Hi I am sorry if this is in the wrong place. it is my first post.
I am building a new System en of this month. My Budget is about R8000($1000)
I am from south africa. hehe

This is what i will purchase:
Mobo , Cpu , Ram , Gfx card , Psu , HDD(secondary)

This is what i will keep
Aopen HQ08 case(modded for 2 PSU's and window in side panel)
Samsung 21.5" monitor 1920x1080 rez 5ms refresh rate
standard keyboard and mouse
seagate 500GB hdd (as primary HDD)
Samsung DVD writer.
2 x Icy Dock MB228MGR HDD Cooler + Panel

The system will be used for allot of things, Mostly for gaming and creating mods and maps for games.
I like experimenting with overclocking but don't take it to serious.
Would love to play latest games at 1920x1080 med to high rez.

Nice build.. are you stuck on getting Nvida? The ATI 6850 is a bit faster by 5 or 6 frames more and the ATI is also cheaper, but depending on what Nvida maker you are going with.

I really don't mind ATI, just from past experience I have had more "luck" With Nvidia,
almost every ATI card i buy breaks down on me withing a few months, have tried various brands, Personally have never had problems with Leadtek cards

You're going to have to change your board or CPU as they're incompatible.

You'll want either an H67 or P67 board. And seeing as how you have a K-series chip, you'll want the P67 series for overclocking, possibly pushing you over $1k. If you want to cut some cost out, get the 2500 and H67 mobo instead.

oh boy where to start ....
1st. P55 board is incompatible with Sandy Bridge (P67)
2nd. never heeard of that ram manufactor and the price seems to be jacked up
3rd Leadtek is a mediocre video card manufactor
4th thermaltake doesnt make good PSU's
5th 1.5 TB barracuda is gonna be slower then most 1TB drives

out of all that id recommend u change to something like this :
Mobo:Asus P67 pro or Gigabyte UD4 160-180$
CPU : i5-2500k 215$
RAM : Corsair\\G.Skill\\KingstonX 4GB 40-50$ 8GB 80-90$
GPU Asus\\Gigabyte\\EVGA\\XFX GTX 460\\HD 6850 150-170$
PSU : Seasonic\\XFX\\Corsair\\Antec 650w+ 50-80$
HDD : WD Blue\\Black 1TB or Samsung F3 1TB 50-60$

good luck

Oh I forgot to say..
Here in South Africa parts are extremely over priced.
here are some examples.
Gigabyte GTX460 768MB = $262
EVGA 768-P3-1362-ER SuperClocked GeForce GTX460 =$265
Corsair DDR3-1333 4GB (2x2GB) = $94
Corsair TX650W Power Supply - 650W = $153
Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD4 = $314

Maybe i should just wait until next month and spend $1000 - $1800
