Default Hi, Please take a look at my build.

Hi everyone its my first of many posts on your tech forum and i please ask you to look at my build. Just tell me if you see any "bottlenecks" or anything that will render it inoperable. Just want to make sure itll work before i buy it in 2 weeks.

Welcome to the forum... Whats your budget? Can it be newegg.com?

It all works, but not eally thebest you can probably do. Though I dont know athing about that drive.

I'd drop the 580, and get a 570... Not a huge performance gain for the higher prce.
That cooler i believe kinda sucks.
I'd get the 2500K just so you can overclock eventually...

like i said, works yes, best not really.

The 580 will last you long as the 570. If not longer. The extra price is not worth it.

Since you are buying a card, get a p or z series board. They allow for overclocking, and are a bit better boards.
