I have come close to choosing a build and even though Ivy bridge will come Q1 2012, I think I will pull the trigger on a system now.
Here's what I'm thinking of getting, I know it's a little overkill, but I think it will be really fast and fun.
Components to re-use:
Storage: Two 1TB Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 (will do raid 0)
PSU: Corsair VX450
Case: SilverStone GD05 Grandia
Processor: Intel I5 2500K
Cooler: Scythe Shuriken Rev. B (SCSK1100)
Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-Z68MA-D2H-B3
Memory: Kingston ValueRAM 8GB (2x4GB) 1333MHz DDR3 CL9 DIMMs (KVR1333D3N9K2/8G)
OS Drive: Adata S511 120GB 2.5" SATA3 SSD
Optical Drive: Prob some SATA DVD writer, but might not bother with one. With virtual drive mounts and online storage who needs to write to media anymore
Let me know what you think! Do you have any suggestions, improvements? Am I going way too overkill?
