I heard somewhere that the prices on the i7 2600k were going to be very cheap at micro center. Might want to check that out. Are you going to get two 570s? Or one 580 and upgrade to another later? Just an idea. You're the pro here.
And for RAM. Are you looking for 4 or 8 gb? The g.skill ripjaw X has 8gb for $90 on newegg which sounds pretty cheap to me.
hey joel, i am hoping to get up to around 4.6-4.7 GHz and i personally don't like the hyper 212+ and for this overclock, i am only going for the best. I have a friend who has a hyper 212+ so i made my own judgements.
Corsair has an 8 year warranty, and i want my PSU to last atleast 2 builds (or 3.. prolly not though)
I'm guessing you'll want 8 GB's, and 2x4 seems to be just as cheap as 4x2 nowadays. The 7-8-7-24 seems as low of timings as most are offering,
You can drop down to 8-8-8-24 to save $20 or you can spend and extra $40 to get the RAM fan. Seeing what your other preferences have been, I doubt you'd jump for either of these. This is probably the RAM I'm going to go with for my own 2500K build.
