The graphics card was the next forum i was going(aswell as try avsim)
The 212 is trash because it's a cheap, inefficient HDT solution... the Thermalright(not Thermaltake, Thermalright is one of the biggest players in the business, one of the few innovators along side Prolimatech and a few others, like Noctua more recently) True Spirti 140 is a toned down version of the Thermalright Archon, it's an excellent cooler for the money.
I suggested a Z77 mobo because(as its name implies) it uses a new chipset, designed for IvyBridge(the successor of SandyBridge) which will be launched in the following days.. it functions equally well with both generations, it's superior to the Z68 in a few ways... higher memory clocks for one.
7950 over 580 for obvious reasons.. it's a superior GPU even at stock clocks, it overclocks better while consuming half the power and generating half the heat of a GTX 580.
