Keep that, that's good. Quality parts, however way overkill for what you want.

looks good.. thumb.gif over budget now..thinking.gif: why 16gb ram? gonna set up ram drive?
hdd prices will come down this year..if not..they'll price themselves out of existence
64 gb ssd is good enough.for os + a couple games...pair it with a 500gb hdd..and wait for price drop wink.gif
Just tryin' to get you back in budget wink.gif

Get 64GB SSD and 8GB RAM to save money. Put them saved $$ into Graphics card like 560Ti 448 core

What was I thinking. lol

Downgrade the two to save money. That's all

$1000 and general purpose do not make sense. A general purpose build will cost you less than $500, and will be more than enough if you're not going to game.

-Why are you buying 2500k? i3-2120 is already an overkill.
-Why are you buying an aftermarket cooler? Just use stock.
-Do you really need a Z68 board? You can easily use something simpler.
-16 GB of ram? really? You don't need that for gaming, you can probably live just fine with 4, but since RAM is cheap, 8 is more than enough.
-You don't need a 128gb SSD. Pickup a cheap 64gb M4 for $80 here. More than enough.
-560 ti? What for? If you're not going to game.. hell, if you ARE going to game a little bit, a 550 ti (which is still a HUGE overkill), can be had for $100 here

If you truly want to drop a $1000 on something you don't think you will use, that's your call. But if you're sure that you just want a good general purpose computer, you're throwing money into the wind.
