  1. you going to have a difficult time trying to find a 680, 7970 is still a great card

    Depends on what you have already, ivybridge is still a solid upgrade over anything thats non sandybridge. Haswell is more then a year away
  2. Right now i only have a decent laptop, i5 5XX, thats why i want a new custom built Pc, its just that i heard that haswell is going to be a huge upgrade from ivy bridge.
  3. right now i found a antec khuler h20 620 for 49.99 at ncix after MIR. you might want t check it out

  4. its a pretty good cooler over hyper 212. also there isnt much of a performance benefit from 1600mhz and 1866mhz
