Looks alright, but I would do some things different. Do you really need Blu-Ray? Or would a regular DVD player work? Oh and btw intel said Ivy Bridge will run on 1155, and if i'm not mistaking most likely on the Z68 chipset. Now back on task. Do you have an old desktop you could strip a HDD from? That would save you some nice bones. Here is what I would recommend if you can't strip anything from an old desktop.




Great system. I downgraded your case, because unless you are watercooling you don't want to pay for an 800d. I changed your motherboard to one that supports PCIE 3.0 if you get IVY Bridge. I also upgraded your GPU. I did downgrade to a dvd player though.
Possible upgrades.
Blu-Ray Burner if needed.
Nicer SSD. (bigger)
i7

I don't think you'll need an i7. Most people don't unless they do tons and tons of video editing. The only advantage really over the i5 is Hyper threading. It has a little more l3 cache too, but that's about it.

Good Luck!

Thank you for you support i will be upgrading to get another 560 PS that 560 has a lifetime warenty and the 800d has great cable management, looks sexy, will last awhile, did i say you can put so much water cooling in that thing and i picked the sabertooth because it is a great mobo and ii will be doing video editing , GOTTA get my Agony on xD all also said i will be buying another ssd that one is for bootup, i have a crappy dell laptop that is lk 4yrs old and blue ray is a must because then i can backup my ps3 games without needing to jailbreak a ps3 and i will choose a mobo that does pci 3.0 and my friends gtx 460 handles 1080p video editing so i 560 will do fine and i hate cooler master cases they have small cutouts cpu coolers if am not mistaken the 800d is a full tower while the one you choose is a mid thanks for the opinion tho Baii :D

The next generation GTX 560 Ti's are coming out in a few days, so wait for that.

I cannot see how you can justify an 800D without jumping straight into watercooling. "Mid" and "Full" is a blurry line. The HAF 922 is bigger than many so-called "Full" tower cases.

For the sake of future-proof, the ASUS Sabertooth P67 mobo falls behind Gen3 mobos from ASRock, ASUS, and MSI.

As in you are immediately SLI'ing? or in the future? Here is a much more powerful card with the exact same warranty.

The 800d is not for this build. Get it if you really feel like you need it, but that is silly. That is fine with blu-ray just making sure you needed it. The one you choose isnt pcie compatible. The one I posted is.

Oh and didn't you have a thread for choosing a pc case. And they mentioned the HAF series. Those are great cases at a more acceptable price.
