    Looks good. If you wanted to drop the price a little you could do a 500gb HD, prices are crazy right now. But $117 is a good deal so... its up to you. Maybe drop it to a 500gb, and get a cheaper ssd. Might raise the price a little, but it makes windows SO much faster, its worth it.

    Good luck!

    What is the online gaming? A 550ti could probably be replaced with a dirt cheap 6850 (around $120 now with rebates).

    The i5 + Z68 board seems overkill. Why not go with an i3-2100 or i5-2300?
  3. online gaming = shockwave ,etc i thought about an i3 build but couldnt decide on mb
