Looking for some review by you the "experts" prior to my purchase.

Lets me preface by all these purchases are going to be made at my local Microcenter. Some prices are better some are worse... some options I would have liked don't exist at Microcenter and thus why I want you all to look it over and suggest changes where need be.

I am not on a set budget, however, I do like that $2000.00 mark for a ball park.

The computer will primarly be used for gaming.

CASE: Cooler Master HAF X Full Tower ATX Gaming Case
CPU: Intel Core i5 2500K LGA 1155 Boxed Processor
MOTHERBOARD: ASRock Z68 Extreme4 Socket 1155 Z68 ATX Intel Moth
HS/F: Xigmatek GAIA SD1283 Universal CPU Cooler
RAM: Corsair Vengeance Series 8GB DDR3-1600 (PC3-12800)
SSD: OCZ Technology Vertex 3 Series VTX3-25SAT3-120G
HD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7,200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5"
GFX: 2x Sapphire Technology 100312-3SR
PSU: Cooler Master RS-800-80GA-D3 Silent Pro Gold 800W

OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit OEM (PC)

Let me know what you think, thanks!

Grand Total: After tax $2,083.25 w/ artic silver

PS: I apologize for the links now working... perhaps someone can shed some light on that as well...

ok here we go

it's pretty awesome build but ...
spend more on cooling your system like Noctua 14 Also I've heard 6950 2Gb heat up alot so look into that as well
SSD go for m4 crucial
otherwise looks pretty neat

Ill look into the HS/F - looks like a great tool for OC.

What are the benefits of a m4 SSD over OCZ? I've heard lots of good things about OCZ.

And I've heard lot's of problems. I think something has to do with cache ... and overall. I'm not really an expert on SSDs they are pretty new to me

Very well, unfortunetly they only offer the 64gb at the local microcenter, may have to pick up two.

SWTOR beta is currently at 73gb!
