I know....later on when I have money and time.
After I get this first build done and finished, I will probably end my phase of interest in computers for a while, so won't be concentrating on aftermarket stuff.

Wow no Overclocking on That system?

Sandy Bridge is known for its ability to hit 5 GHz and higher. Also...that seems pricey for a micro board. I haven't priced SB motherboards, so that might just be me. I heart Asus, though.

I would suggest you go for the sapphire toxic 6850..... an as for the processor......wait an see how the amd bulldozer performs compared to sandy bridge...and as for amd you might even get better performance off the bulldozer as compared to a sandy bridge of the same price range.....opt for at least a 850w psu as it would provide enough headroom for future upgrades in case you decide to crossfire....

I was going with Sapphire before too but the Asus service center is $15 min drive away so I decided to go with as many Asus parts as possible.

I won't be doing any CF for sure, barely have the $ for one GPU...

I double checked that Supercombo and it really is a steal.

The PSU is OCN recomended
http://www.overclock.net/power-suppl...-supplies.html

4GB DDR3 1600

1TB HDD 7200 RPM 32mb Cache

The Case looks good

The Motherboard is PCIE x16/x8 USB 3.0 and SATA 6GB/s

The CPU cooler should get you great results too.
