I have a similar monitor and love it; you could even consider getting a second identical one down the line for more screen real estate. With the GPU you chose, you will have a few different options to connect them, so you should be fine.
I was going to suggest switching that Kingston SSD for the Samsung 830 because Newegg has it on sale today for $79.99, but it sold out already haha. But again, you will be happy with what you picked out, so no worries. As far as keyboards go, I have this and like it a lot, but I'm sure you can find something similar for cheaper. Definitely treat yourself to a nice wrist rest while you're at it wink.gif
I like the keyboard! I added it.

Seriously, don't get a Corsair just for the name...

- HyperX 3k is a Sandforce SSD so it doesnt have top tier performance... Plus $140 is A LOT... See the better Samsung 830 was $90 today.

I had the Rosewill in my list. Then a buddy of mine suggested the Corsair. He said don't cheap out on PSU. (I'm not knowledgeable in this area so I don't know which to actually go for..)
As for the H60 Liquid Cooler. It's only 30$ more and will have better performance. (Correct me If I'm wrong..)

I went with your suggestion and have the Samsung 830.

I would suggest keeping the case you chose on Newegg because it has an extra rebate, so it will end up cheaper than what he listed. And I'm not quite sure what happened with the second list, must have pasted over it wink.gif
Do you mean the original wishlist? I keep updating the same one! smile.gif

I've used a fair amount of both Rosewill and Corsair stuff and they seem of equal quality to me. If you can get the same thing from Rosewill for cheaper, I say go for it. I used the like Corsair a lot more than I do now; their stuff seems overrated and at least a touch overpriced.
I wouldn't use the H60. If you really like the idea of watercooling and want some better performance, consider the H80 or H100, otherwise stick with the cheaper one they recommended because it really will have the same performance as the H60. The $30 cooler will work totally fine for light to moderate overclocks; that 3570k will run hot after a certain point, so if you plan on pushing it somewhere down the line, then consider putting some more money into a better cooler. Otherwise, I wouldn't worry about it.
And for that last question, I don't know what I meant haha. You're doing great smile.gif

Rosewill makes a couple of very high quality PSUs, The Capstone series and Green series are my favorites.

That can be viewed here.
http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/PublicWishDetail.aspx?WishListNumber=20465265
I ditched the HDD and went SSD after learning from you guys how fast they really are. I chose an Asus monitor, and Windows 7 OEM. I also added in a Blu-Ray smile.gif
I'm looking at Keyboards at the moment. Anyone have suggestions? I can't go overboard on the price here. I really want a Chiclet style keyboard, (I hate huge keys on a normal keyboard). But if anyone has suggestions please throw them my way! smile.gif

This is a better and cheaper closed loop water cooler!!!

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835106188

scratch that, Newegg went back up on the price.

X79 is a waste for a gaming build. Extreme CPUs are not needed for gaming with only 1-2 GPUs. 1155 will be viable for gaming for a long time after it is "dead". Hell a C2Q is still very good at gaming. And the 775 socket released in 2004.... rolleyes.gif


I simply suggested it in case he is crazy like me. I can't buy hardware knowing it will be replaced in a matter of months - so I figure i'd let him know all the options. Ivy Bridge will be good for gaming for years unless graphics technology begins developing rapidly and games become more CPU intensive. Which is something I highly doubt at this point.

EmbraceTheOne,

 

The Rosewill CAPSTONE series are all top-of-the-line power supplies, but the HX750 is not.  The HX750 costs $144.99 while the 750W modular Rosewill CAPSTONE is only $99.99 shipped:

 

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182264

 

With the modular CAPSTONEs on the market (there are non-modular versions), all other power supplies become foolish purchases.  Again, the Capstones are top-of-the-line.  I know that the Rosewill name is not synonymous with quality, but the power supplies that Rosewill used in order to create the CAPSTONE line are Superflower Golden Greens.  The modulars are Golden Green Pros.  These are in the "best of the best" category while the HX750 is not.  Sure, the HX750 is indeed a high quality PSU, but you would be getting completely ripped off.

 

Please don't consider any other power supplies on the market.

It's a computer!

People here know what they talk about they either read dozens of reviews about a certain thing or have had personal experience with things.

So the PSUs they are recommending are good ones.
Corsair is just well known brand to general public, but they aren't the best, and certainly are more expensive than others.

you could get el cheapo $25 psu and it would work, it would be loud, ineffective, would say that it has 550w but it really has 380w and things like that.
so when saying not to cheap out on power supply it is meant for you not to get something like that.
but getting a nice power supply that gives you the most it can, good efficiency, modularity, enough wattage you need, silent, etc.
and that also doesn't mean get the most pricier one because the most expensive must be the best...

if you don't plan on getting 2x of the most power hungry graphic cards then you dont need that big wattage

for example this configuration:

Intel Core i7 2600k @4,5 GHz @1,35V
Intel DP67BG
2x 2GB DDR3 1600 CL7
1x 2TB HDD SATA3
1x optical drive
Thermaltake Toughpower Grand 1050W 80+ Gold
HD 7950

consumes this amount of wattage, measured straight from the wall power plug outlet (excuse me if that is the wrong name for the thing, english is not my native language)
2D ~100 W
DiRT3 ~245 W
Furmark ~260 W

so that is 260W while running furmark for the whole pc

you can check out some other results over here
it is just different graphic cards same pc and benchmarked and measured wattage consumption (it is in croatian but if you understand numbers you will understand everything:))

ugh, i overwrote a bit about psu, so will keep it short for the rest...
i would stay clear from corsair memory also, had way to much bad experience with it not working properly, and also threads here about people having troubles with pc not performing on par because of it
get g-skill or samsung as the best choice

i have had bad personal experience with asus monitor and wouldn't get one ever again, it was just impossible to set colors on that thing, and it actually really hurt my eyes to work on that monitor because it was impossible to make it pleasant for work, sure the colors were vivid and movies looked awesome, but for working on that monitor it was a disaster
but that is just my experience nothing else

you are alse getting way too expensive motherboard, which you don't need

as for cooling i think h60 is again too expensive and you don't get how much you paid for, but its ok, if that is your wish
also i noticed you had a lot of corsair things in your build, maybe your friend who suggested all those things to you is corsair fanboy?
and also you changed from amd to nvidia, i again suspect fanboism from your friend who suggested.

The reason why his friend is telling him to "not cheap out on the PSU" is the usual reason when a Rosewill power supply is being recommended:  the name "Rosewill" is not synonymous with "good power supplies".  It's very common:  his friend probably said, "Rosewill?!  Dude, that's not a good idea.  You do not want to cheap out on the power supply.  Corsair is the best".  Every time I see this, I just facepalm.  I'm getting sick of it.

You should read this SSD Guide before you buy 1.
Also, I recommend the Samsung RAM I think you had it in your build before then changed it? I've never seen a negative review about it. Everyone loves it. If I didn't have so much RAM already, I would get some for myself.

Haha love it! Honestly, I could never buy another Corsair product and would be happier that I didn't. Not that all they make are terrible products, that's not true; it's just that I feel like much of what I'd be paying for is their advertising costs (and other similarly unnecessary overhead), which is probably why so many people are familiar with them and as such why they are subject to the "Apple Effect," albeit to a relatively smaller scale wink.gif
