Double post, oops.

Anyways, I just planned on writing the recordings to the SSD, taking the ones I need to the HDD and then wiping the DXTory record folder afterwords. I wouldn't be recording extreme measures of RAW .avi, only little 30 second snippets or so.

So what would you suggest then in all reasonable aspects. Recording to the SSD or HDD.. SSD's a lot faster but less storage, which is why I wanted to just transfer them over.

7200 RPM HDD's are more then capable of 1080p 60 fps(My WD green drive can record 1080p 60fps without drops). I would personally record to the HDD and play on the SSD and just remove/install games accordingly.

You waited this long. 3 more months is only going to give you more time to plan, learn and spend your money more wisely. You get the benefit of buying hardware that depreciates much less quickly (ie, in 12 months your parts will be worth 0.7 - 0.8x what you purchased them for. If you buy now, the parts will be worth .04 - 0.6x what you paid for them.) You also get the added benefit of having the latest and greatest for perhaps over a year instead of a few months.

I would use this time to troubleshoot your current rig, learning more about hardware and troubleshooting in the process.

Yeah I would go with a nice gold/plati psu in the 700-ish range. Not that going higher hurts anything, though.

The Kingwin is nice. It's a rebranded Superflower, which I have the 650 version of and am super happy with it.

Thank you.

To all, I'll update the list with your improvements, thank you very much.

haswells supposed to add ~10% performance, its mainly improving integrated graphics and power consumption. I say just build what you want now. This is coming from a guy who had a q6600 for 5.5 years and just upgraded.

You're just speculating at this point. Regardless of the performance increase, Haswell's release will drive down the value of Ivy Bridge parts.

Haswell isn't coming until June at the earliest, and we already know (from Anand) that it only offers about 10% clock for clock over Ivy (with much better iGPU). The only question about it now is whether it will have better overclockability - but it's not like you are going to be CPU limited with a 3570K at 4.5GHz.. If your current system is shot, buy now.

If you are buying now, don't get the Sabertooth as it is overpriced. Just get the regular Asus P8Z77-V if you want Asus, or the Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H - both of which will perform the same. You also don't need 850W, and the AX line is overpriced as well - just grab a Rosewill Capstone 650M ($75 after promo and rebate) and be done with it.
