Agreed with 1600 ram and a different case. The Antec 902 is better but too expensive, can get better at that price point.

Since you are willing to just about spend top-case money on the 900, Have you considered a nice high end full tower?

I'm a bit confused on what exactly constitutes a "high end" full tower since a bit of googling has found me $200 to $300 cases which I cannot afford with my $1200 budget. I'd like to keep the case at around $100 or so.

some more looking on newegg has found me this
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-196-_-Product

and this
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119197

Both have very similar prices and similar reviews, not sure which would be better. At least both are quite a bit bigger than the antec 900.

As for RAM, upgrading to 8 GB I think would be the best option as well. But if I were to OC a 1333 mhz to 1600, would I need some sort of extra cooling? Quite paranoid of cooling issues, since I don't usually OC things.

Speaking of cooling, how much would I be able to OC the i5 if I got the CM H212+ rather than the scythe ninja? It is cheaper, so if possible I would like the CM.

As for the HD, I don't think I'll be doing RAID even if it does speed things up unless after everything's set I still have a bit of leeway with the budget. Loading times don't bother me too much; in-game performance is the highest priority atm. I could get WD blue here http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136767
for practically the same price as the seagate, but the newegg review is a 3/5 which makes me hesitate, even if newegg reviews aren't the most reliable source. WD black is about $10 more :/

Finally, the last tidbit of this long list, would a 650W PSU be enough if I OC the i5, the RAM, and possibly the GPU? I don't need to OC the i5 to sky high levels, but around 4.0 GHz would be nice.

I went from a Caviar Blue to a Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB and the speed increase was noticable. Spend $5 less and get better, OCN strikes again.

What I mean by high end full tower is the NZXT Phantom for $140 and such cases around there, high end, top of the line full towers. I mention that because you are approaching that price point with $100 mid towers.

What do you think of the NZXT M59 for just $56 shipped?

Newegg reviews is to be taken very lightly however wd blacks are better than the blues

Otherwise spinpoint f3 is also a good choice.... I'm a wd guy personally.

You should be able to do 4.0+ on the cm 212+, depends on the voltage.

Ram oc is fine they don't get very hot but the ram has to be able to reach the speed, again without much of a voltage bump...

alright, taking in to account all you've guys said, here's what I think the final will be...

Case: CM HAF 922 (not willing to go high-end, M59 was kind of small)
CPU: i5-2500k (probably will OC)
CPU Cooling: CM Hyper 212+
Mobo: Asus P8P67 Pro
GPU: EVGA Superclocked GeForce GTX 570 <- will go back to normal gtx 570 if there's a problem
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 (epic deal for just $49.99)
PSU: Corsair Enthusiast Series 650TX (650W is enough...right?)
HD: SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB
DVD/CD: ASUS 24X DVD Burner OEM
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OEM
Zonet ZEW1642D Wireless Adapter

for total of $1195.39. How's this one look? I think the superclocked edition is worth the extra $20. Can also upgrade to Corsair 750TX for extra $20, although I don't know if I should.

edit: I can actually upgrade to scythe mugen 2 and the 750TX and keep it at $1223.90...is it worth it?

2 seconds on afterburner and you have the superclocked edition...

Don't need the extra juice but that's entirely up to you.
