Yeah they are a bit pricey, you could probably get away with a cheaper set then to hold you over.

Yeah thats what I'll do. I actually had a Klipsch in mind I want to get down the line with a sound card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16882780018

I'd go with the ud4 b3 or the asus p8p67 pro instead of the msi. Other than that it looks good
I might get a GTX580 down the line so I can sli 2x 580s instead of 560s. As for the mobo goes I got an Asus P8P67 Pro (Rev 3.0)

Oh just to clear some things up, if I order I want to order from Newegg because my company is a business buyer with them so if I order I don't have to worry about shipping and It will score my boss points on his card which he uses to upgrade our stuff at work.


As far as the G.Skill Snipers go, I'll definitely go with that, I don't know why I went with those corsairs, they are nice, but I've always had a good spot in my heart about G.Skill ram. I have never had a stick of G.Skill fail on me out of all my builds and friends/clients/family member builds and they don't complain at all with your OCs.
My current rig has been OC'd with a set of G.Skill since the day I built it three years ago without as little as an error.

Swap out the Corsair 850w for an XFX XPS 850w (link). It's cheaper and works just as well if not better; only if you're willing to wait for it to be restocked though.

Would rather my Corsair since those are some really tough bastards and are practically bullet proof. They're like old Fortron psus.

I know they are, but so is the XFX. Corsair has established itself as a solid brand-name, but they are often much more expensive than other similar models, and both Phaedrus and JohnnyGuru recommend the XFX as better than the Corsair unit. The XFX is a re-done and re-branded Seasonic unit, which is the same thing as Corsair's units.

hmm, maybe you are right, I read up more about it, I'll give the XFX a try this time around then.
