Nice.

Ok if you like the look of the uefi bios then go for an asus p8p67 pro board.
For a gpu the ati 6970 or nvidia gtx 580 Both are great. and will max almost any game at that resolution.

For a HDD i recommend the samsung spinpoint f3 1tb 7200 rpm.

Do you have a cpu cooler in mind ? plenty to choose from My zalman nps9900 max holds temp in check upto 5ghz wink.gif

i heard good things about the 212 CPU cooler...but any other suggestions would be sweet.

also I really really am going to hold out last minute for an awesome deal on SSD. I hear the performance on them stampede over the spindles.

I don't really see myself using even 300gb total anyway...

I just ordered exactly $1200 in parts for a new build for my brother

core i5 2500k
cm hyper 212 cpu cooler
asrock p67 extreme4
8gb (2x4) pc12800 ram
rosewill challenger case
evga superclocked nvidia GTX560 Ti
120GB agility 3 SSD
1TB WD caviar black
dvd burner
rosewill 630W 80+ power supply

My current personal build is nearly identical, except I have two 120GB SSDs and a GTX 570, and my total cost was closer to 1500

The hyper 212 cooler is great for the price but overall it is out of it's depth against the better more expensive air coolers
