Thanks a lot, Carlito This is something new for me, but I can end up with some extra cash
in my pocket!
hm.. I am still wondering what mobo to buy though xD
ASUS P8P67-M or ASrock P67 Pro3
These seem to be my top 2 so far.. they are at the same price, but which will serve me better?

So hey guys, after a month, I took a final decision (I hope I won't changem y mind again).
I decided to wait more, be patiend and collect more money for a stable system for my budget. It will be a little bit over $850 but, come on, it will be worth the waiting, right? I still hope I will be able to finish it untill the end of the summer, as I hope prices will go even lower!

So here is the configuration I made, tell me what you think :

CPU: Intel Core i5 2500K
MOBO: ASUS P8P67-M PRO
GPU: ASUS ENGTX560 1GB 256bit (I have a question here, read below)
RAM: Corasir Vengeance 2x2GB Kit 1600MHz
CASE: CoolerMaster 430 Elite
PSU: Corsair CX500
HDD: Samsung SpinPoint F3 500GB

So it looks better,right?? My question about the GPU is, what is the difference between GTX 560 and GTX 560 Ti? I figured out that the 560 Ti is more expensive. So, which one would be better? It is not that more expensive, though.. Is the difference big or not?

So tell me your opinion. Em, do you think there is a way I can save some cash from this build? Like buying something cheaper instead of something Ihave already chosen? Everything is appreciated..
