It depends on what you intend to do.

1 SSD Caching - Adds a regular HD and SSD together to get the benefit of speed and space without as much cost.
2 Identity Protection thingy for pass card
3 GPU Overclocking - Allows you to overclock the 2600k or 2500k's GPU (Not needed with GPU Card)
4 GPU Switching - Allows you to hook one connection up to your PC and chose which GPU you would like; Sandy Bridge or GPU Card. (It's not automatic, you have to chose which GPU you would like to run before executing a program)

Otherwise No lol

I can't seem to find what I initially read but here is a site with benchmarks as well.

Hey, thanks for the link.

I checked it out but now I'm a little confused.

How can the P8P67: http://www.mwave.com.au/sku-28023466...1155_Dual_DDR3 be more expensive than the new P8Z68:http://www.megaware.com.au/index.php...ucts_id=124211[url]

Sorry for all the questions, I'm just trying to be super careful with this build...

You're comparing the Asus "PRO" with the "DELUXE", where the Deluxe offers more stuff.

If you check the Z68 version of the "DELUXE" you will should see.

Either will work for you. I really haven't checked into prices all that much, but I will assume the P8P67 will come down a bit with the new board out.

If you dont need SSD caching and will be using your own GPU, there's not a big advantage, (that I can see) to purchasing a board with the new chipset at this time. Good luck man, happy shopping!

Hey guys, thanks for all of your comments and suggestions. Without them I wouldn’t be able to build such an awesome computer:

Special thanks to kcuestag and firedude721 for helping me out with the new P8Z68 mobo.

Here is my final list:

Mobo: http://www.megaware.com.au/index.php...ucts_id=124211
SSD Drive (to utilize the SRT in the P8Z68 mobo): http://www.i-tech.com.au/products/71...x_OCZSSD2.aspx
Monitor: http://www.pcsol.com.au/Prods/Viewso...2250WM-LED.asp
GPU: http://www.mwave.com.au/sku-42060600...85_0Gbps%29_Cl
CPU: http://www.umart.com.au/pro/products...id=4&sid=71638
Hard Drive: http://greenboxit.com.au/product_inf...ucts_id=143789
Cooling System: http://www.mwave.com.au/sku-18020515...&_AMD_%28R
PSU: http://www.mwave.com.au/sku-34040737..._&_EPS12V_
RAM: http://www.skycomp.com.au/item/G-SKI...L9-9-9-24.aspx (8gb just because it’s so cheap and I multi-task quite a bit. I mean, it can’t hurt can it?)

Thanks again

Looks good to me!

Have you considered the Corsair HX750 instead? It's modular which means it will be a lot easier to hide the cables behind the motherboard tray to keep everything clean!

The rest looks good!

And don't worry, I'm here to help you out with anything you need!

I'd get a true power 750W it is the same quality, but it is semi-modular.
I'd also look for a 6950 with custom cooling, like THIS one. If that triple slot beast is too big, then theres THIS one.

Edit: nvm, they are too close to 6970 prices. stock 6950 is quiet enough to not need after-market cooling.

The Antec TP 750W is nowhere near the Corsair HX750's quality (80+ Bronze vs 80+ Silver ).

Also, for the price of those HD6950's with Aftermarket coolers, you could just grab a reference HD6970.
