I want to run a GTX 470 so I am leaning a bit towards the EVGA setup since it can support SLI down the road. I wish I could get a cheaper 1156 board and a core i5, but I am worried it will be all 1366 by time I want to upgrade again. I really like the performance of the AMD for the price, but I would not be able to run SLI down the road.

2. Would a corsair 650W be a decent enough power supply for this type of setup?
i think it would be enough with single GTX470 plus some overclocking...but i'd go for a 750 for GTX470 SLI just in case

Now. The 24 pin and the 8 pin CPU power cables are round wrapped with black and the 8 pin can be routed under the Mobo. But you will need a 8 Pin extention to get around the board and to the plug.

The rest of the modular wires are flat ribbon type cables and can been routed easy around the Case without much trouble at all.

Thanks for the Question
i see...i'll need one. so i'm gonna be getting an Akasa AK-CB8-8-EXT cable...its 30cm extension will do the job...

and thanks for the answer btw

Yes. 650 would be good but a 750 will be better. Much better.

AS FAR AS Mobos go. If you are very careful and take great precautions double check every connection 3 times. and then update the bios ASAP from the website and then Make sure you did all the work with two pairs of rubber gloves and a hand book next to you. The i7 is for you.

If you want your 3 year old to help you put it together and finish faster and sacrafice a few FPS playing Crysis and not KILL your bank account then go with the AM3 The 965 and DDR3.

AS FAR AS Mobos go. If you are very careful and take great precautions double check every connection 3 times. and then update the bios ASAP from the website and then Make sure you did all the work with two pairs of rubber gloves and a hand book next to you. The i7 is for you.

If you want your 3 year old to help you put it together and finish faster and sacrafice a few FPS playing Crysis and not KILL your bank account then go with the AM3 The 965 and DDR3.
Thanks, this was the answer I was looking for. I had sifted through a bunch of benchmarks comparing the CPU's and all I could conclude was a difference of a few frames when running at super high resolutions. A single 470 GTX and 965 will be plenty fine for running games at 1366x768(westinghouse 32").

My final build list

AMD Phenom II 965
ASUS Crosshair IV mobo
Patriot 8GB DDR3
Corsair 750W PSU
ASUS GTX 470
ASUS Blu Ray Drive
WD 1 TB 7200rpm 32mb cache HDD
CM Storm scout(obviously lol)
