Hey Guys,

I've done some looking around and I've come up with something. I'm looking at purchasing this within 24hrs, so final words would be appreciated :) 

Cpu - 3570k w/ thermalright silver arrow fan
Motherboard - Asus p8z77-v lx
16Gb of kingston 1600mhz hyper (4x4)
Aus Gtx 680
Ocz 650w Zs
128gb Crucuial M4
White phantom case

Total before taxes -$1,460

I'm building it, primarily with gaming in mind. I went with the 3570 over the 2500 mainly because I was able to get it for a little less, but also it has been reported to be just slightly better. I didn't go with a full on bells and whistles Mboard, mainly because I'm a minimalist.

Any comments?

Are you going to get a storage drive? I'd suggest getting one because the only things you really want on your SSD are applications/games/OS.

Yah , I already have a 1tb storage. maybe I should have included that

I would not get 16GB of ram for a gaming rig. 8GB is usually more than enough for gaming. otherwise, looks pretty solid to me.
