Pretty sure I'm squeezing the best bang for the buck here, but I seek the infalable wisdom of the board here. I'll be buying this near the end of the week.

-------

Core i5-2500K 3.3GHz CPU x 1
Overclocked to: 4.4GHz* x1
CoolerMaster Hyper 212+ CPU Cooler x 1
ASUS SABERTOOTH P67 Motherboard (SABERTOOTH P67 R3) x 1
Crucial M4 64GB SATAIII 2.5" SSD (CT064M4SSD2) x 1
Seagate Barracuda Green 2TB 3.5" SATA III 6GB/S 64MB Cache 5900RPM (ST2000DL003) (ST2000DL003) x 1
GIGABYTE GEFORCE GTX 560 PCI-E DDR5-1GB, 256BIT, 2X DUAL-LINK DVI-I, 1X MINI HDMI (GV-N560OC-1GI) x 1
LITEON 24X24 DVDRW SATA BLACK Retail, Dual x 1
Kingston HyperX 16GB DDR3 1600MHz CL9 (4x4GB) (LUComputer-memory-16g-ddr3-1600) x 1
Cooler Master GX 650W Power Supply (RS-650-ACAA) x 1
Cooler Master 690II Advanced Mid Tower Case (Black) (RC-692-KKN2) x 1
Warranty One year parts and three years labor warranty, lifetime toll free telephone support. Hardware only. x 1
Operating System Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit (Installation if buy with PC/Disc/License)

-----------

This is a quote from LU Computers in Toronto, Total price is $1361. As you can see they are gonna overclock it a bit... I'd prefer to buy local so I can pay cash (hides the price from the wife :ange:  )

I did my best to research parts, but this is my first build in probably 4 years.

Thanks for the help, will check back later today!

Compare your prices to PC Canada - I've shopped from them for years and they are always the cheaper price per component. Right down on Lakeshore near Brown's line.

Get a Z68 motherboard like ASUS P8Z68-V LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s.
Or ASRock Z68 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s

I would suggest not getting a 2Tb as the prices are really high and Cavier Green is pretty slow. Also, GTX 560 is not good for the price you are paying. 16gb of ram is not needed. Antec,Corsair, Silverstone is a better PSU brand
