  1. From where do you know how those parts will perform ?
    Now you know the 2500k is a verry good processor and 560Ti is a good video card.

    Why wait for Ivy Bridge, when you have the best gaming CPU in the market? You know the best way to buy a new released CPU is when after 4-6 months when you can read users review about its performance in every benchmarks.
  3. Im just wondering will the ivy bridge z77 mboard make a big enough difference to justify waiting 2 months more?

    I can't say anything because It is not even released yet. Z68 chipset boards LGA 1155 socket will also be compatible to Ivy Bridge CPU's. If you go to the Intel's Website it doesn't say anything about Ivy Bridge yet, they only say it made in 22 nm architecture.
  5. I would find a slightly used / refurbished hard drive because I feel like a 250gb one will make you regret your choice quickly unless you really are not going to be storing very much at all on it.
