Is there another mobo you could recommend for the 2011 set?
Why the crucial M4? havent read much about them.
How are the blue drives? ive only ever owned black.
Ive never heard anything about the zotac company? Reliable?
As for the ODD, i need to have Bluray burning capabilities
lga1155 will not go past IB so its at it end of life it will become lga1150
lga2011 will get IB-E
the m4 is a good drive but i would get the intel 330
zotac is a good brand and with the card link its a reference design so it will be the same as all the other reference gtx 670s

Either of those power supplies are good. Of course Seasonic is more reliable but, that doesn't mean Rosewill isn't. At the end it's your choice. The rosewill capstone is good but if you are willing to spend $40 more then the Seasonic is good too.
Other than that everything seems good. Except, what CPU Cooler? Or are you going to leave it at stock speeds?

Get a corsair H100i from the start so that later on you don't have to deal with removing the Intel stock cooler + TIM.It's just 100$ or something and it's awesome,you can overclock your i7 to 4.8Ghz (if the chip is capable at around 1.35-40V) with awesome temps with the cooler.When i have the opportunity,i'll get myself h100i too,hyper 212 + isn't just cutting it for extreme 4.8-5.00Ghz while prime testing or IBT smile.gif

+1 to the H100i. I plan to get one soon as well. It's perfect. You get good fans that have high static pressure for the dual 120mm rad.

^ This, but switch to an H100i, 8GB of Samsung memory, WD10EZEX for the HDD, 256GB 830 instead of 840. And a Z77X-UD5H, its a brillant motherboard that is far cheaper than the Asus ROG one.

Yeah, change to a WD Black, and leave the two SSD's in RAID 0. I'm not great with MoBos, so yeah.
