM 12cm Fan 8MB Shared L3 Cache DMI Quad-Core VT

16384MB DDR3 @1600MHz Dual Rank Interleave

ATI® FirePro™ V7800 2GB DDR5 PCIe 1xDVI Dual Link

240GB Solid State Drive Corsair® Force Series 3 (R2) SATA 6Gb/s 550/520MB/s Seq.R/W SandForce® SF-2200 Ctrl. <.3ms seek Shock Resistant 1500G

1000W Cooler Master™ SilentProM™ Quiet BB 12cm Fan 80%+efficiency 99% APFC UL



Is this overkill, underkill, incompatible, or otherwise FUBAR?  I am looking to replace my box before the end of the year.  Any constructive advice would be much appreciated.
