Hello, this should be the last time I ask for help with making sure all the parts work together and theres no serious bottlenecks. I will be needing to save up for my first car soon. I would not like to spend a penny more unless it would be a great performance increase, and another thing is there any parts that offer more bang for buck. I would like to have corsair memory but it is not that important, and same with the gpu it sould be an nvidia or some vendors version. I think this build will work fine for playing crysis 2 every once in a while and I might get metro 2033 and battlefield 3. I also do some video editing and lightwave. But mostly i play eve online and a few other online games. Down the road I would like to add another card in sli/crossfire. But im still not quite sure what vendor I should get the 560ti from. And I may overclock the cpu a bit. Do you guys know of any 22 or 23 inch sized screens with hdmi.

Heres the build
Intel Core i5-2500k

psu+case combo:

cpu+ram combo (low profile ram heatsinks):

the z68x-ud3 is no longer made, the z68xp-ud3 is the newer version that supports quick sync (dont forget the promo code):

agreed on the monitor suggestion. there are several good Asus models, but that one is the best deal at the moment.

alternatively:

but you may have issues fitting ram with tall heatsinks in the first memory slot when using the hyper 212+, or many cpu coolers.
