Additional Comments:

I would like to have an SSD for the OS and other essential programs. If possible I would like it to generate with as little heat that I can get away with. Prefer a 1.5TB - 2TB HDD.

I'm not trying to play BF3 on max settings but I would like to be able to continue to play new games a couple years from now on medium settings.

I would also like to be able to use this with my 50" Panasonic Plasma every now and then as well.

This will be running on Windows 7.

Thank you in advance!!

Alright after becoming busy for a while, I am ready to build the computer now. Sorry for my long delay in responding. After talking with a friend and using the threads here I have come up with this list.

CASE - Cooler Master HAF 912

CPU - Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz

RAM - CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB

Motherboard - ASUS P8Z68-V

Cooler - COOLER MASTER Hyper N 520

PSU - Corsair HX750 or 850
Looking for suggestions on what to get for this.

GPU - EVGA 02G-P4-2680-KR GeForce GTX 68
Anyone know where I can find this similarly priced around neweggs 500$ that is a reliable site? Newegg hasn't had it in stock in quite a bit.

HDD - Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB

SSD - Corsair Force Series GT 120GB

I'm just looking on the answers/suggestions to the couple of questions I have under the parts I listed and if it will all work together efficiently. Thanks!
