Mmm, good to know... thanks.

I see. It's a bit more expensive but I'm sold on a SeaSonic PSU so I think I'll go with it over almost anything else

If you wanted quiet, the PSUs should do fine, as PSUs hardly run very loud, the Corsair PSUs are made so that the fan only spins under higher power loads, and that's when the GPUs drown out the sound. Not sure if the Silverstone does that. I would just get a 128Gb M4 tbh and then a HDD. I mounted the HDD as far back from the front of the case as possible so that it does not create much noise, just had to be careful with the spinning parts.

If you really wanted silence, go with the Fractal Define R3 or R3 XL.
Mmm, I see. I think I'll grab the 560w SeaSonic Gold 80Plus. I'd prefer to keep everything on the SSD, I really hate hard drives in every way. I'll just manage my space, and since this is for games only I'm sure I can do it well enough. Eh, I'm pretty sold on the SilverStone RV02-E, considering it's one of the best (if not the best) cases for air flow, and I really like the way the motherboard is rotated. Thanks for the help!

And also, just to be on the safe side, I'd bump up the wattage just a bit...a 600W would be great in your case. That's just me though, I tend to go over on my PSUs on purpose to leave that ample headroom just in case. This HX750 was first used in a build with an X4 965 (running at stock) and single 5770, for example. Hope this helps.
Yeah? Mmm, it sounds pretty good but I really like SeaSonic. I might pickup a 560 80Plus Gold model. The 560w model should suffice for me, and it does help, thanks =)

Have you thought about this board? It seems to have a little better specs on it when concerning SLI or crossfire. Only a few more bucks

Neither SLI or CF are in my future. Is it any better aside from that? How many VRMs does the P8P67 have? This seems to have 8+2.

I am not finding much information on the ASUS. Maybe some here knows because I am not up to speed on determining the VRM. The one thing I can say about the board I recommend is that the gold caps last 2.5 times longer than the traditionals and the CMOS clear button will be on the back with your usb, sata, ports, so you won't have to open the case if you ever need to reset your CMOS. If you EVER decide to do a SLI or Crossfire you have the option to do both. The Asrock also supports true THX if that matters at all to ya The ASrock also has a debug display as well. Might not be a big deal to some though.

gabead has a point about the Extreme4. Firstly, it is Z68, and has video output for when your GPU isnt in your system for wdv reason. It is Gen3, it support SLI, great for resale value. Looks better imo, with black and gold accents. The VRMs should be 8+2 for both the Asus & the Extreme4, but honestly that is enough for normal people, even if you wanna reach 5.0Ghz. The Extreme 4 also has neat accessories like USB 3.0 panels.

There is a reason why many people here at OCN recommends the Extreme4. Because it is good value and is just good.

Well the version I gave was the P67, but yes the Z68 does have the video option.

Haha, I see. Thanks. Mmm, I'm most definitely sure I will never use SL or CF but if it's a better board I might go with it. Thanks for the help

I'm confused now.

Not thread jacking, but I have an Extreme4 Gen3 P67 board on the way. It seemed to be recommended as a great board for the price.

But now, over in the motherboard section, all I see is people NOT recommending it. They are saying the USB 3.0 controller is problematic, it has major OC instability issues, runs way to hot and has terrible vdroop issues.

Could eveyone just give a conclusive "Yes" or "No" concerning the Asrock P67 and Z68 boards.

Is it worth getting at the current cost, or would it just be a better idea to buy something else

Thanks!

I tossed up a poll in the motherboard section.

Edit// Concerning the topic of Power supplies. I have a HX650 and it is dead silent. Never had an issue with it. Cable management is extremely easy due it it being modular. I recommend it.
