    I'm working building a computer having it ready by the end of the year(more than likely sooner, perhaps fall). I've been told that it's best to buy the least important things first and work your way up from there.


    So far I have the case:

    Corsair 600T(White)
    Das Keyboard
    2x OCZ 120G Agility 3 Series Solid State Drive
    Optical Drives

    This weekend I plan on ordering

    Asus Xonar STX Soundcard
    ASUS Sabertooth X79 Motherboard

    I'm waiting for Corsair to release their AX1200i and for Corsair's Platinum Dominator RAM to become more easily available.


    When everything comes together it should look like

    Corsair 600T(White)
    Corsair AX1200i PSU (waiting for release)
    2x OCZ 120G Agility 3 Series Solid State Drive
    1 HDD
    Asus Xonar STX Soundcard
    ASUS Sabertooth X79 Motherboard
    Corsair DOMINATOR Platinum Series 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR3 (Maybe 32)...
    Intel I7 - 3930 or 3820 (not sure yet)
    GeForce GTX 670



    Is there any compatibility issues that I'm overlooking?

    You haven't mentioned what you're going to use the computer for. Since you're planning on using a single card and 2 sticks of RAM, I can't see the point of you going with an X79 build, ESPECIALLY now that Ivy Bridge have hit 1155 and are yet to be released for socket 2011. I strongly suggest for you to go with a similar socket 1155 build and keep the saved cash for either an extra GPU or a future upgrade.

    Mostly gaming. I wouldn't mind taking advantage of the extra DIMM slots and adding more.
