Additional Comments: This new build will be my third custom pc. My first try (AMD athlon 64 era) was good but I really had no clue what i was doing. My second build was an Intel core 2 duo. Although I had more experience the problem I think was that all the parts weren't balances and didn't mesh well together. I will be trying a SSD for my OS only this time around.
don't get evga mobo for p55 (too expensive) and the gigabyte GPU is the fastest 560ti available it has a great overclock and is binned from bunches of 560 tis so you get the better ones and they overclock farther with less voltage thus less heat
