Hello Ladys and Gents! Well. Seeing as this is a computer site, Gents! :D 

Okay. Now, I've made a build. Well, I asked around here before for advice, but seeing as how I got 1000$ CA now, it's time to buy the computer.

So. Here is what I got so far :p 

Motherboard:
http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=63945&vpn=Z68%20Extre...

What I want in a Motherboard:
-USB 3.0 (One or 2 is fine)
- At Least 2 SATA 6.0 slots. I need to install 2 SATA Harddrives. Both are 360 GB big. Their free, so why not?
- NVidia or AMD or anything, I don't care. As long as I can have two powerful graphics cards installed working simultaneously. For now, just one.
- DVI AND VGB Connections. The DVI is probably with the graphics card, but just incase :3
- 4 slots MINIMUM for RAM.
- i7 Support. Quad Core or better.
- at least 4 slots for usb. I can't stress this enough. (and any extra for the case :D )

Processor:
http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=57960&vpn=BX80623I726...

What I want:
-Quad Core or Higher.
- I don't know what Sandy Bridge is, but if its good, why not.
- I need it to be able to edit videos, and run a Minecraft server, and play games.

CPU FAN:
Since I heart Stock cooling is ***, I thought i'd get a Coolmaster Cooler. Like : http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1683... maybe?

Case:
http://ncix.com/products/?sku=55583

What I want:
-Low price. (Remember, I only have 1k. I want to spend it towards whats on the inside, I can always change outside. I don't care about looks yet.)
-USB slots? :D 
-Good cooling. Duh.
- SILENT. BONUS POINTS IF ITS SILENT!

Graphics:
http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=63985&vpn=HD685XZCFC&...

What I want:
- Can be mother firetruck-ing powerful.
- NO LAG ON GAMES PLOX. Like. Minecraft. PLEASE.
- Im not good with Graphic cards, but please. DVI support please. HDMI is a bonus, but DVI is a MUST. Maybe two ports? :D  Dual screen would be lovely.

RAM:
http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=60640&vpn=996995&manu...

What I want:
- EIGHT. 8! LOTS. RAM HOARNESS. LOLOL
Seriously, I don;t care by who, or where. I just want decent RAM.

Power Supply:
I know what to get. It's 750w Bronze thing? Like. 80+. Idk.

Monitor:
I got dis. :D  It's DVI.

HDD:
Two 360 GB harddrives. SATA. Idk the rest.




SO THERE YOU HAVE IT.

Whats the point of posting this?
I need to know if this build is good.
If it meets my needs.
If its compatible.
If its up to date.
If its good.
If I can save money, but keep the quality.
if if if.



if.

Thank you :D  I answer fast. Goodluck :)

Most of the stuff you've posted so far is pretty good (HAF 912 is the best bang-for-buck case on the market right now) but you don't need a 2600K for your CPU in a gaming system. Drop that to the 2500K and invest the difference in getting a better GPU - the 6970 or the GTX 570. The EVGA 560TI 448 core model is a good choice as well and it performs about a low-level 570 would.

As far as the HD goes don't waste your money on Velociraptor HDs. They're expensive and overpriced vs. what a good, solid SSD and 1TB hard drive combo will get you. Go with a Crucial M4 and a Samsung Spinpoint - it's the same combination I use and it's blazing fast. You can't go wrong with that. But Spinpoints are hard to come by anymore as Samsung sold their HD division to Seagate so pretty much anything will work.

For PSU yes you want one that's certified and rated 80+ bronze or better. Try this: http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=52174&vpn=S12II%20620...

So. Wait. Would I be able to add a second 6970's later on?
What would be the difference between the 6970 and the 570?

The HDD's that I have are free. I rather spend my money on the other components then the harddrives for now. But, would my motherboard be able to support the SSD's?

Also, a little note. I'm buying it off of a store, I just need to know if the numbers and names go good together.

One last question, the 2500k, over-clockable, yes?

Yes the 2500K is an unlocked CPU. Which means that it can be overclocked.

If you can reuse any components like your HDs, definitely do so.

The main difference between the 6970 is that it's a Radeon card and runs AMD Eyefinity which means that you can run up to 3 monitors from one card. The 570 is an NVIDIA card and it has a technology called "CUDA" for faster rendering but I'm not entirely sure how that works.

Awesome. Okay thanks :p 

One last thing.

Right now, I also have the 9600 GT. Worth upgrading?

Yes - the 9600GT is quite a few generations old now. Either you can reuse that and wait for the 6-- GPUs or save some more money and get the Radeon 7950.

560 Ti is the best bang for the bucks right now (IMO) going to 7xxx series might be too much for me.
