Now when we have a possible release date for Oleg's magnum opus, whatever it's going to be called, I really feel the urge to spend some serious cash on a new computer. Intel's release of Sandy Bridge was perfect in timing, too bad we don't have anything new from AMD to compare with at this moment though.
I'm having some difficulties to pick out a suitable motherboard and amount and quality of RAM though. Also, do we know if Cliffs of Dover will support hyperthreading? Anyway, this is the system I'm leaning towards:
    Case:
Fractal Design R3 Arctic White www.komplett.se/k/ki.aspx?sku=605524
    Sound card:
Asus Xonar Essence STX www.komplett.se/k/ki.aspx?sku=420234
Update: The Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium HD seems like a worthy contender, I've read a few reviews and it's certainly more gamer friendly than the ASUS card.
Update 2: Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium HD just ordered!

    CPU cooler:
Corsair H70 Hydro series www.komplett.se/k/ki.aspx?sku=604778
    CPU:
Intel Coreâ„¢ i5 Quad Processor i5-2500K. If hyperthreading is supported I'll go for i7-2600K www.komplett.se/k/ki.aspx?sku=619274
    Motherboard:
ASUS P8P67 EVO, Socket-1155 www.komplett.se/k/ki.aspx?sku=617976
    RAM:
Corsair XMS3 DDR3 2000MHz 8GB CL9 www.komplett.se/k/ki.aspx?sku=617274
Or should I go for the Dominators? www.komplett.se/k/ki.aspx?sku=614162

I plan on keeping my harddrives, Corsair 650W PSU and MSI GF460GTX from my current system. OS will be Windows 7 64 bit.
Any thoughts?

Check out tomshardware's sandy bridge review from last week. There's some pointers.

Wow Rider, that's one serious sound card you looking at.. You really need such a high end piece? Myself, I'm concidering a Xonar DX..

Maybe take a look at the NZXT Hale90 650W modular power suply, it would match the Fractal Design R3 case ;)
It's a high quality PSU and 80plus Gold + it should be pretty quiet as well
