wanted to say that i agree

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813157293 this is the cheapest (best) price for performance that i have seen so far
Its made by asrock it has everything you might need (just take a look over it to make sure it has everything) has a good power phase delivery and heat sinks on its phases so you can (if you ever decide in the future) to Overclock.

Alright. Finally compiled a cart we can look at:

http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/Pu...umber=27013848

Missing the CPU and GPU. I plan on getting IvyBridge 3570K i5 and the EVGA 680 when they come in stock. Does everything seem to look good? I plan on buying very soon.

nice but just make sure that you get another 120 for the hyper 212 and wait for the HDD you can snag a deal for a 1 tb for $90

Ah yes thanks for the reminder for the heatsink fan. Not sure Id ever use 1tb but Ill be on the lookout for a deal.

Edit: How would I add a fan onto that heatsink? What could I use to support it

Im looking to get a gtx 680, but is there any downside to getting a superclocked one?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130779
This one for example. I don't know how to overclock, but as far as wear on the card or durability issues to worry about. Because I could spend an extra $30 if there isnt any problems to worry about. Or should I just stick with a stock one?

http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/Pu...umber=27013848

Also what do you mean by "non-reference" cards?

A review on this board says that the hyper212 cooler blocks one of the ram slots with the gskill ripjaw series. Well I was planning on getting those exact parts. Any suggestions of what I should do?

Quote:
cooler master 212+ blocks the first ram slot with g.skill ripjaws. just figured id mention that here so you get an idea on spacing. boots / runs fine with slots 2, 4 used.
I was planning on getting 4x4gb
