Ok guys. So now, I'm stuck on the GPU. Should I get the GTX 560 TI, the GeForce GTX 480 (Fermi), or the MSI N560GTX-Ti Hawk GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) ?

The 480 performs almost exactly the same as a 570, capable of maxing most games and running high on others coupled with a good cpu, the downside is it runs HOT. You can reach almost the same performance with an oc'd 560 ti, and that hawk is a sexyyy card. Either one would do the job, just make sure you have good ventilation for that if you go the 480 route.

i my self would change just a couple things, but to each their own.

as for the hard drives, id still stick with a seagate and this one would be my choice of the 1TB drives being as its a 7200rpm, sata 3 and 64 MB cache. some of the other ones about the same price dont have all that.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148840

for the ssd, i would go with the mushkin enhanced chronos vice the OCZ drive

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226247

and as stated above, there is no need to spend the extra on vengeance ram unless you want to just for the look. i have it my self and its great but the mushkin enhanced black line is great ram as well and it is cheaper and still black so it wont stand out on the mobo.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226191

everything else looks good though. according to the newegg cart, with those changes it all comes out to $971.91 and has $70 worth of mail in rebates, so around $900 after all is said and done.
