I was going to say if you're going to not purchase until June, come back then because the landscape for PC components will be changed completely with the (pending) release of Ivy Bridge and new NVIDIA cards.

They could, but don't plan on it that soon. Even the 580s right now aren't being reduced in price that drastically. I don't like to plan builds around hardware that doesn't yet exist but that's just me.
