I built my current PC three and a half years ago. It's served me faithfully over the years but I think it might be time to upgrade. With the sales this holiday season and a recent promotion at work, I figure I might as well go overboard and rebuild one from the ground up, reusing only some peripherals. Back when I built my current rig, it was my first build and I didn't put too much thought into it. This time around I've done some thorough research, and have come up with a preliminary build.
So I'm wondering if this is a good build. I'm aiming for a solid, balanced gaming rig that will last me another 3-4 years. I'd also like recommendations on a good case and power supply, that provide enough cooling and power to support a moderate OC as well as leave some room for future upgrades (at the very least a second GTX 560 Ti).
If anyone has any comments, advice, or wants to point out flaws in my build, I would be most grateful.
PS: The total so far come out to be around $930, after shipping and rebates. I'd like to have this rig built by the end of the year, spending no more than $1000. I'd actually like to get it down to $800-850 if possible. Maybe going with a smaller SSD, cheaper mobo, and/or reusing my current case? Is PCIe 3.0 compatibility something to worry about if I'm not planning on jumping on the Ivy Bridge bandwagon for a few years?
