Okay so I'm finally getting to my summer build. This is my first budget above $1000 and I plan on somehow stretching that over a $300 GTX 570 and a $350 i7-3770k. I'm willing to wiggle it a little bit to be able to get a good 8GB of RAM, decent Mobo, etc. I DO NOT need an SSD nor any more than 300 GB of memory (though a high read rate would be nice). Also I'm not buying MSI. MSI is cheap, but it's always hit or miss and for me it's always a miss.
