    -Is there any major difference between the Corsair and Vengeance?

    -The ASRock Fata1ity Professional Gen3 comes with a 3 year warranty.

    -The Antec Illusion is appealing, but I like the CM Storm Scout's red/black theme, as it goes with most of my gear (even though thats not really important).

    -As far as I can see, there is no real difference between the GTX 570 and GTX 560 Ti 448.

    Thanks for your help though.

    Yeah, the HAF does look sick. An SSD is probably a good idea, although it means I'll need more money. Any recommendations for good SSDs?

    The GTX 570 still seems like a better choice for me at the moment, especially as it will be a while before I consider SLI. I guess it all depends on the price range of the new card. I'll have to wait and see before I make a decision.

    No but the G skills has a lower profile than the Corsair so it will fit under more CPU coolers.

    IMOH I would get the 570. The re branded 560 AFAIK is just to get rid of excess stock that Nvidia have.
