Alright guys,

These are the components I am intending to get but can ye help me out if i can get better parts?

Case : NZXT Phantom 410
CPU : Intel i5 3570k
CPU Cooler : Cool Master Hyper 212 Evo
GPU : EVGA GTX 760 4GB
RAM : Corsair Vengence 8GB
Motherboard : Gigabyte Intel Z77 Dual Thunderbolt ATX
SSD : Samsung 120GB
Hard Drive : Seagate 2TB
PSU : Corsair CX750 Builder Series 750W
DVD Drive : Asus DRW
OS : Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Please bear in mind that i want to future proof myself for a good few years.

Thanks,
Levent.

I a bit leery of the CX series and haven't been impressed with the reviews I have seen. I'd consider the TX as the minimum quality level with HX and AX (in most sizes) being the pinnacle. The case in this combo is $70 every other week on newegg, ya just looking in the wrong week :( 

Case - $200 Corsair 500R Black http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...
PSU - included Corsair TX750

The 1155 socket is dead end, current generation is 1150. And while the 3570k overclocks better than the 4670k, since the latter is faster at stock speeds, it works out perty even. If ya lose ya MoBo 18 months from now, even your warranty replacements will ne new generation boards. Just went thru this twice with 1156 board failures (user induced) and had to replace both MoBo and CPU as manufacturer had no 1156 boards. The MSI GD65 has swept the field with this MoBo.

hrough the board, and you have a winning combination at $189.[/quote]

Seagate is a great performer, especially at 3TB....get the WD Black if ya want 5 years
HD - $135 Seagate 7200.14 1TB http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
HD - $90 Caviar Black 1TB http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
SSD - $135 - Samsung 840 Pro 128GB http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Hyper 212 is a great $30 cooler .... Phanteks tops it by 14C if ya have bigger budget

Cooler - $80 - Phanteks PH-TC14 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
TIM - $7 - Shin Etsu http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

As for the GFX, I wouldn't invest in the 4GB unless ya resolution is bigger than 1920 x 1080. Are you thinking of the EVGA SC series..... historically EVGA has used a great cooler but stock / reference PCBs and VRMs on the factory overclocked SC series. The competition from Asus, Gigabayte and MSI OTOH have used nonreference PCB and VRM ever since the 5xx series.

Dont opt for a haswell over ivy
Reasons
1. Only 5-10% marginal increase in haswell from ivy
2.haswell produces more heat than 6 core sandy bridge e processors so ivy cpu would b better overclocker
3.there is no news that the 1150 socket would support further generation processors as broadwell would be bringin ddr4 most probably so it will be a new mobo

Ok thanks guys but i am sorry to say i will have to cut down my budget due to personal reasons to about £850 / $1350. If i can get more money i will change my build to the ones suggested. More than likely the double GTX 760! Thanks alot sn1992 and Sangeet Khatri
