Hey, I appreciate all the advice. Can I ask though why you went with the Seagate HDD? It seems like there's reports all over the place about that particular drive being prone to failure.
Also, how long have the GTX 680s been out of stock? It seems like everyone is looking for one!
I haven't heard that. I know the Seagate SATA II had some firmware problems that lasted for what seemed forever, but that was a few years back. If your not purchasing until this summer, there will be plenty of 680's before then to go around. Also Ivy Bridge is due out April 29th.
I just noticed though that you don't plan on SLI. If that's so, then the build can be cut down in price...mobo and psu.
