Thanks for the reply! Sorry I'm a little chatty and like to cover all the angles on these things!
Alright so I've changed the
CPU + Mobo package to: $409.98
Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost)
EVGA P67 SLI 130-SB-E675-KR LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Newegg.ca - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!
I'm also reconsidering the Mobo and Ram. I'm thinking 2133 isn't worth it after doing a little research, which would mean that the Mobo cant use 1600? Plus the Mobo is roughly $50 more than others and that with the savings of getting 1600 Ram, that change would come close to another $100 saved. Or are people wrong and is the performance difference noticeably better?
and instead of one of the WD drives...
$119.99, Crucial RealSSD C300 CTFDDAC064MAG-1G1 2.5" 64GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

I'm also looking at the OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD2-2VTXE120G 2.5" 120GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) but its $165.
Idk if 64G's is enough for the SSD. The only thing I think id install on it other than windows would be Protools and maybe a game or 2.. need to give that one some more thought... anyone find out they run out of room quickly on these things?
As for the heat sink, isn't the H series liquid cooling? At least that's what its looking like on newegg. Idk how that will fair with my Antec P180 in terms of it fitting. I honestly don't like the case anymore its practically a mini fridge and it weighs a ton but its pretty solid at the same time and if it will do the job I really should just suck it up and deal with it lol. Couldn't I just get a better fan based heat sink if I wanted to over clock it? or is that too risky? I've never used liquid cooling before and as I understand it those units can take up quite a bit of space.
P.s. People seem to like this GPU better not much different, $20 more though.
