Sorry forgot the RAM

The 2000 USD is not the limit, dont really care aslong as its reasonable

I wont be using a 100 usd case, plastic is not my kind of thing - And I like the ability to hide your cables in the Corsair 800D.


Im using SSD´s only, and have a NAS server with my "old" disks.

To address your video card question: Yes, the GTX 570 is quite considerably faster than the GTX 460. For the power supply, go with the Corsair AX850w. And for the memory, go with a set of 2x4GB G.Skill Ripjaws X 1600MHz (CAS7): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231431

in that case i would highly suggest going into a full wc loop:
Change the gpu to this one

here are my suggestions for wc loop parts:
Rad
Res
Cpu block (idk if this company sells it with the 1155 bracket but it is compatible)
Pump
pipes dont mater as long as they are 1/2" id
and coolant
and finally you will need some thermal paste

and as well you will probably need some extra barbs

Thanks, allthough you can easily do 4,5-5.0 without a WC setup, waste of money for my needs.

The H-70 is WC CPU cooler, which should be enought for my gaming rig.

580 is nice, but I'd rather use the 570 OC versions due to cost sufficient.

650W PSU is enough. Get a higher PSU only if you plan to run more than 1 graphic card.

If you plan to run more than 1 monitor (e.g. HDTV) run max games or run multiple games, go for HD 5970 (it's better, price is almost the same, and outperforms GTX570 a bit).

yes i agree, and also i highly recommend that you want tell 2012 when ivy bridge will be able for sale if you are going to spend 2k+ on a computer the ivy bridge will literally blow your mind with its preprocessor power and it will come in a dual cpu compatible so if i had 2k to spend i would wait it off till ivy bridge and get two of them
