Proximon, the CL7 memory is only a few dollars cheaper than the one I've chosen, which I found surprising. As for getting an SSD, I am thinking that I will use this one for the time being and if I find a need for an SSD I can get one later on.
jsc, thanks for those links but the company selling the parts has offered to put them all together for a very low build fee. These guys are pretty reputable so I'm pretty comfortable with letting them build it.
Reaper, thanks for the F3 suggestion, I think I might actually go with that after reading some reviews. As for the 580 getting its butt kicked, I am an NVIDIA person . And I think I am already getting the OEM version on Windows 7
As for my compatibility question, do you think my components are compatible?
yes, they all work together, but I advise an after market cooler, something like the http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Hyper 212 ~ 30$, I don't advise LC if you aren't familiar with building.... If you are having someone else build it... you can consider it... but you still need to check on it about every year... If you want to, I'd get the H70
