My Rig is about 5 years old and I have an itch to build a new one. So I am looking at building an Ivy Bridge Rig. This is what I am looking at so far, let me know what you think

CPU: i5-3570K


Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme6
*was looking into the Extreme9, but I talked to the Sales rep and I am not sure it is worth the 350 price tag he said it would have.


RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 1866Mhz

SSD: 2x Crucial M4 128GB (picked up for 87.99 each at Staples)

HDD: 2X Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200RPM (From my last build)

Power Supply: Not sure

Case: CoolerMaster HAF X

Any suggestions would be well received. The only thing in set is the i5-3570 and the SSDs. I dont really have a budget, but I would like to keep it under or around 2000

I would have just gotten one 128GB SSD as they are fast enough without RAID.

Get another. No-name brands have pretty high failure rates.

Well it hasnt failed in 5 years. And I think Odin is/was made by Gigabyte.

I guess it would be fine to keep it then.
