Hello,
What Im looking for is a ****** gaming great computer for 1200 (and maybe $50 over). It needs to be able to run Crysis 2 and Eve Online. I want the CPU to be The intel I5-2500K with an EVGA Gpu. The rest is up to you. Below is an idea i have for a setup what Im wondering if the psu is sufficient or if it is bottlenecking anywhere.

Corsair Veangeace 4GB (2X2GB)
EVGA GeForce GTX 580

Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB
ASUS P8P67 (REV 3)
Cooler Master Hyper+

Good build, are you planning on SLI later? And Thumbs up on the RAM Vengeance is my favorite!

So I just bought the ASUS P8P67 (REV 3) motherboard and I seem to be having a problem with RAM compatibility. I have tried two different RAMs both I get a blue screen. After the first RAM I looked through the manual and noticed there is a list of compatible RAM of which both RAMs were not on the list. My question is the RAM MercRuzyho had picked out also does not appear to be on the list of RAMs, so it would not work correct? I don't recall ever seeing a list of compatible ram for motherboards. Just speed and type of RAM, if those match I thought it should work.

You might wanna check what speed of RAM the MOBO supports.

I did. There is a list. A small and specific list. I was noticing that the Corsair Vengance RAM is NOT on the list. Anyways I will try a RAM on the list and see what result I get.

The P8P67 doesn't support SLI. At least I really thought that. Hmmm.... Are you SLI'ing?
I find the heatsinks on the RAM annoying, as they don't really serve a purpose anymore.
