Please grade my build!

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!

  3. 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.
  4. 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.
