So far I'm looking at a grand total of $1415 or $1460 depending on the case. One hour until Ivy Bridge release, if it's still slated for a 23rd release. Excitement... lol.

$510: EVGA GTX680
$205: i5-2500K ($15 Gift Card)
$150: Kingston HyperX 3K 120GB
$145: ASRock Z77 Extreme4
$130: XSPC Rasa 750 RS240
$90: NZXT Hale82 750W Modular ($30 MIR)
$25: Corsair Vengeance 2x4GB 1600 ($30 discount)
$20: Asus DVD Burner

$185: NZXT Switch 810
(Total $1460)

$140: Corsair 650D ($20 MIR)
(Total $1415)

I'm looking at this NZXT HALE82 750 modular PSU on NewEgg that's going for $90 bucks after MIR. From what I've read, it's identical to the SeaSonic M12II 750 which get's excellent reviews. Does anyone have any experience with this PSU?

When are we supposed to get shipments of GTX 680s? Should I start planning on a 7970 instead?

switch the SSD to M4 or Samsung and the RAM to Samsung which would be better have a look at THIS go with these Samsung RAM ya going with 7970 is a clever move you will save about 50$ there thumb.gif PSU the NZXT 750 is fine but i would rather say 850watts would be more better incase you CF the 7970 in future and for case NZXT 810 is the Ultimate buddy go for it thumb.gif

I REALLY want the GTX680, I've been running AMD processors and ATI/AMD gpu's for 9.5 of the last 10 years. The 680 is a legitimate #1, if only nVIDIA would pick up the ball and get them on shelves for us to buy.

I was going to buy the Samsung memory, but they're sold out everywhere. Between that memory and the GTX680's I'm really batting a thousand. mad.gif I really don't want to pick up a 7970, is there any word on when 680's will be shipping? The 810 case is pretty slick, if only it wasn't high gloss aka finger print magnets. As for the SSD, StorageReview has the HyperX 3K neck and neck with the Intel 520 and gives it the Editor's Choice award. It is slightly slower than the Samsung reads, but faster writes while costing $10 less. Is it really substantially better than the HyperX 3K?

Is this a typo? In the conclusion of Guru3D's review of the IB processors they say this.
Quote:
Next in line for the enthusiast will be the 3570K at 212 USD (non K model is 194 USD). This might become the most popular processor, at least we think it will be. The L3 cache is only a hint smaller at 6MB but it {3570K} still hyper-threads to 8 units and the default clocks are only 200 MHz lower than the 3770K. You can tweak that out of the processor in like 5 seconds. At 212 USD, that's going to be a very interesting processor alright.

The 3570K doesn't support HT, does it? That wouldn't make sense. And it's only 100 MHz lower clock, not 200.
