Looking for advice on my custom build list. Basically I am trying to keep it around 1000k, but I want the ability to upgrade it in the future if need be.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

-Tom

Posting a wish list like that doesn't work you need to post a link to each item. I just brings us to newegg login page so we have no idea what your looking at for parts.

Looks like a good build only thing i would recommend is a little bigger PSU for future add on of more video cards in SLI or Crossfire or simply a bigger one that's more demanding on power, maybe up it to like 750W-850w, and for ease of instalation make sure its modular less unused cords in the case.

Oh and if you plan on overclocking better get the i5 2500k, it's unlocked for overclocking.
