Hey guys, first time caller long time listener, (sorry had to say it).
about to build a mid range rig.....wanting your thoughts and advice on, if any, compatability issues.

So I have a budget of around $2000....(self employed, just don't want to spend useless money)

Antec Nine Hundred Two V3 Case
ASUS P8Z68-V Pro Motherboard B3
Intel Core i7 2600K
MSI GeForce GTX 560 Ti Hawk 1GB
Corsair Vengeance CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3
Corsair HX-850 Power Supply
Corsair Hydro Series H60 CPU Cooler
Samsung SpinPoint F3 500GB HD502HJ
Samsung SH-222AB SATA DVDRW Drive
CoolerMaster 120mm Silent Blue LED Fan x3
BitFenix Internal USB3.0 Adapter
Lamptron FC5 V2 Fan Controller
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit with SP1 OEM

If anyone knows of any combatability issues or recommendations for upgrades with VALID reasons, please let me know.

if you want load faster, use SSD.

+70Amp on 12V, lots of powers, thats fine.

very good setup.
Your setup is about mid-high range

Well thought out build. Looks good. Make sure the ram is 1.5v or less.

if you consider that mid rage i'd love to see a high end build
the only thing i don't love are the coolermaster fans, everyone i've used in a 24/7 build starts to fail after a year.
I'd go with the trusty antec tri-cools any day, cheap and rather bulletproof.


edit for your question: i'd say that the sweet spot on ssd's right now for price is the 120gb range (or two 60gb in raid 0 if you are feeling really adventurous) , so that should hold your os and your most used programs with little problems, and they really do make a big difference with how fast your computer feels.

Ok, so a friend of mine is about to undertake a high end build at the same time I am doing mine.......makes mine look pretty cheap in comparison. Hence the mid range title I have given mine.
I will talk with him and ask him to post his build in this thread so you can see what I mean
