    also i think you should go with another mobo, intel H67?!!! yru finding another combo that suits you. go for a P67 one

    i like the PSU, the GPU is all right for the budget and i5 sandy bridge rocks, i would get the i5 2500k but thats if your going to over clock.

    Nice build :) Also agreed with the changes the above poster suggested... RAM and hard drive. The P67 boark and unlocked cpu is going to put you out of your price range, but what you have now as far as cpu and mobo will do just fine. Just make sure that mobo has two PCI-E slots that will run two cards @ 8x & 8x if you plan on running dual vid cards.
  3. Intel mobos are not really that great, I would look into getting a different one. I'm pretty sure the asrock p67 will do fine. If you want to cf/sli you might wanna bump it up to the exteme4 though.
  4. Thanks for help guys.

    I think I'm gonna change the Mobo with one of these.

    ASRock P67 PRO3 LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
