The mobo in my sig rig failed in December. I've been using my HTPC for everything (i3-540, 4GB RAM, onboard video) until a couple weeks ago. I had to replace the mobo in it because the PCI-E wouldn't work with my 5770. So right now I've got my HTPC with a 5770 in it. I am still getting critical errors/restarts with my HTPC, CPU is the only part that hasn't been replaced at this point so I figured I might as well just finish putting together my main machine. I got a GTX 570 from newegg a couple days ago when it was on sale for $288 AR and need to get the rest of the parts. I kind of wanted to wait for Bulldozer to upgrade but I am getting sick of my HTPC and the repeated problems I have been having with it.

Asus Crosshair IV Formula
AMD Phenom II X6 1090T
Corsair Dominator GT 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3-2000 (8-9-8-24) 1.65v
Intel X25-M 80GB MLC SSD

Then using the parts I already have:
ABS 595 Case
Lite-on DVD Burner
Noctua NH-D14
MSI GTX 570
Corsair TX750 PSU

I am also planning on getting a 240 or 440 for Physx but will probably wait to get it. Let me know what you think, what you would do differently or what you think would be the best way to go right now.

Thanks
