Additional Comments: I have been reading all the posts here from past few months, since i was planning to buy system.

My budget of $1200 USD is for only case and things inside it(CPU), mouse and keyboard. I shall buy 2 monitors later.

Here is my setup, please help me out:

RAM:
Corsair DDR3 1600 2 X 4gb

Case:
Coolmaster HAF 932

Processor:
intel i7 2600k

Mother Broad:
Asus P8Z68-V Pro(hope this will support ivy bridge)

PSU(SMPS):
Corsair HX650(hope this is enough)

Hard drive:
Seagate 1TB(since its cheap)

GPU:
Mostly i won`t buy video card, i think onboard GPU on SB should be enough for me.

Mouse and keyboard: Still thinking, since i will be coding allot.


Monitor: DELL u2311 or DELL u2312
I have separate budget for monitor.

I would like to upgrade this system later with may be GPU and ivy bridge. Basically want future proof computer.

Please advice..

Warm Regards,

But i wish to keep adding new things, i might add GPU and ram and may be new proc when it comes. Shouldn`t i keep it safe and have more Watts now itself?

The biggest power consumption increase would be by adding a new GPU, the other items will not add noticeably to the consumption. 650 watts is enough for a single GTX580 and as well enough for a 2 x HD6850.
