nice but expensive case, get a 922 or 912 and put the difference towards a better card, like a 570 or a 6950.
get one ssd, and a 2tb for storage etc
go with 64 if you think youll use over 4 gigs, and get a 2x4gb it of ram
edit : cm 212+ or v6gt for cooler. psu wise, seasonic built,enermaxc..
you still have time for memexpress sale. some nice stuff there
I was looking at the 912 and the 922, then stumbled across the Elite 370. I think that may work for me better.
As for the CPU, I agree, and will probably go for the
Core i3 550
and will clock it up a bit. I don't need terrible amounts of power.
Most definately will go 8G of RAM now that you've said it. Will also probably get the
ASUS GeForce GTX 570.
PSU will be a 500W OCZ ModXStream.
About the SSD... I'm not sure of them yet, so I don't think I'll jump on that until I'm comfortable with it.
Thanks for the input, dude, much appreciated.
