get this RAM, designed for sandy bridge.

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-4GBXL

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682...

$43


this HDD is cheaper and less shipping cost

SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB $65

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.

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.
