Hello everyone,
I need to buy a new desktop computer, also I want to build (hardware assembly) it by myself to save money. Do you have any advice and any website to show how to do build it?

My intended parts as below:

Intel CPU Core i5-2500
G.SKILL DDR3 12GB (3 X 4GB) PC-12800/1600
Gigabyte GA-Z68A-D3-B3 Intel Mainboard (B3 Stepping) - LGA 1155 4x DDR3, 6x Sata Raid
Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 7200RPM 32MB SATA3/2
OCZ Vertex 2(E Version) 60GB SSD SATA2 2.5"
Asus nVidia GTX560 1GB DDR5
Antec High Current Gamer 750W
CoolerMaster Hyper 212+ EVO CPU Cooler Socket: AM2, AM3, 775, 1155, 1156, 1366
Antec TrueQuiet 120mm Case Fan with 2-Speed Switch (for HDD)
Antec One Hundred (SSD 2.5" + support Motherboards: Mini-ITX, microATX, Standard ATX)

Thank you.

I own the Antec 100 it is a good and low cost little mid tower that can do 3 way CrossfireX or SLI and I also have the Hyper 212+ and it is a great cooler.

I don't know what your budget amount might be , since you didn't post it , but I have two suggestions for you and these suggestions might raise the overall cost of your computer.
1. You have a new motherboard with sata 3 6gb/s ports and to take advantage of this you should look at SSD 3 drives.
OCZ Vertex 3 VTX3-25SAT3-60G 2.5" 60GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) $104.99 and a $20 rebate makes it $84.99

2. The Asus GTX 560 is a good card but a better card is the Ti version;
ASUS ENGTX560 TI DCII/2DI/1GD5 GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
$244.99 and a $20 rebate makes it $224.99

All of your other choices are pretty good and you should have a decent computer once you put it together , and this time of year you can catch some good sales. Of course these are just my suggestions and you can naturaly do what you want to do.

Thank you.
I live in Australia so the prices are a little higher than in USA.
