Thanks to all the people that have helped me answer all my noob questions for my first attempt to built a computer. Here are my final selections from New Egg:

Corsair Carbide Series 500R Black Steel 129.99 ( 114.99 if I mail the rebate).
Intel Core i5-2500K 219.99
CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX750 V2 104.99
Mushkin E.B. 8GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 99.98 (because they had good ratings from users and look cool lol)
Mushkin E.C. 90GB SATA III (SSD) 109.99

ASUS DRW- 24X DVD Burner 19.99

ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 Z68 121.99

Pre- Total 806.92 (minus 50 in rebates + 115.12 on fed ex I hate UPS)
Total $872.04

I could have been less I had chosen the UPS route 806.92 – 50 = 756.92 minus 2.99 no rush = $753.01)

Have windows 7 home premium and I just need to buy the corsair h60 ( I don’t like the 212) at best buy for 70 some but have a 100 dlls gift card so is kind of free lol …and of course my free pair of 550 ti’s from my bro and wife ..not bad since something like this would cost more at ibuypower.com wish was temting since they are offering the next new mobos on orders.

I waited for today in the morning to submit the order and thats good becuase there are alot of specials and promo codes check the complete you DIY red square on the main page.

I was not going to buy the power supply and dvd burner but i rather sell my current computer as is and sell the PSU to a friend who is asking ..that can go towards lowering my bill on this build ..lol.

Thank you all, and yes, I'm happy !!

Very nice, that should be a rockin' little unit... If you haven't done SSD yet, that'll be a treat.
Enjoy.

I'd return half that memory, and get as big a HDD as you can with it and what's coming. But it's all good.
