Ive come to the conclusion after 2 weeks of research about what I want in my build. Im ready to hit the buy buton and I just wanted some input before I do so. My original build was supposed to be a budget of 1700 USD but lets just say IM GOING TO DISNEY WORLD!!! :p 

Here it is.

Case- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

GPU- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Ram- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Mobo- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

CPU- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Heatsink- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Optical drive- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

= 666.93 Dollars.

+394.98 at best buy for HD, Monitor, Power supply.
+235.67 for Keyboard, Mouse, Speakers, Case fans, ect.

Total= 1297.58

So hows it look? Im gona be using it for gaming really. I do alittle photoshop for school but nothing spectacular.

Just a quick thing about the ram, even though it will work with what you have, the SB processors are designed to run with 1.5v ram, and using higher voltage could void your CPU warranty. Might try something like http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... instead.

I would also try to find a case that comes with 2-3 fans, or buy a couple to put in the one you've selected.

The build looks very solid aside from those 2 small things.

I know not the best but I dont plan on doing xfire or SLI yet. Maybe on my next upgrade but not right now.

Jeremy- Ive been trying to go by the list of ram that ASROCK's website says to get. Will this ram that you suggested work on the mobo for sure?

The system looks decent aside from what the gents above said; but check this build out:

I got you a bit better of a video card (at least from the Benchmarks) and I included a monitor and decent HDD

The ram that Jeremy suggested is the same that I would have and he is right about the 1.5v you don't want to go above 1.5v with the Sandy Bridge cpu. You will be ok with that psu.
