Opinions on new build wanted.

Opinions wanted on this build, to be used for a bit of everything but probably no serious gaming. Overbuilding slightly to be good for a long time, although this may be overkill in some respects

i5 2500k $215
asus p8z68v pro $195
corsair vengeance blue (1600) $91
coolermaster gx 650w 80+ p.s. $73
coolermaster storm scout case $68
win 7 home premiun $94
asus drw 24b1st 24x dvd $18
seagate barracuda 1 tb 7200 $54
total $808
I haven't picked a video card yet, maybe letting the z68 do the job for now, even though i don't think it'll do dx11...
Thanx for the input everyone.

More about opinions build wanted
  1. If you have money go with the AMD Radon 6950 graphics card
  2. as a sidenote, I've got 2 WD 1 tb w/esata externals, which was 1 reason i was considering this level of mobo with proper onboard support for these drives.
    Also, since i just got home after canada day fireworks (not bad for a little city of 60k), i have not yet looked at the last 2 responses..(thanks)

    ok i dont think the gigabyte has esata
  4. ok, found the xfx 650w pow supply for $79, and the ripjaws 8gb cl 9-9-9-24 for $66, and the i5 2500k is down to $209.

    What would be a good memory card reader add in?
  5. Drop that memory and save and get this ram, you'll save with the bundle too and get the Z68 MB
