What is your budget?


What is your resolution?


What are you using it for?

Mostly gaming.

What is your upgrade cycle?


When do you plan on building it?

next 2 or 3 weeks

Do you plan on overclocking?


Do you need an Operating System?


Do you plan to add a second GPU for SLI or Crossfire?


Where are you buying your parts from?

  1. Low Profile RAM, Agility 4 SSD aren't great I would get the Samsung 830 Series 128GB SSD Retail Box for 6$ more.
  2. This Plextor SSD utilizes a Marvell controller and is rock solid. $90.00
    Plextor PX-128M5S 128GB SSD

    Low profile RAM so you don't impede that cpu h/s. $45.00
    G.Skill Ares F3-1600C9D-8GAO 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3
  3. I would get a Corsair HX650 power supply. Much better than your current on. Of all the components in your build, the power supply is arguably the most important.

    The Agility 4 is great bang for buck, but there are many mixed feelings about OCZ. I would choose the Samsung 830 or even the Intel 520s.

    Your other choices look great. Hope this helps
