Get a Z68 Motherboard better to use with an SSD

PUS go with Antec, Crosair, OCZ, Seasonic

SSD go with the Crucial M4 one of the most reliable SSDs out

For HDD I would go with either 1TB or 2TB (forget the 1.5 cause you are always gonna want more space so get the 2TB) Seagate Barracuda, Samsung Spinpoint F3 are good HDD companies

Also if your not using Hyper Threading apps switch to the i5 2500k to save a $100 to put towards something else

We could show you a couple of examples if you would tell us your budget
