I didn't visit the site so I wasn't aware of that but as I said, G.Skill ain't worse nor better than Corsair vengeance so it's just for looks and brand. And it's too bad that they don't stock ASRock as their mobos are great. But Gigabyte UD3 will be at least as good as a Extreme3 gen3 so no worries there, it was just one good mobo out of many.
Just remember to buy a PSU from a good manufacturer. I was just checking what PSUs Rebel tech stocks and they do sell Antec and Corsair's powersupplies so no worries there, both are very nice.

The motherboards look good, just wondering will it make a big difference if i took maybe the Gigabyte Z68P-DS3 instead of the Gigabyte Z68XP-UD3? because its the same chipset for alot less. As for the psu this one looks pretty good http://rebeltech.co.za/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=39_85&products_id=8614 its got a pretty good review.

That power supply is fine, as long as you don't go crossfire or like add 8 hard drives, ect.

I personally would get a 700W powersupply incase i wanted to upgrade to a crossfire solution in the future. But that is personal prefrence.

I'm not familiar with that mobo but it looks Ok.
The psu looks fine too and it'll have no problems whatsoever with your setup. It's 650W big brother is R150 more and it's what I'd suggest if you're planning on crossfire 6870 in the future.

That sounds like a good idea think I'll go with the 650w not a bad price and future proof. Also whats the difference if i get a SATA 3 HDD or a SATA 2 HDD?

There's no difference between SATA2 and SATA3 HDD's performance-wise because 7200rpm HDD won't even max out SATA2 speeds. So get the one that's cheaper.

I built my desktop for $1,000 excluding monitor. I feel like I got a lot of bang for my buck. 2500k will deem viable for at least 2 years based on my estimate. Also my graphics card is unlocked and overclocked so I basically got a 250$ 6970. Most mobos' are going to perform pretty closely if they're all around the same price point, so I would base the decision of the features of the bios and such. Some are more overclocking friendly if that's what you're interested in. My hard drive was $39.99, and my dvd/cd-rw drive was $19.99; I couldn't be happier. I also got my h60 cpu cooler for 49.99 so there are many ways to save money and still get a monster for your dollar. If you game at 1080p, and enjoy eye candy I would look into 6950 2gb versions for a longer lasting rig. I also think a 2500k would be ideal if you can swing it. I know in the US we can get spoiled with prices, so I can't really say what is a good deal for you. Either way you go good luck with your build, and get what you think will perform the best.
