here is what i have so far for this build. I really need help picking the best mobo,psu and ram to make sure i have a completely compatible system. Not sure whether to get a Z68 or P67 mobo, i know the P67 is better for overclocking and such.
Any 850 would work from corsair, you dont have to use his suggestion. Z68 is supposed to be a drop in for the new ivy bridge cpu's, and has smart hdd tech- its a proggy that watches often used files and migrates them to a 20-60 gig partition on a ssd for you so that it doesnt load it off the mechanical drive.
