Default New Build --- Suggestions?

Just rebuilt my studio computer... I was wondering on any suggestions that would help make it more rock solid...

I have a PT FW approved interface card but I haven't put it in the computer yet. I didn't expect the Mobo to only have one standard PCI slot (plenty of PCI-express) and I kindof need that for my wireless card (which I can abandon if I get a long enough ethernet cable).

I would use a USB wifi adapter as you want it disabled whenever you run Pro Tools. Also, the onboard firewire works just fine so you may not even need the extra card. I would have looked for faster RAM. The RAM in my machine runs at 7-7-7-20 settings(or am I wrong that smaller numbers mean faster RAM?).

Might've cheaped a bit on the memory but I'm not going ot sweat it for now... Maybe I can tweak it a bit down the road. I think you are right about you want smaller numbers on the ram.

You know I have a USB wireless laying around here somewhere...

Plus it's a new system so maybe a BIOS update is in order too...
