if u have an extra $100 to spare why not get an i7 2600k chip instead?

minus the $230 for the i5 add ur spare $100 and that rounds up ur total of $330 the exact price of the i7 2600k cpu

Do you plan to overclock?

if so an aftermarket cooler is needed, even thou Ive seen some SB chips hit 4 - 4.5 on stock but you would get higher with aftermarket cooler.

If this build is specifically for gaming, I would not choose the i7 2600k over the i5 2500k. You we see negligible differences between the two.

Also, I would go with MSI's Twi Frozr II model of the 460 if they have it. It'll keep your video card a lot cooler and help it last longer due to better heat dissipation.

On a final note, can anyone confirm if that Biostar motherboard is SLI ready? I only see Crossfire on the motherboard labeling and on the description. If it does not support SLI, you may want to wait a few more days until an SLI capable board appears (in case you ever decide to upgrade to a dual GPU setup).

Make sure you realize that because that Biostar board features the H67 chipset, it will NOT support processor overclocking period. I would hold off until the full array of LGA1155 boards come back to Newegg.

As nice as that will be i dont think i need it, will i see that much of a difference in games like GW and Shogun2?

I dont want to but the more time i spend on these forums, the more i am tempted to the dark side... , but i will keep your advise in mind.

Nooooooo, i thought the new one that was suggested could, this one BIOSTAR TP67B+ LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

board was never changed in the OP so hes assuming that your using a H67 when you have been told and switched to a P67, dont worry the p67 will overclock.

If you've got an extra $100 around, don't get the 2600k. Dump it into cooling or better video card. Nothing against the 460, it's a great card. But you can do a lot better right now.

EDIT: As for PSU, that Antec you've got is a great PSU for the price. The thing is, you'll only need 650W if you're planning on SLI.
