Other than personal brand preferences, it looks good to me!

Looks good. I would consider a Vertex 3 SSD over the C300 and also a Seasonic X750 power supply. I would also recommend the ASUS P8P67 Deluxe over the Sabertooth (more power phases). You should probably get a different G.skill kit, the 1.5v Raptor X is certified for P67. I'm not sure how P67 would handle this low voltage memory as 1.5v is the intel spec for memory for it.

I forgot to ask, should I wait for Bulldozer? How superior are they to 2600k? I went with the vengeance 8gb as well for RAM

performance of bulldozer is up in the air...not much is known...just wait till the reviews come out for bd and then make your decision just like I will in a couple months.

Nobody knows yet. It very well may be, and initial hype makes it sound like it will be. Of course Intel will come to the table with new stuff as well, so who knows.

You could always go for an AM3+ board and a Phenom II x2 555 to get you by until Bulldozer.

Im not sure what youre doing with your setup but it will more than likely be more than enough for what youre doing, so you probably not need to worry about having the best of best newest stuff.

Are 64GB of hard drive space enough for you? With Win7 installed and a few new games I think you will quickly reach your space limits. I suggest you get a 128GB SSD and I think your budget allows for it. I highly recommend the Sabertooth P67 and the Crosair Vengeance memory as that's what I have and it's working great. You will need to run the memory in an XMP profile in order to get the 1600Mhz speed of your memory because it will default to 1333 when you first boot the PC.

+1 on get the Vertex 3 and the Deluxe.

Also, if you wanted to save a little cash you could get a Spinpoint F3 instead of the Black.

And if a NH-D14 can fit, I would ditch the H60 and get that. It's a bit more expensive, but, my word, dominates the air cooling world.

Thanks for the advice. I'm really looking for more of a low-profile cooler for my CPU, and the D14 is absolutely huge, so I really don't want to go that route.

Does anyone have experience with the AW2310?

I'm really only getting the SSD as a OS boot drive, as well as possibly some programs I use pretty often like PS. I might put some games onto it, but it's not a priority.
