D-W's budget allows for the best of the best in a lot of areas, not need to downgrade to a budget cooler.

Corsair H70 or Silver Arrow is fine.
GTX 580 is what we're working with as well.

kcuestag speaks the truth. the only bad thing about the directcu II is that it is a triple slot card which means if you go sli with then they will have no space between them. I guess you could sli it with a dual-slot 580 dow the road but assuming you will leave one slot free between them for air to got through, you will still end up covering up every expansion slot on the mother board except one pci express x1 slot that's above the graphics cards. anyway, the msi does have improved power phases and it has a higher factory overclock which is better if you don't want to mess with that. also if you're worried about the ram clearance you can always go with the thermalright archon instead

will still be plenty strong for you 2500k

You're build is quite nice, but here's something quick I worked out. Notable differences are a SuperClocked GTX 580, a modular power supply, a larger SSD, and adds a great storage HDD.

CPU/RAM: i5-2500k, Patriot Viper Xtreme Series 8GB DDR3-1600 ($314.98 and $20 rebate)
CPU Cooler: Thermalright Silver Arrow ($74.99)
Motherboard/Case: Asus P8P67 Deluxe, HAF X nVidia Edition ($389.98)
SSD: Crucial C300 128GB ($199)
PSU/HDD: Corsair AX850, Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB ($227.98 and $20 rebate)
GPU: EVGA SuperClocked GeForce GTX 580 ($519.99 and $30 rebate)
DVD Burner: LG 22x CD/DVD Burner ($23.99)
OS:

($118.03)



Shipped: $1,880.73
After Rebates: $1,810.73

The only concern I have with the above build is RAM clearance; I'm not too familiar with the Silver Arrow or that Patriot RAM. It could be easily changed, though.

Alternately, you could swap the OS from Home Premium to Professional for an extra $11.96 with this combo with the 580.

Smart thing would have been to wait a month or two until Bulldozers release, and then decide from there which direction you want to go. That's what I'm doing. If Bulldozer proves faster, I'll buy that. If not, I'll go SB.

Thanks for the heads up, though.

I would be very happy with a GTX 570 or HD 6970. Infact, I was originally gonna go with 2 6950s knowing the fact that I might not be able to overclock them. But I can afford to get a 580 as of now so that's what I'm going with.

OS - Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit English 1-Pack - OEM

As you can see, I changed the HAFX from puke green to bloody diarrhea. Maybe with some purple and green lights I can Pepto-Bismo it from it's boringness. Does anyone know of good green/purple led lights?

I am now looking at this 128 GB SSD that's $55 off. I know that SSDs can be a little good for gaming. I already have 2 1.5TB Caviar Black drives for music and gaming and a 3TB Cavair Green for backup. Is it worth it or should I stick with the 64GB for Windows boot and World of Warcraft?

What's the difference between these 2 64GB SSDs?

I think the $140 one comes with a cord and some install disk or something. I'm not sure though...

Because of the shipping, this is the cheapest DVD Burner on Newegg at the moment.

Have you looked at many other cases? There are lots of good ones, especially given your budget.

My Windows 7 install and all non-game programs that I use takes up ~25-30GB. Still, thinking of only having 64GB makes me nervous. But that could just be me.

They're the same drive, but the more expensive one just come with some extra crap - "Data Transfer Kit: Cloning Software, USB to SATA cable"
