Hey all,

Just wanted to say thanks for all the help over the last few weeks with suggestions and some really solid advice. Below is the list i have compiled ( with a lot of help from you guys ) of my final build.I would appreciate it if you could give it one last look over mainly for compatibility issues.

Thank you for your time.

Very Nice Build ! With your budget I'd go with an i7 even though if you only plan on gaming, you won't see a real difference. I just have a hard time building an i5 with the other top of the line components you have !
Besides that, you're going to enjoy this !
Post pictures asap !

Yeah for what i am doing i7 is just not needed.It was tempting to go that route and snag 12 gig of ram or even a higher end MOBO and stick 24 gigs lol just save up for another 2 months but then the system would never get ordered lol

Great selection indeed, I really dig the case. Even though I am not a fan of Radeon graphics, there isn't a viable alternative from nVidia to recommend at this point.

8 GB is more than enough. You can run 2 high end games simultaneously with that amount of memory.

Enjoy your system!

Nice build but the i5 2500k and z68 will be replace in April. The new 22nm 3570K and z77 would be a better choice. The new 3570K will perform about 15% better clock for clock and being 22nm should OC a bit higher. Tomshardware has the ivy bridge CPU's around 17%. The motherboard as an add in usb 3.0 ASMedia ASM1042 which are problematic. The new z77 chipset has usb 3.0 built in and may come out soon.

Lastly by April that ripoff price on the HD may come down a good deal.

That mobo is not compatible with the GPU he selected.

Yes it is. PCI Express 3.0 is backwards compatible with PCI Express 2.0.

Excellent choices, though the i5 just doesnt feel right for this build! Enjoy

The i5 is the only CPU should always be used on a gaming computer that isn't very low budget. Amazing choice on the graphics card, give us an update when you get it working, I want to know how awesome those cards are.
