My System Specs


Drop the GPU to a 670 or even a 660 (should be out and reviewed before you build), for your res even a 670 is a bit overkill..

Gigabyte would not be a board that I would go near.. but thats personal brand preference.. Seen alot of MB problems from gigabyte and they are not known for great RMA service. Asus, Msi, Asrock are better options IMO.

Grab a 3570k unless you want to get a bit more overclocking headroom..
(sandy oc's better than Ivy, Ivy has better clock for clock speed and pci-e3 and some other stuff that is nice to have but not a deal-breaker if you rather the lil bit extra oc room)

SSD, I would go for a sandforce based drive.. OCZ Vertex3 / 4.. or Intel 520 (intel is quite expensive for size but the best drive and warrenty you'll find)

Watch the BST forum here for some parts coming up.. you may get almost everything if your lucky..
