Scrap the ssd imo. 64 gb wont do much for you.

A pair of 460s are much for performance for your money. Dont listen to the whole 560s are coming. They are like twice the price for 15% performance increase. Ur call tho. Could get a better cooler depending on how long ur waiting of wc.

How much are the 560's going to cost? If they are less than $300 I will definitely wait for them if their will be a decent performance increase between the 470.

I agree with you. I have a 40gb SSD and I love the boot times and having it. Maybe others say it isn't worth it but I have one and I am loving it.

i will go 4 the 2500k and a 460sli or a 6970

ps: ATI drivers issues start when u try every release lol (I DO)
post #16 of 19
The DVDRW you picked out is IDE/PATA. Get a SATA drive instead.
post #17 of 19
order p67 pro instead evo. they are almost the same board.

and either gtx 570 or 560. new tech over old, always.

get 2600k only if you fold or encode audio/video, or a larger epenis. 2500k otherwise.

the rest looks good.

Swap the WD 1TB Black for the faster, Samsung F3 1TB. Tad cheaper too. Everything else looks good. GTX 470 is still an awesome fast card. Especially overclocked.

ssds are great. I ran my 4 7200 rpm seagates in a raid 0 before I bought the colossus and it's like night and day. SSDs are soooo much faster. The computer just feels faster too after installing one
