Thread Starter 
hi,
i have been building and modifying computers since 97 but recently i have not been able to find time to start a new project since 06. i may be out of shape on the tech now so any reccomendations or suggestions is greatly appreciated. i have been saving and wanted to start a new build with a budget of 2000 to 2500 if only needed.

quick info on myself and preferences...
located in usa. live about 30min from microcenter.
i prefer intel cpus and nvidia gpus.
i will use mainly for gaming. single 27 moniter.
really liking the corsair 600t white case atm.
already have mouse and keyboard plus win 7.

after reading this forum here is a basic list of items to start from

CPU : 2500K
RAM : 8GB 2x4 Kingston 1600 CL9
MOBO : Asus Sabertooth P67
VIDEO : PNY GeForce GTX 580
SSD : Undecided
HD : Samsung F3 Spinpoint 1TB
SOUND : SoundBlaster Fatility 7.1
COOLING : XSPC Rasa 750
POWER : Corsair AX850 maybe lower watts
CASE : Corsair 600T SE

thats just an idea starting point hopefully u guys can lead me the right way.
ignore my system specs below it just me being bored.

*UPDATE*
Bought the following already :

Intel 2500K
Kingston 8GB Limited Edition HyperX 1600
Corsair 600T SE White
Asus Sabertooth P67

Correct. A HX650 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...9012&Tpk=hx650) would probably run your SLI set up as well, but it's better to be safe and get a 750W PSU. As for your SSD, if you haven't already purchased it, I would not recommend the OCZ Vertex III. They've been notorious for problems and stability issues. Crucial, Intel and (arguably) Kingston are the top SSD brands right now.

Good call on the P8P67 Pro. I have it and love it. You'll get the CPU to 4.5Ghz with only a few tweaks...you should be able to hit 4.8Ghz no problem (probably even 5+). Rest of your build looks solid; can't go wrong with a GTX580 and G.Skill Ripjaw X!
