More about will build work
  1. CPU: the performance choice these days
    Mobo: also consider Asrock Z68 Extreme 4 Gen 3
    Ram: get either 2x4GB 1.5V CAS9 1600Mhz or two of the sets.
    Case: Good solid case with great airflow, will fit the components listed
    PSU: 750W PSU will be sufficient. Corsair/XFX/Seasonic/Antec

    GPU: Whichever seems better for you. Performance is roughly the same when you OC the GTX560ti's.
  2. I seem to remember lots of problems with the GTX 560Ti SOC Edition - you might want to look more into this.

    The standard OC edition is fine, but I remember lots of RMA's on the SOC cards even after it was down-clocked from the factory 1GHz to 950MHz.

    RAM - Make sure your looking at DUAL CHANNEL RAM. As rvilkman said, 2x4GB sticks 1600MHz, 1.v5, CL9 - G.Skill and Corsair Vengeance are popular and well recommended choices.
  3. I would get a high quality 750-850w psu and I would get gtx560 ti sli as they are shorter and have less microstuttering in SLI.
