  1. The FX-4100 will handicap your videocard
  2. No matter what, do not get AMD FX. They will ruin your system even with your GTX 580. Get an i3-2100/i5-3570K with a Z77 motherboard.

    Thanks for the feedback, i've recently decided to go with Intel i5 2500K and Asus Maximus V Gene.
  4. If you have $40 more, the i5-2550K is better, because it comes with no Integrated Graphics and overclocks better.
