Getting a new pc
i'm hopefully getting a new pc in june and here are the spec's i'm considering:
Case: CM Storm Enforcer Case

PSU: Coolermaster 650W GX PSU

CPU: Intel i5 2500K 3.3GHZ Quad Core Processor (overclocked from 4.2-4.5ghz)

HDD: 1TB SEAGATE / WD SATA III HDD

MEMORY: 8GB DDR3 CORSAIR/KINGSTON 1600MHZ DDR3

MOTHERBOARD: GIGABYTE SKT-1155 Z68AP-D3

GFX: EVGA GF GTX 570 HD 1280MB GDDR5

DVD/RW: SONY 24x DVD/RW

CPU COOLER: Arctic Cooling Freezer PRO v2?

and that's totalling up about £840; anyone got suggestions on improvements as long as it doesn't go over £900?

thanks in advance

I just put together a computer with this motherboard. I must say, this is by far the single best motherboard I have ever worked with. It has everything and more.

I doubt i'll get that, instead of SLI'ing two 570's i'll buy a 680 in a few months, but it does look like a good mobo.

I would run an SSD as my primary drive; the speed increase from an SSD is amazing.

Only install your OS on the SSD, just get a small one and install everything on the secondary conventional drive.
