Approximate Purchase Date:march - april (hoping HHD prices go back to normal, and other price drops due to upcoming releases ;)  ;) 

Budget Range: 600-700 i perfer to keep it around 650

System Usage from Most to Least Important: online Gaming, FPS(online, so anything to help with getting the best ping would be great), movies, webbrowsing

Parts Not Required: keyboard, moniter, mouse, OS, could just use my old optical drive right??

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: i live in canada so anything to cut down on shipping fees and prices (i go for best value)

Country: canada

Parts Preferences: Parts that have good review and that are reliable

Overclocking: i dont think so

SLI or Crossfire: probably not

Monitor Resolution:1280x1024 currently but will upgrade to 20" + moniter later


Additional Comments: this is my build so far, so i hope you experts can spot whatever issues,compatability problems, future proofness, and stuff like that.

NOTE:slighty unsure on the PSU and MOBO.
i think i should get a better Mobo maybe? heard it improves online gaming

yes and, should i wait even longer? because since Ivy Bridge and the radeon 7000 sries are coming soon w and surly that would make the prices on the current one drop a fair bit, mayb ill even snag a ivy bridge Cpu insteand of the current sandy bridge selected.

fingers crossd for thos ridiculous HHD prices to go down :na:  :na:

Yes you can use your optical drive. If you wait and want and Ivy CPU then buy an Z68 mobo or wait for the new motherboards.Your build is good.

Z68 support future ivy bridge and most of them after you upgrade your cpu to Ivy support full PCIE 3.0 bandwith and SSD caching.

so do you think its a good idea too wait till they release Ivy bridge and radeon 700 series and grab the radeon 7850 and the intel ivy bridge 3450?

EDIT: so thats the only mother board currently that can use ivy bridge?

so this is what i have decided... im going to wait till march - april for the Ivy bridge release,so the sandy bridge prices will hopefully drop and ill get a i5 2400 instead.
and also pick up a radeon HD 7850 (is this better than the geforce 560ti?).

do you think this is a smarter choice, as the Ivy bridge mostly is for less wattage and better integrated graphics, or so i heard.

Nobody know yet how Ivy bridge will be.
I don't know how is 7850 because is not relesed. Maybe will be better than 560Ti.
