Assuming you live in the US.


Terrible motherboard choice for a build that isn't going to be overclocked.

Not the right memory, that's triple channel, not dual channel.

That 460 is a rip because it's the price of a GTX 560 or a 6870 for less headroom and less performance.

That power supply is way too much for a non-SLI/CF build. Let alone one that isn't going to be overclocked. That PSU isn't that great anyway.

The HDD is way to overpriced and performs the same as a Samsung F3 for about $20 more.

The 2500K isn't worth it if you're not going to overclock, get the i5 2400 instead and the fan coming with the chips are good enough.

Excellent advice from AznShinobi!!

I'd also like to ad you don't need a P67 if your not going to crossfire/sli or overclock. You can go with a H67.
