As you can see, ive already edging towards my spending limit so can you guys try to make some cheaper yet good alternatives
I would consider a different board, the reviews on Newegg are well below the average.
GTX460? Why not something in the GTX5xx series that's around the same price? I suggest GTX560 or 560ti.
The ram you chose is 1.65v, no good for 2500K. You need 1.5v or less memory.
I'd recommend a 700w psu with the GTX560's in SLI. 750w with the GTX560ti's in SLI. I'm talking about quality psu's, not overated junk. Antec, Corsair, XFX are some of the most reliable and most available. Of course I've taken overclocking into consideration already.
You really should come back when your ready to buy. Most of us know what the current deals are any listing any of the best deals right now would just be a waste of time.
