Additional Comments: My Build so far. This is going to be my first build, how does everything look? Is the Ram compatible? I couldn't find is on asrocks supported list but i might have missed it, the Ram says it works for z68. I could switch it but I like the black.
Looks pretty decent. I really only recommend SSDs with that capacity on that type of budget. The problem is while SSDs have signifcantly increased read/write times you will fill that thing up pretty quickly and you'll regret not having the extra space. Switch that out with a 1TB Samsung Spinpoint and then get an SSD like that later on as an upgrade. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
This is my suggestion for a ~$1000 build. You can easily knock off the $60 or so bucks if need, but I think the extra 60 would benefit you greatly. At a later date I would add a COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO air cooler for about $35, if you plan to OC much.
