The problem is that I am looking to cut down the costs abit, and the 1000w costs less than the seasonic.
The 850w corsair is not modular as far as I know, and I do need a modular one.
the 1000w is cheaper than the 850w because the 850w seasonic is the best quality made psu you can buy, unlike the cheap tacky 1000w. remember the psu is they key to your rig.

@Mannerheim
Any special reason to swap the cpu cooler?
I dont have the "Prolimatech Megahalems" available here in Israel.
But I do have the Noctua one, which also costs around 30$ more.

@gre0481
I am from Israel, so I am not sure if the prices are relevant, as they are all in ILS, Israeli new shekel.
But if I convert my total amount, it comes down to around 1,800$, which is the maximum I can spend.

@Roweyi7
Got it. I guess I will stick to the seasonic then.

Here is my take on a similar system. I would not go with an i5 personally. They are good chips but for a little more money you can get a beefier i7 by sticking with the socket 1366. Also, I changed a few parts around to allow more money to go toward the CPU. This CPU loses about 250Mhz clock speed but you are getting 8MB of L3 cache instead of 6MB on the one you picked, so it should be a bit faster.

So here goes:

Video Card: Palit 2gb GTX 560
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-099-_-Product

RAM: G.Skill 6GB DDR3 1333Mhz
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231223

PSU: Thermaltake 850W Modular
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817153106

MoBo: Gigabyte GA-x58-USB3
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128456

CPU: Intel Core i7-940 Bloomfield
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115201

Case: Cooler Master Haf 912
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...&Tpk=haf%20912

CPU Cooler:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835608018


The case I chose was about half the price as the one you chose and the cable management and cooling options in the HAF 912 are second to none. The MoBo is the same brand and price point as the one you chose and it has USB3.0 and Sata 6gb. The Video Cards have the same amount of memory and are probably exactly the same as the ATI cards when it comes to performance, at the same price. I am just an Nvidia man myself. Finally, the CPU Cooler I chose is about $20 more than the one you chose and its not very attractive. But, from a performance standpoint, you wont find a better cooler.

I hope this helps.

Hey,
Thanks for the input.
I saw few benchmark and the HD6950 came on top of the 560 every single time..
And the i7-940 costs much more than the i5, which sadly, I wont be able to afford in my tight budget.
And the cooler/case are looking good.
I will probably get them both.

I took some of your suggestions and made this one:

Code:
Core i5 2500k 3.3GHz, s1155, 6MB, GPU Core, Tray
P67A-UD4-s1155 Core i3/i5/i7, Interl P67, DDR3 2133, 2xPCI-E
3x2GB G.Skill NQ Edition Triple Channel
HD 6950 2GB GDDR5 DX11 2xDVI HDMI Mini 2xDP PCI-E x2
Noctua NH-D14 CPU Cooler 
HAF922 ATX Black Case (No PSU) 
Toughpower XT Bronze 875W Modular PSU Active PFC (Retail)
They dont have the HAF912, so I went with the 922.
Any big difference?
Or should I just grab the ‏CM 690 II Plus?
Heard it is a good one.

Also the UD4 boards are faulty right? I should wait for the B3 as it seems.
