Hey guys,

I'm pretty sure that I will buy this afternoon what i'm about to show you but i'd like to know your opinions and/or advices before I buy this:

ASUS P8Z68-V/GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

OCZ ModXStream Pro 700W Modular High Performance Power Supply compatible with Intel Sandybridge Core i3 i5 i7 and AMD Phenom

Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 3000 BX80623I52500K

Crucial m4 CT128M4SSD2BAA 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL

LITE-ON DVD Burner - Bulk 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black SATA Model iHAS124-04 - OEM

That is a total of 846.32$ shipping included

I already own this case: Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

I already own a GTX 560 (will upgrade for GTX 580 or 590 when they get cheaper)

I plan on buying a 50$ Case just to replace the other one so I am able to sell my old computer.

so 846.32 + 50 = 896.32$ that fits exactly my budget

I don't plan on overclocking for now but I keep the option opened (i5-2500k)
I don't plan to have two GPUs

Any thoughts, opinions, suggestions ?

P.S. Forgot to mention, the only reason why i'm upgrading my computer is to be able to play Rift in Ultra settings.

I'd like also to be able to play mmos in ultra settings that will come out in 2012 and 2013.

You mean 50$ Full Tower?, most mid towers require you to take the drive cage out for 5$ foot long cards. however i think if your gonna get a 590, your gonna need a more beefier Power supply lowest a 750 watt. but a 580 will be find on a 650watt. which is a good range of PSU's

Thanks a lot for your replies.

I went with Corsair GS800 incase I change my mind in the future and need some more power! Also got 16GB ddr3 1600 instead of 8gb

Big total of 904.28$ (still need to get a cheaper case to sell my old computer)
