OK i have several builds here atm, getting old tho. I decided to get a new one, yet still i have doubts if i should just wait for Haswell or not

I don't care if stuff is cheaper or not, this will end up on about 2200 USD converted roughly from NoK

Might put in another GPU later for SLI

Anyway, here is what i have cooked up atm :

Corsair AX860i 860W
2xSeagate Barracuda ST3000DM001 64MB 3TB (Raid 1 software considered)
Intel 520 Series 2.5" SSD 240GB
Asus Maximus V Formula
Intel Core i5 3570K 3,4Ghz Socket 1155 Box
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 670 OC HDMI DisplayPort Dual-DVI 2GB
4xCorsair Air Series AF140 Quiet 140mm (Replacing the cabinet fans 2xfront,1x bottom and 1x exhaust back)
Fractal Design Define R4 (No window)
Corsair Hydro H100i (Or Krakenx60, not decided)
Avexir Core Series MPOWER Edt. DDR3 PC19200/2400MHz CL10 4x4GB ( Yes, i know, but this ram has np beeing stable on XMP profile)

do you have any reason picking Asus Maximus V Gene which is micro ATX mobo?
i will recommend ATX size mobo instead :) 

and for PSU, i will recommend corsair AX850 or AX860i

Hmm, well it has what i am looking for and it will uncomplicate putting water cooling in the top. I have considered the Asus Maximus V Formula:)  Indeed the PSU is a scary choice. Probably gonna go for Corsair there i guess
