Or, if you have 20 more bucks to throw in, the best would be an

ASUS P8Z68-V PRO

Then I'd suggest to take a good GTX560Ti instead of a 570, you can overclock it to get the same performances at a much smaller price, especially with the MSI HAWK


MSI N560GTX-Ti


My two cents on the matter...
if he has the money, gtx570 tf3 > 560ti... especially for future SLI perhaps.

Also, if he plans to OC the 570, then it would stump the 560ti. Even if he were to OC the 560ti to a 570's performance.

The tf3 is known to be amazing for OCing too.

get a crucial m4. new firmware just released, relatively large increases in read/write speeds, which is pretty sick since it was one of the best SSD's prior. And newegg has the 120gb for $150 right now, get on it. If your putting together such a nice rig, spend the extra dough and get this. also instead of the caviar black, get a spinpoint f3 to recoup $30 towards the ssd

buy the ati hd6950 2gb, its cheaper and is the best bang for your buck, also try finding a cheaper psu i think you should be able to get corsair 650w for around 75 that will do the same work

Yes, you're definitely right about the GFX card.

Rep for you fixing my mistake.

I stand by my advice about the motherboard, though.
