^. Agreed save your money for two 580s. Plus two 580s and a Sandy i7 only use 700 watts.

TX650v2 is a great psu. Also, why not consider a H Series cooler from corsair?

I updated my PC Case and PSU. Any thing else to add?

Thanks

Hey mikevs a few more things before you finalize! From what I've read and heard OCZ PSUs have a habit of having some pretty noticeable coil whine.

I would also spend $10 more and get an asus p8p67 pro. MSI has had some problems with mobos and you can't beat the asus UEFI for a more intuitive bios and OCing.

Last thing is check out the samsung spinpoint F3s. They are even a bit quicker than the WD blacks and have been known to be exceptionally reliable. I have a WD black and it is a bit loud. I wish I would have saved some money and gotten a spinpoint. Good luck with your build!

I updated my list after taking your tips, Plus I added the link to the list.

But I will make it clear, after thinking it through, I will not change my CPU since I use multi-threaded apps since I render videos and animate from time to time, Plus I want to future proof it so its lasts me awhile.

Also, I still am not fond of SSD's at this point. Until they drop in price and become cheap like HDD's I will not purchase one unless absolutely necessary, I really don't care of boot up performance.

But, how does it look now? Also, any tips on building the pc without problems? This is actually my fist build from scratch. I have updated my video card, put a new layer of thermal paste, changed fans, ram, and HDD"s but have not started from all new parts. Any tips for it going smoothly without problems. I already plan on building it on a flat static free surface and using a grounding strap, but the last thing I need, is for something to fail or break something to send parts back unless they are defective on arrival.

Looking forward to hear from you guys final thoughts.

The F3's are good drives but you should also check out Hitachi's 7k.1000D 1tb. From what I read, they're the fastest 7200rpm drives to date.
