Hi so for a while now I've been researching and asking question on pretty much this same topic. I'm trying to build a PC for around $1000 and I want to be able to play SC2/Diablo 3/ Guild Wars 2 and possibly an up to date FPS. I also want to make this pc as long lasting as possible. This is what I put together, but I'd like some opinions.

Case: Antec 300 - $60
Motherboard: MSI P67-GD65 - $170
CPU: Intel i5 Sandy Bridgge 2500k - $220
Cooler: Hyper 212 plus - $30
Memory: G. skill Ripjaw(2x4GB) $55
Video: MSI 560 Ti twin frozr II/OC - $245
PSU: Corsair TX850 - $135
HDD: Samsung spinpoint f3 - $60
Optical: Samsung - $19

Total = $994
after Rebate - $939

Eventually I had planned to add a second twin frozr as well as an SSD, but I'd like it to run fine without for now.

looks good, that psu is overkill, even for gtx 560ti sli so unless your trying to run sli 580s you will be fine with a 650w unit.

XFX's power supplies are new, but the quality is still great.
