Thanks for the help everyone.

Here is what I've managed to piece together after a week of being bored at work and spending my work hours putting together a new gaming rig.

Case: Thermaltake Armor A60 ATX Mid Tower - $89 w/ a $20 MIR
MoBo: ASUS P8Z68-V - $190
CPU: Intel Core i5 2500K - $219
CPU Heatsink: Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo - $28 (for now I'm going with this will probably upgrade to the Corsair H60 or H80 when I upgrade my current GPU and PSU)
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 3TB 6GB/S 7200RPM 64MB Cache - $139
SSD: Crucial M4 SSD Micron C400 64GB - $114
RAM: Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B Vengeance 2x 4GB, Blue - $55
PSU: Corsair HX650W - $109
GPU: BFG nVidia GTX 260 (when I'm not feeling broke again and have more money will be upgrading to a GTX 580 or whatever is all powerful and new before the launch of ST:TOR)

Hopefully this will keep me satisfied with playing most the upcoming games like Skyrim, Star Wars: The Old Republic, Diablo 3, Minecraft and so on, on High/Ultra settings.

Also I'm hoping this Intel SRT works out well w/ my SSD/HDD, I'll post again when I have it all pieced together, hopefully next week, and let everyone know if it's worth it or not.

Again thanks everyone on this forum for your help, I'm glad I found this site, from what I posted and reading the dozen or so other topics on here I think I've managed to get myself a decent setup for under $1000.
