So I'm looking at putting this together:

2500K +Z68 $320
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...

6GB RAM
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

GTX 560 Ti $230
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Samsung F3 1TB $60
http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Spinpoint-3-5-Inch-Intern...

Antec 620W $60
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

V3 case $39.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Do I need anything else? Any major issues you guys see? Do I need additional cooling (if so what?)

I already have a DVD drive. Any compatibility issues you see?

I'm looking to do some gaming (nothing like Crysis), but I do want it at 1920x1080. No editing, but other semi-graphically intensive.

Would like to keep it around 700-900.

I'm not set on this build by any means, so if you have a better one, feel free to throw it out there!

Thanks!

Looks good! Although if you are going to OC, you might want to get a retail Heatsink and Fan.

Get 4 or 8GB for RAM, 6GB isn't "dual-channel friendly".

Timop is right, I recommend 4GB because most programs won't use more than that, and in the future you can upgrade to more

OC is overclock right?

I don't really know how to do that, so I probably wouldn't have to worry about that...

Any suggestions on the 4gb set?

And if I do go with the heatsink and fan, which should I?
