here it goes

Case: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=6531504&sku=C283-2094

Motherboard: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=61782&sku=YYD1-SABERTOOTHP67R3

CPU: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=7073159&sku=I69-2600K

GPU: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=7040152&sku=E145-0572

RAM: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=40739&sku=C13-5720

HDD: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1083959&sku=TSD-500ST

CPU Cooling: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1241962&sku=C13-2170

OS: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5213932&sku=M17-7302

Optical Drive http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Asus+-+DRW-22B2S+Internal+DVD-Writer/4710853.p?id=1218512777891&skuId=4710853&st=optical%20drive&cp=1&lp=6

Is the O.D. alright? i wasn't sure...

POWER SUPPLY: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5309345&sku=C283-1228

Now I will sli with 2 570's in the future, and overclock the gpu to 4 GHz. I've done power calculators, with the 2 570's setup w/ oc and it was well below 800w even on 100% load. Just want some opinions/ stories maybe of whether or not this psu will do.
i will have the 2 120mm case fans, and a led 140mm and 200mm fan which i will buy off amazon.

Overall what do you guys think? Im on a budget, and it worked out well to ~1450.
plan on building Saturday after ordering tomorrow so any input will be much appreciated seeing as I am definately doing this on saturday.

Thanks!!

For what you are paying for the 570's you would be better off just getting one 7970. This would cost less, give you great performance and still leave space in case you wanted to add another one later.

As for power, the RS850 should be fine for what you are building.

Go with a Z68 chipset.Upcoming Ivy Bridge compatibility and PCI-E 3.0.Maybe something like this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157271
That's the cheapest one.You can switch out if your into a particular brand.As for PSU,that one should be fine.I got me the 800W Silent Pro Gold and it powers my CPU and mobo,3 GPU's ,SSD,optical drive and H100 fine.

Got it. Still for the price difference I would try to find a way to make it work

Quick question, i have these two mobo options, im trying to find the differences but having trouble. Is one better than the other?

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=61782&sku=YYD1-SABERTOOTHP67R3

one is 5 bucks more, what is the difference??

I wouldn't get that DVD drive, if look, it's an IDE drive, definitely get a SATA model.

The case will most likely be cheaper here:

Is there a reason why you are only buying from tiger direct?
