Why Is that exactly. There pretty much junk and a tiny bit better than a good after market heatsink.
Don't waste your money on a Corsair Liquid CPU Cooler. The Hyper 212 you picked out is a greats heatsink one of the best on the market.
I'm running one now pushing 4.8 on my 2600k with ht enabled np.

Buying from only one site really sucks away on your budget, NCIX, Microcenter, Amazon, B&H, SuperBiiz are all great places to buy from. We would not recommend any places that would steal any sort of your information.

And hopefully newegg will get some 680s back in stock soon, you just have to keep refreshing the page. Whenever the 4GB and non-ref cards come out, the 2GB ref ones should come back in stock.

So basically you are saying, load times will be faster, eventhough you have to wait for the rest of your group to do anything. SSDs Do not benefit online games, they benefit single player more, and the load times are a difference between 20 and 30 seconds. For ~$80+ you can put that into a better GPU and have better graphics.
And boots dont matter on a gaming machine.... xD

Great build, my attitude is to always cut out frills like fancy cases and liquid coolers unless you need it and put that money into more gpu or cpu power. Also, you could even put the money from an ssd into more cpu or gpu power. But overall great balance you've achieved.

I think the caviar black on its own is sufficient for a gaming pc, I love mine.

Ok, even if it's not an MMO if the game has to read any information on the hard drive it would be able to read those textures or whatever faster. If you're leveling in an MMO new areas would be able to load faster along with areas that aren't being utilized by your ram. Even in non-mmo's load times, readings, new areas, new levels... etc lots of stuff can benefit from having an ssd.

And boot times don't matter on a gaming machine, but it's still pretty freaking awesome loading in 5 seconds. Might mean the difference between you getting a raid spot or not tongue.gif. I am really for SSD as when you do build things and upgrade you'll look for the improvement and sometimes they might be slight or might be pretty big, but the largest noticable upgrade ( aside from going from like a 6800 to a 500/600/6000/7000 card or like a 2.0 duo core to an i7 or something ). It is one of the bigger performers for the dollars. But it can always be added in later.

I have a 256GB SSD, a crucial M4. And yes, it is GREAT for startup times, I turn off my computer every time I leave the house because of it. But, it offers no impact for gaming, I have played skyrim on it and on an HDD and the only difference is that I do not have to wait too long during load times. I do not get better FPS, better textures, or better gameplay. It just makes the loading times faster. Saying you should get a SSD to guarantee a raid spot is completely bogus. You need skill to get yourself a raid spot.. If you are really worried about textures being loaded in MMOs, put them in a RAM disk. and have them load from there.

A 64GB SSD wiill take away ~$80 from the GPU budget, a 128GB SSD will take away ~$120 from the GPU budget. I would rather have that extra $$ on the GPU and get the most FPS I can get.

The might get you a raid spot was just some humor. While a 256 gig ssd is over kill a 64 gig for ~80 bucks is still something i'd invest in. The decrease in load times are very impressive and are noticeable right away. No need to tweak any settings. It's just a plug transfer data and enjoy and for the 80 bucks you save what are you going to spend it on? You have a 2500k. lets say you go to a 2600k.

2500k--> 2600k = ~80-100 dollar difference.

The marginal difference in the 2500k and 2600k is very slight since it's for gaming. Most games don't use HT and the extra what 2 mb of cache? Not to mention a 2500k will be fine for future gaming all that's needed might be a slight OC and the 212 that he's getting will be sufficient enough to cool it if he even wants to push it hard.

570 gtx to a 580 gtx is 80 bucks. But he's already saving that 80 from going down to a 64 from a 120.

all the other parts of his system are perfectly fine.

Ok MAYBE he can spend the 80 bucks he saves on some ram? But honestly 8 gigs of ram is plenty enough for gaming/normal computer usage.

Why not get an 64 gig SSD if all the other upgrade options are marginally better or cost more than OP is willing to spend?
