Here are the (Current) specs:

GPU:GeForce GTX 580 Evga
PSU:CORSAIR HX Series CMPSU-1000HX
Primary HDD:OCZ Vertex 2 120GB SATA II MLC Internal (SSD)
DATA HDDs:SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s

It looks great but, i read a lot about Sandy not like corsair dominators too well. I'll check out that PSU though since i've been getting tons of recommendations for one. Lol, also i'm pretty much bent on getting that mobo.. (iunno why tho )

Nice rig!
I will be buidling basically the same system, except the Corsair 700D for the case.
I'm still debating what mobo and ram
Looking to spend around $2500.

i think u spending way too much bro , 1st of all 580 is realy overpriced now concidering 570 costs 200 bucks less and will give you couple FPS less in games then 580 , take a look at this build :
Mobo+Ram1 210$ AR
Mobo+Ram2 235$ AR
Galaxy 570 320$ AR
MSI 570 340$ AR
EVGA 570 350$ (free shipping)
CPU+Cooler 340$
SSD 120GB 200$ AR
Case+PSU1 190$ AR
Case+PSU2 230$ AR
HDD 65$
Sound Card 70$ AR (EAX 5.0)
DVD|RW 17$ (free shipping)

total 1440$ , enought cash left for another 570 in SLI , pro gaming peripherals and what else ur soul desires .
