  1. You have a monster size full tower case and are sticking a Micro-ATX MoBo in it. I'd suggest:
    ASUS P8Z68-V PRO
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131730

    RAM - Make sure low profile version

    GFX - The 850 MHz version you selected is $230. This one is 50Mhz faster for same price
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130610

    However, with the hybrid 560/570 (560-448) coming out Tuesday, reportedly for the same price, I'd be waiting on that.

    PSU - I'd move up to the 850 watter for twin overclocked 560's or 560-448's .... only $20 more
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139011&Tpk=HX850

    Or get the XFX Core Edition .... $90
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817207011

    I'd move up to a 128 GB SSD

    Consider a fan controller / card reader combo

    I agree - that doesn't make a whole lot of sense. :lol:

    I'd actually suggest this - one of the best price / performance PSUs on the market, and you'll be able to achieve at least 4.5 - 5.0GHz without breaking a sweat:

    In my experience those can be kind of useless... the one built into my Graphite 600T doesn't really do a whole lot.
