Mobo: Asus P8P67 Pro
GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 570 (maybe OC)
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) Model F3-12800CL7D-4GBRM (don't really plan on OCing the RAM)
PSU: Corsair Enthusiast Series 650TX
HD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB
DVD/CD: ASUS 24X DVD Burner OEM
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OEM
Zonet ZEW1642D Wireless Adapter
for $1210.90 total. How's it look?
^^I went for home premium OEM for ~$90 on newegg, as I don't really need the professional edition.
Drop that seagate. WD Blue or Black, Seagate is complete crap imho.
Why the choice against the CM 212+ ?
Also see if there is something other than that Antec. It's not a bad case but its very heavy and doesn't do justice to some of the nicer cases around..
At 99$ + 13$ shipping look in the F/S section for an all aluminum case or check newegg for some cheaper Lian Li or something.. personal choice of course but you will be blown away from a 100% aluminum case.
I'd say get a 2x4GB kit 1600MHz preferred....
