After many questions and contemplation I have finally finished my build.
I need everything except an OS and Mouse+Mat. Here's What I've got:

--Newegg
Monitor
1. Hanns-G 1080P LED 21.5 Monitor - $120

GFX Card
2. PNY GTX 580 1.5GB - $420

Power Supply
3. Enermax MODU87+ 900w - $140

Keyboard
4. Rosewill Gaming PS/2 Keyboard - $15

RAM
5. Patriot Gamer 2 8GB 1333mhz - $32

HD
6. Seagate Barracuda 1TB - $50<-----------
}
DVD Drive } Combo with HD and DVD Drive
7.Samsung CD/DVD Burner OEM - $17<----

Processor
8. Intel i5 2500k - $200<---------
}
Motherboard } Combo with Mobo and CPU
9. MSI P67A-G43 (B3) - $110<---


--Amazon

CPU Cooler
10. Antec Kuhler 620 - $60

Speakers
11. Logitech 2.1 s220 w/ Sub - $20

All prices are after mail-in-rebate. Comes out to ~$1200.

Might be SLIing 580's in the future. So what do you guys think? Would it be worth it to get a nonreference 570 with good cooling and overclock it so I can save ~$120 to upgrade the rest of my components? Any and all comments welcome.

GTX570 would be plenty at 1080P resolution. A cheaper air cooler like the CM hyper 212+ would be enough for your CPU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


Thanks. Looking for this build to last 2-3 years. Think the 570 would be maxing/close to maxing games(at least med settings) at 1080p for that long?

Certainly if you SLI in the future. If we look at the great cards of the past GTX260 and HD4870 they are equal in performance to the lower midrange HD5770 and still hold their own today.

So would you recommend a 580 since I plan to keep it so long or it won't make much of a difference?

I do not think it makes much of a difference.
