Thats a fine build - i'd go 7950, drop the hdd and go down to 8gb ram, and get an ssd with the difference up to budget.

I'd get IB now if your system is frustrating u. If not, may as well wait.

Like I said, how frustrated are you with what you have? If you can't play games the way you feel you want to right now and it's just not fun, get the system now. If not, wait on Haswell.

I built a 3570k + GTX 670 system for about that sort of money in July/August, but that was shaved to the last penny to get in at that budget.

Why a 2.5" drive, more expensive and slower than 3.5" drives.

how dare you!! he was going for an intel, which is obviously superior. :) 

seems reasonable, pretty certain you could shave 50-70 off of that with a cheaper PSU, case, mobo and loose no functionality but its in budget.

Although i'd have spent the money you put into the AIO water cooler into the intel build, just because, although the intel -amd gap is smaller than it was. Actually trading blows quite nicely here:

Thanks 13th monkey, although the intel chip is good im just trying to tell people that AMD does actually have a good alternative these days.
