Hence the reason why I choose the gaming series power supply :] led fan ftw.
@bill4b0ngx
I see. Another aftermarket cooler instead of the H100 liquid cooler? And thanks for the keyboard/mouse recommendations!

And where are you buying from?

Buying from: whoever provides the items I need. No real preference :]

@RipperRoo Is there that much of a difference between the 570 and the 560ti 448 core?

Yes, but where do you live? America, Canada, Australia?

I will be able to help you more if you tell me where your buying.

Well 20% or less since you've chosen a great CPU i would go for a GTX570 along it if it is in your budget range.

Is the SSD you are looking at 60GB or 120GB? The description says 60GB, but the price list underneath it makes me think it's a 120GB.

If you want to save some cash, why not just grab a P67 board? There is no benefit to gamers using a Z68 board

ASRock P67 Extreme4 Gen3 is a nice board...
And I am not biased in any way.... rolleyes.gifrolleyes.gif

EDIT: oh and grab a 64GB Crucial M4 or one of the new Samsung Drives instead of the Corsair SSD.

Also, you may want to skip the DVD drive and go straight to a Blu-ray burner. Fry's has one on sale right now for $68.

@LegitSticks Oh sorry I didn't know exactly what you meant haha. San Francisco, California to be exact.

@8564dan yeah that keybaord/mouse seem to be the most popular!

@RipperRoo ah I see. Yeah a 570 might be stretching my budget right now.

@importflip >:]

@eus105454 Yeah its a 60gb. Do you mean the price for all corsair parts? Cause that four hundred something dollars includes the SSD plus all the other corsair products in my build. If you're referring to the $159 retail, its because this is Corsair's top of the line one. The Force series I think its called.

@Ironman517 My friend recommended me this board for my budget. and I figured since I saved money on all my other parts, might as well spend a little extra on the board. Plus I heard its great for OCing. I was contemplating the ASRock P67 Extreme4 Gen3 though...
Is there any major difference between the two SSD's besides the extra gigs of space?

@eus105454 thanks for the tip! Going to head there tomorrow biggrin.gif
