Hi im planing on building a new system in the next few weeks. It will be my second build, the first being 5 years ago so I want to run it by everyone first because I'm sure there's probably some better component options. Thanks for the help!
Some additional info
Approximate Purchase Date: within the next 3-4 weeks
Budget Range: 1000
System Usage from Most to Least Important: games, movies, CAD, Photo editing, internet
Plan on overclocking
Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080
Motherboard- pretty much narrowed it down to these 2 options but will look at any suggestions. I want to have the option to upgrade to Ivy Bridge when it comes out and may upgrade to new 7000 radeon graphics card down the road. Also will probably add a SSD later on so must have that as an option
Leaning toward the ASRock

Optical Drive-This one has the most positive reviews for any on new egg

PSU – one of my biggest concerns/questions about the build. I was first leaning toward a bigger psu(850-900w) in case I want to add another gpu later on however if I decide to upgrade the graphics I decided it will most likely be pretty far down the road(1-2years) and by that time I will replace it with a single new card ie: Radeon 7000, 8000 series when they come out. Willa 600w psu allow me to do this?
