Good thing you told me that Silverfire... One of my friends bought the MSI 990fxa.. and he totally recommend it.

Someone knows a good motherboard for a 2500k???

And the video card... RADEON??? or nvidia?

I was reading in another thread about the RASA kit... XSPC 750RS240.

How hard is to set up the cooling system?? and how do I buy all the parts that I need? what parts I need? ahahah
NVIDIA. Watch for the flames.

I really love that NZXT Phanton White case!!!!!!!

Nope... I was looking into some razers mices.. or a steelseries mice.

coolermaster/corsair are the BEST psu right? I will look into a good 850 and maybe I can find a good deal/offer.

More than 8gb rams is useless right?

So hard to decide... I have to wait and see what BD brings to the table, but it's so HARD to wait. Every day I wake up... and I see this deals, or what people talk about in the forum and I just want to start buying the parts!! oh mannn

I use the Razer Abyssus love it.

I like to stick to Tator Tot's OCN Recommended PSU list

Even more than 4gb is useless in most cases, It all depends on what you do. However, you can get an 8GB set for so cheap, It's kind of a "might as well" thing now.

Yep I think most of us check the egg everyday xD Electronics Anonymous in these parts I tell ya.

For a socket 1155 system, go with the Maximus IV Extreme from Asus. It is their best P67 board, and is the ROG counterpart to the socket AM3 Crosshair series.

It is the board I am building on right now, and the features/aesthetics are great. 10 USB 3 ports, not that important now, but great for future needs. Also the overclocking features are a dream with the BIOS these boards have.
