Hey, posted a thread about a month ago saying I was going to build for the first time. Finally ordered parts and some things changed.

Please give me your opinions on this build. I need some peace of mind that I didn't mess anything up and, if a good enough point is made, maybe I'll send something back and in exchange for a better component. I appreciate everyone's time. THANKS!

It should be fine.

It would be nice next time if we didn't have to click all these links, though.

what games are you planning to play with this new build? I think there are better options for you than the 580 for $509. Also with the 2600 vs the 2500k processor, easy way to save money there as well if you dont need the hyper threading.

Went with the 580 because I want it to last and be able to play my games on high settings for a long time. When it can't hack it anymore, I'll SLI. But, to answer your question, Diablo III (if it ever comes out) Metro 2033, COD MWFIII ... random stuff.

I'm a video editor and photographer, I think I good get some real use out of the hyperthreading.
