Looks good. If you plan on running dual monitor gaming (which would be dumb) I would have suggested 2GB for the card, but ur fine. It should run BF3 on fairly high settings.

I have to agree with a lot of the comments on the topic. The 2TB HDD although decent just seems like one big point of failure. Priced very nice but just seems to me that having multiple drives especially when it comes to saving important documents etc is better.

I would drop the P67 and go for the Z68 Chipset boards. Around the same price [ Link ] and might offer slightly more than the P67 can [ smart response is def one ].

As for a cooling solution, it was said above me. The Hyper 212 is a solid, reliable cooling unit. The arctic is nice don't get me wrong, it can hold decent temps but in this situation it is better to follow the pack than lead lol, go with the 212 you will not be disappointed.

ok, this is what I did.

I removed GPU! I will wait until BF3 comes out and will buy probably a better card for the same money. I hope so.

Changed MB and HDD. it' roughly 690 right now.

My personal preference?

i5 2500k
ASRock P67 Extreme4
8Gb (4x2) G.Skill DDR3-1333 CAS 7
Crucial M4 64Gb SSD
2x Samsung Spinpoint F3 1Tb
XFX 550 Core Edition PSU

Stick with the stock cooler and integrated GPU until you decide what you want. Fyi, MSI really turned themselves around for Sandy Bridge, no more weak-VRM designs that plagued AMD for so long.

Almost any single-GPU card will run on the XFX. I chose the G.Skill for tighter timings, while still keeping 1333Mhz. The 212+ is an excellent choice, as is the M4. Good luck with the build

Summary of where to buy parts. (You're lucky to live near a Micro Centre, looks like some pretty awesome deals. I now know why everyone is jelly of people who live close to Microcentre).

http://www.microcenter.com/single_pr...uct_id=0354589
http://www.microcenter.com/single_pr...uct_id=0364085
http://www.microcenter.com/single_pr...uct_id=0315397
http://www.microcenter.com/single_pr...uct_id=0352167
http://www.frys.com/product/6552683?...H:MAIN_RSLT_PG

If you want to swap HDD with "Black Edition": http://www.microcenter.com/single_pr...uct_id=0347355

Finally just buy that bundle off Newegg or if you want to get everything at one place Mircocentre has the CM HAF 912 at $47 AR and the CM Xtreme Power 600W at $50 AR.
