Well, with Bulldozer right around the corner it looks like it is matching exactly what the 2500k can do and considering what I put into the build you are getting more for you money simply by switching out the 955 with a Bulldozer chip. Just my opinion though.

As for the PSU 650w is plenty.

Actually 650w would handle an SLI of the caliber of cards you guys are choosing but I went with a 750w for my build because the 560Ti is a beefier card if he ended SLI'ing those.

SLI is basically getting a 2nd graphics card. In case you were asking that.

Find a friend near a microcenter and you can save quite a bit on a 2500k+mobo deal. Besides that try and get a open box 560Ti from newegg. If you have a tracker on the open box page you can generally snag one up within a 2 week timeframe. MSI and EVGA have great warranties even if they are open box.

If you got time before you buy those would be my suggestions to save yourself some money for a SSD or better GPU.

OMG, ur so right! Its like 50~ cheaper! And i live like 10 mins away from a microcenter. Is everything that cheap or just the 2500k? Just to double check, is this it http://maps.google.com/maps?cx=c&um=...e&ved=0CAQQ_BI

Also, whats the difference between the samsung hard u posted and my chosen WD hard?
