Looks like a solid rig to me. Don't cheap out on the HDD though, get a Samsung F3 if you can.

Maybe a second 6850 would be good too. tongue.gif But other than that, looks good to me.

Oh, and added ya to the list.

I read on a forum in Germany that P8P67 PRO-M will be better for gaming than the future ROG Maximus IV, but I can not find the link and I have doubts ...

For gaming, a motherboard has really little play unless it's got a flawed chipset. The P8P67-M Pro is definitely a good board, but it lacks the onboard X-Fi 2, more power phases, digi+VRMs, and Z68 chipset... along with a better color scheme.

For a single card system, I'd much rather get another Z68 chipset or the P8P67-M Pro, but since I'm undecided on SLI, I'd rather keep my options open.

For the size, I'd rather just go full on Mid Tower. It looks nice, but it's a big mATX case. The NZXT Vulcan is the largest mATX case I'd go for. The only way I'd get the Fractal Arc Mini is if the case feet can fit on my desk. Even then, with it being 19inches long, I don't think that'll happen.

Tanks for the advice, but its the only minimalistic higher end matx only case asides the antec p183. I dont want too much bling-bling and show off; the only thing i want to show of is the inside devil.gif This one will get a option for a window so i can see my gene-z, youre right by saying it is quite big for matx case though.

The only way it would be possible is if you had a dual gpu pcb and a single gpu pcb. There are only 2 x16 slots. The other one is only an x4 I believe. Not to mention that they would have to be single height.

I like your enthusiasm though!smile.gif
