    aznshinobi's guide should help get you started. the only thing i would change is the 32gb ssd. you could put the $75 somewhere else or save it until you can get at least 64gb model. the ssd will make the os installation faster though. like everyone here, any build ~$1000 should be using the i5 2500 or 2500k (for oc'ing).
  5. you could get the XFX HD 6950 2gb (w/ double lifetime warranty) for $80 less and flash the bios to obtain a hd6970.

    the CM 212 (cpu fan) is quiet and powerful and only $35. You could up the antec earthwatt to 750W for $15. soudi, you missed the OD and HD, but you shouldn't spent more than a $100 total for the both of those. other than that its good.
  6. soudi nice cpu but the ram isnt fast enough and the case has only 1 fan and the gpu is close to $400 and i rather get a cm hyper 212+
