If they send it to you and it gets broken in the post it isn't your fault they never packaged it properly!! This firm look like they would sell you the air in the case!! I wouldn't bother with them!!!

You wouldn't bother with them? Who do you recommend then? With alienware, they are more expensive for what you get out of them. Believe me, if I had the time, I would definitely build one, but I am caught up between work and college and get maybe 4-6 hours of sleep everyday.

Also, about 6 months until keplar/ivy? So I should just get the best I could get right now and not upgrade for a few years/wait for keplar or ivy?

Skip every single custom computer site out there.

Use OCN as your database, and order each part separately. Building it yourself lets you know exactly what your getting, is rather fun, and gives you satisfaction every time you peer over at your creation.

If you MUST get something now, grab an AM3+/1155 board. You'll be able to use current 1155/AM3 processors till their successor, and be ready for Ivy/Bulldozer on their specific sockets.

Grab the best GPU you can right now, your not getting anything better until next year.

So the sandy bridge compatible motherboards (1155) are going to be compatible with ivy?

Ivy Bridge will be on the 1155 socket, so it's the best way to go right now.

I think it's:

SB-E - 2011
IVY - 1155
IVY-E - 2011

Not to repeat what many others already said I highly suggest building it yourself, as difficult as it seems it can lots of times be a lot less hassle and MUCH cheaper. Many on OCN would be more than willing to help out, and if you choose to go that route feel free to PM me and I'd certainly be willing to help!

Hmm, what do you guys recommend then?

P67 mobo or the z68?
Also;
Single gtx 580 3gb or a gtx 590?

I don't want to run two cards (sli) and I am only going to run a single 1080p monitor. I -might- run 3 in the future, but I'm not too big on overclocking or running 3 monitors.

I hear what you're saying but for what you can buy the parts for, you're simply being ripped off. If I have to reccommend pre build I'd say look through a quality PC magazine and go from there...

If you can find the time it takes a couple of hours to get one built, nothing will fit in the wrong place and everyone here will help you set it up... That's what this site is for!!!

If you can wait six months for Ivy you can't be in that much of a hurry?? thumb.gif

Building your own is so much more fun....
