If you are going with a 570 I would recommend a non reference model. You said you where worried about how loud the 212+ would be, well that reference 570 will be much louder in comparison.
Some suggestions,Asus GTX 570
If you have no plans for SLI in the future. It should
also OC better, no guarantee.
$350MSI GTX TF3 570
be able to overclock WAY past the EVGA superclock version, but its never a guarantee. See sig for my stable 24/7 TF2 OC.
$370GIGABYTE Super Overclock GTX 570
Higher overclock MUCH better cooler.
$370EVGA 570 DoubleShot
No OC, but much better cooler.
$350GIGABYTE GTX 570
Clocks are almost the same, Has a much better cooler. $344.
When you start looking at SSD's I would recommend something 120+ GB the first time around. My old system had 2 64GB SSD's, OS on one Games on another. I kept 15GB free on each drive that's 30GB of free space. I went with 1 big SSD drive this time around and I like it much better, no more clutter, no more custom installs on the other drive, I also picked up 15GB because I keep 15gb free on 1 drive rather than 2.
When you are picking out a SSD you don't need to get the fastest drive on the market unless you are into benchmarking. A cheaper SSD will dominate any HDD when it comes to normal daily use, that's why I went with a cheaper A-Data. My single SSD outperforms my raid 0 10k rpm raptor setup by leaps and bounds. There have been some problems with controllers and you might want to do some research before buying.Edited by Max78 - 10/5/11 at 10:23am
