  1. /sigh

    Ctrl + V

    Wait for AMD's new Bulldozer / Zambezi processors to be released (2-3 weeks)
    This will drop not only amd's CPU Pricing but intel will follow suit.

    You could save a heap of money or get something alot better for ur buck.
  2. i3-2100 $125 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115078
    ASRock Extreme3 Gen3 $125 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157271
    8GB G.Skill Sniper 1600MHz $50 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231416

    As I see it, these are probably your best 3 options. The processor will perform nicely in gaming and wont limit your 560Ti in any way. The motherboard is GEN3/PCI3.0 ready, and it will take a second card in SLI should you ever want to. It will also enable you to upgrade your processor to an i5/i7 or IVYBRIDGE in the future. 8GB 1600MHz RAM is the best bang-for-buck RAM currently and will go really nicely with i3-2100 and z68 motherboard.


    Giving you a final build of:
    ASRock Ex3 GEN3
    GTX 560Ti
    650w Corsair PSU
    8GB 1600MHz RAM
    500GB HDD
    HAF 922
    212+ Cooler

    ^^ Looks a pretty damn good build to me with lots of future potential should you ever want to upgrade again.
