What do you intend to use it for? If gaming I would trim back on the ram and mobo and use those resources for better gpu

i dont game much... but im an EE student and do alot of simulations, and calculations...
I been using a q8300 with 8gb of ram and its working fine (some times its a bit slow) thats why im upgrading and giving my current system to my parents..

I picked that video card cuz i want to try rift and the secret world when it comes out.. but i dont game much.. I can prob cut the video card.

I know this is prob an overkill but i want it to last 3 years with out upgrade... I have to money now not sure if i will later thats why i want to get kinda the best..

Some things I would add:

1. A storage hard drive. SSD are great, but you also need some space for larger files.

2. Aftermarket heatsink.


Now some questions:

1. Do you really need that expensive of a motherboard? It is a boss motherboard, but you could trim out some coin there. Same with the case. Now if you want to put some money into them then both are great choices.

I recommend the ASRock P67 Extreme4 or Asus P8P67 Pro.

It appears that I overlooked the fan link. That HSF is great.

How much RAM do the applications you run use on average? If you don't want to up your budget on RAM, you could go with 8GB of 2133 or faster.
