Not sure what to look at.. just getting into PC specs but tell me what you all think and if you have the same setup or similar tell me what you think of it.
Also any suggestions will be taken into consideration..

I would recommend waiting a little longer for the new P67 motherboards to come out.
Then grab a sandy bridge 2500, or 2500K with a slightly cheaper motherboard. The ram is good though

That for around a similar price, would be much more powerful.
