  1. Everything else is compatible except the motherboard.

    I would recommend Asrock Z68 Extreme 3 Gen3 or Asrock Z68 Extreme 4 Gen3.

    And for PSU you might want to consider 750W choices from Corsair, PC power & cooling and XFX as well.

  3. Other than possibly getting a Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB for the HDD, I think that is pretty much the bang for buck build atm.

    And it allows for 560Ti SLI by símply tossing in another 560Ti.
  4. ^yep, Spinpoint.
