Part choices and time frame make no sense. You cannot effectively build anything 1 1/2 years from now planning on using parts that are already close to being outdated.

I just deleted my previous post after more clearly reading the OP and I am inclined to agree its likely in 1.5 years you won't see these parts, at best you'll only find them used.
I agree..pointless post...in a year and a half we'll all be I7 ......
