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.
Thermaltake Armor A60 ATX Mid Tower -
$89 w/ a $20 MIR
ASUS P8Z68-V -
Intel Core i5 2500K -
Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo -
(for now I'm going with this will probably upgrade to the Corsair H60 or H80 when I upgrade my current GPU and PSU)
Seagate Barracuda 3TB 6GB/S 7200RPM 64MB Cache -
Crucial M4 SSD Micron C400 64GB -
Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B Vengeance 2x 4GB, Blue -
Corsair HX650W -
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.
