Here's a modified version of what I posted a few days ago. Just want to get some final feedback.

CPU: Intel 3570K http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... $210 w/rebate

Motherboard: Z77 ASRock Extreme4 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $140

CPU Cooler: Cooler Master 212 Evo http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $35

PSU: Undecided. Any good recommendations for around $100 or less? Preferably modular.

Case: Corsair 550D http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $140

RAM: 2X4 GB Corsair Vengeance http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $50

SSD : Either Crucial M4 or Samsung 830 128 GB. I was going to go with the 830 but prices went up again. ~$150

Optical Drive: LG DVD Burner http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $17

GPU: Sapphire 7850 http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... $250

OS: Windows 7 64-bit $100

Total projected cost: ~$1192 + shipping


Are there any glaring flaws? Possible improvements or revisions? Incompatibilities?

I should also add that I'm searching for a suitable 23-24 inch monitor. Right now I'm between the Dell U2412M and the Viewsonic VP2365-LED. Not sure what to get so recommendations would be appreciated.

Everything looks good to me. A lot of the same parts in my rig. Good choice on SSDs. Don't know much about that tower though.

I would suggest:

Yes, but the price is definitely right, especially with that discount code.
