Hi, I current have a "GTX 480, Core i7 960, Rampage II, Corsair CWCH50-1 Hydro H50, 1000WATT Corsair, Etc. I need a new build because I have numerous problems with the system. Overheating (Faulty VideoCard or Processor), I get about 60*C on 3.2GHz. Video Card, constant crashes. I can't get anything replaced. I want to build a new system under 1200, but if something can be better for less, under 1500 MAX. I wanted to ask teh community to help me pick the right choices. I don't mind overclocking. :)

Errrr, consider upgrading but I understand the GTX 480 is a really hot card which is why. I think you could keep the 1K watt corsair and stick that into the next build to save some money. Take the H50 and bring it over, maybe to save some more cash.

Check out my guide in my siggy. 1200-1500$ :D

Maybe it's the video card thats making hell for my processor, but I don't want to use anything from my old build. Budget increased to $1,800.

Still a 1500$ build could do it all. You could hold off for a month and a half for SB to return in April. My builds entail that, not current state with no SB chips.

So hold off till April is my suggestion.
