Get a cheaper mobo, like the Extreme 6.
Get a GTX 670.
Get a 650w PSU.

You'll save a good amount of money.

Look at the GTX 670 seeing how it's $100 cheaper yet runs head to head with the GTX 680. The MSI or Gigabye cards are factory over clocked and have non reference cooling so I would look at one of those. Also a 500 - 550w psu will push one of those cards, and if your looking to leave the option open for a future SLI set up then look at a full size ATX board and not that tiny mATX board you have up there.

funny how a few people mentioned passing on the board as i *just* finished reading a review and saw how phenomenal it is.
ASUS Maximus V Formula Motherboard Review

though it did close with this:
Quote:
We have no hesitation recommending this motherboard, but it is expensive and there are plenty of excellent options on the market today. If you don’t need some of the ‘bells and whistles’ then you could save yourself some money.

but if you have the money . . .if you do get it, consider dropping the sound card because that board doesn't need one if it's onboard amplifier unless you are professionally audio editing/engineering.

btw, if you are going to spend $130 for a PSU, i'd like to suggest:
SeaSonic X Series X650 Gold $129.99

I'd drop the GTX 680 to 670, saves alot of money.
What are some recommended options for a motherboard other that the Maximus Gene?
Any PSU that can power my system, is effecient, and not loud is fine by me.
Oh, and take a look at the monitor. I was afraid of ghosting but the reviews say it's fine even though some are gamers.

i'll suggest a pretty "generic" build for around $1200. it has a reliable SSD and i believe to be one of the better GTX 670s along with a good gaming motherboard and a sufficient PSU for the build as specc'd. i didn't add the case since that would be your choice if you care to but i did add an OS if you need it. this might be a good start for you to consider and Why_Me can also provide some help if he has the time.

That looks nice. With the monitor it would be about $1495
May I ask if it would allow for future SLI in the future? I might want to go SLI.
I have a windows home premium install disc so that won't cost me anything.
Lastly, how does the SSD compare to the intel 510/520 series?

That Samsung he posted is a solid SSD for the fact it uses a Toshiba Toggle NAND controller. This SSD down below uses a SF Toggle NAND controller and it's also a solid SSD yet a few dollars cheaper. Look at these changes down below to looniam's build and be able to run two of those cards in SLI.

that PSU would need to be at least 650 watts to run a SLI set up, though that 750 watt antec high current gamer is a great price and a high end PSU that Why_Me posted (another 100 watts won't hurt) along with that cpu/motherboard combo and as good SSD for cheaper.

the big difference between our suggestions and what you first posted is swapping out the sound card for an SSD. yes a sound card is nice for an audiophile but an SSD will substantial increase your performance; maybe not in FPS while gaming but load time will happen in a blink of an eye.

At the psu's I find the x650 seasonic very good. And for a SSD I like the samsung 830. I don't trust OCZ on their reliability but they have good speed.
If anyone wants to know I will use this computer for gaming, surfing the web, powerpoints, and listening to music (have high wnd headphones.) Now if I trade out the sound card for a SSD in the future what kind of sound card could I get?

CPU: Intel Core i5-3570k, $230

CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO CPU Cooler, $35

RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL, $41

GC: EVGA GeForce GTX 670 FTW, $400

SC: HT | OMEGA eClaro, $185 (trade out possible)

HDD: WD10EZEX Blue HDD, $85

SSD: Samsung 830, $140 (trade out possible)

MB: ASUS Maximus V Gene, $200 (trade out possible)

Monitor: Dell UltraSharp U2412M 24", $299

Optical Drive: Asus 24xDVD-RW Serial ATA Internal OEM Drive DRW-24B1ST, $20

Case: Cooler Master HAF XM, $130

PSU: SeaSonic X650, $130 (trade out possible)

Updated my build build. If it says trade out possible next to it then it means I am open to alternatives.
Others seem fine but if you point something out I can change it.

Lastly, why is everyone so excited for SSD's?
All they do is increase loading speeds and boot times.
I am familiar with SSD's, infact the reason I wanted to build a computer is because a friend and I built his computer and it had a SSd in it. Yet it doesn't seem like something to spend over $100 dollars on to lose a few seconds.
I previously owned a old computer, with 512 megabytes of ram. Boots within 15 seconds but I have no problem with the one I have now, which takes about 40 to boot. But they are both old. The one I am using now has 2 gigabytes of ram and still windows XP and the old nvidia graphics cards like the 9000's. The one I have now is degrading.

Decent sized SSD > $185 sound card, $130 650w psu & $200 mini board.

Try playing something like BF3 that requires loading up levels (maps) on an SSD and you will see that your in the map running around while others are still waiting to dl said map and come in. The difference is night and day.

Get a full sized motherboard. The gigabyte ga-z77-ud3h would be good, and it has sli support. The ssd instead of a sound card would be a good choice also. A good 650 watt power supply would be a corsar hx650. The msi power edition gtx 670 would be a better choice for the gpu

What is better? Gtx 670 dcii top or the msi power edition?
So I drop the sound card. Will onboard audio be good?

after looking at a review of each on the same site:
ASUS GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II TOP review
MSI GeForce GTX 670 Power edition /OC review
both perform almost the exact same with the MSI having lower temperature and power consumption. (and a bit better in room for overclocking) edit: looks like i will be changing any suggestions in the future too.

i can understand an audiophile demanding a great sound when listening to music (not mp3s) or watching a video through a $5,000 home entertainment system. but the quality of onboard codecs today is more than enough to listen to someone talking or an explosion while gaming.

Another concern, is my ram speed good? Or should I get 1866 speed?
