Ide say either go with an HX750 or 650 and upgrade mobo to a P8Z68 Pro board from ASUS. SSD it and then youll be much more up-to-date and futureproofed.

sorry all for the late replies.. was at the supermarket.. any way the budget doesnt matter and i will b using this for gaming... the reason y i got the 750w is because im definately upgrading to duel gpu in da future and the reason y i got gtx 460 instead of the gtx 5xx is because i cant get hold of any gtx 5xx series water block here...

about the hard drive, what is the difference between the sdd and my one??

I would save yourself some money and get the 2500k instead of the 2600k and the new z68 chipset is out from ASUS may wana look into that.

The SSD has huge performace increase with load times, startup times, etc.

Really? Maybe you should do some more research into it...

You seem like your sold on an ssd, and the Z68 platform will increase your load times past what an ssd and hdd would do. It combines them to create SSD performance with HDD storage. All onboard the MoBo. Not only that, but the GPU of the CPU helps in rendering and other video applications because the Z68 supports it.

You will definately see gains from your original system with a Z68 and an SSD.

The difference is the AX is more expensive, fully modular, and has a little better efficiency at load. Your system wont be using it at that load untill you get your second card to SLI.

Plus, I recommended this before I found out you didnt have a budget

You will definately see gains from your original system with a Z68 and an SSD.
1 SSD Caching - Adds a regular HD and SSD together to get the benefit of speed and space without cost.
2 Identity Protection thingy for pass card
3 GPU Overclocking (Not needed with GPU Card)
4 GPU Switching (It's not automatic, you have to chose before which GPU you would like to run)

I really don't see it as a huge improvement for him. The Caching technology will only match the SSDs speed because it is the SSD that is actually device that is responsible for the speed or caching.
