Only thing I would change is the Graphics to a card with 3G memory [url="http://www.evga.com/products/moreInfo.asp?pn=03G-P3-1588-AR&family=GeForce"]http://www.evga.com/products/moreInfo.asp?pn=03G-P3-1588-AR&family=GeForce[/url] 500 Series Family&sw= a little more money but will be well worth it..

Is the GTX 560 Ti 448 Core readily available over there and if so is it cheaper? I'd get one of those if so. Same vRAM as the 570, and almost the same performance in games as well. Other than that, looks good!

If I may ask a few questions:

Why are you going Z68? It's features that it has over P67 aren't that great, and unless you need them, you really should just go with P67, they're usually cheaper. Look in to the Asus P8P67 WS Revolution, you might like what you see /wink.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' />

Second, why are you going 2700k instead of 2600k? There's almost no difference in OC-ability in most tests I've seen, and I'm sure there's a price difference... just a suggestion.

Lastly yer gonna love that RAM, I have the same kit, very good stuff that.

Yes the 560(448) is widley avaliable here and yes its slightly cheaper and it was my fall back option but I decided to go with the newer card as it does have a little more performance, i will however be upgrading to a 580 3GB within the next 6 months so the 570 is to just get me by for now.

I have choosen the Z68 as it was recomended to me by a friend and I do see the P67 are almost as good but as with the GPU I want as newer tech as I can afford.

The 2700K, I choose this over the 2600K as its slightly better and i can afford it, I would have had the 2600K if I needed to save a little more on the build.

Im glad you like the RAM as i was a little sceptical as to the Make as i havent used them before.

thanks for your Comments
