the cost to performance ratio can be beat very easy.

there are some really cheap P55 and even H55 boards that OC like crazy, but that MSi will do just fine. Good luck with the watercooling, if I was you id take it slow.

I'd do the ram b4 the 560, RAM is like the oil market. right now they are burning off their inventory and will jack up the prices by Q3 of this yr. DDR3 is dirt cheap right now.
