Alright I'm most likely going to order the parts tomorrow and I'm right at my budget. Any last minute suggestions or ...WARNINGS!? ^^

Also any thoughts on that ssd, I only want a ~60gb for around that price. Is that a high performance one or is there a better one in the same range? (I have a hd already the ssd is completely for performance)

Oh and obviously going to OC the i5-2500k to ~4.7

Looks pretty good. Could always kick it up to 8 gigs of that ripjaw . Also if you have a Micro Center in your area they have a pick up deal for the i5-2500k $179.99.

Looks good. I'd get a modular power supply though.

I would switch to corsair for RAM instead of g skill. The M4 is a good Ssd I have seen a lot of great reviews. That's going to be my next upgrade later on around Xmas.

This: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127594 GTX 560 Ti is much better, it's got the best aftermarket cooler out of all the other brands and that means it's also more easier to OC, along with running cooler and even less power.

You're also easily going to OC 4.7ghz with the heavyweight Noctua cooler, so no problems there either.

Other than that, it looks good. You could get a sandforce-based SSD as well if you want more horsepower, but the Crucial ones have always had the best reputation, stability and reliability.

Couple things
1. As other mentioned, just get 8gb of RAM, stuff is so cheap right now no reason not to.
2. See if BTEKCJB22 works for you on the SSD. It's 15% off for Crucial M4's, though it supposedly only works for people sent the code in e-mail (i didn't get e-mail but still worked for me).
3. Microcenter deal isn't as good at it looks. Between tax and newegg's combo deal, microcenter may actually end up being a minor difference or more depending upon what you buy.

ex. Newegg is $380 for that mobo + CPU.
At microcenter it's $370 (NY state), so only $10 in savings for the hassle of going out there.

4. PSU wise you can also consider the Antec HCG 750W which is $70 AR right now
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371049

5. I'd actually avoid sandforce drives for the moment. There's a root-cause-not-yet-found issue with all of them which results in BSOD's, hanging and crashes. The workarounds work for some people, but why risk it? M4 had an issue with hanging, but the root cause was found and firmware 0002 fully solved the issue. The 320's have that 8mb bug which hasn't been solved yet, and the 510 is basically a more expensive M4 with Intel firmware.

Agreed I think the HighCurrent is a just as good cheaper alternative to the TX750.
Bummer on the timing, that M4 was $100 on the shellshocker the other day.
Also it appears the NH-D14 is back up to $93 shipped, If so, buy it @ Directron for about $76 shipped.
