    Biostar has come a long way lately.

    Hitachi is just WD. :laugh:

    v12dock, you can get a NZXT Source 210 for the same price as that rosewill.

    Looks good, I would beg, borrow or steal for a little extra and get the 2500k. Simply because of the free performance you can get with a simple multi change. Even if its only a simple 500mhz or so. Any of the i5 chips are great though. :)

    If you don't plan to OC, since you picked up the 2400, you can go with a H67 board and put the rest of the money towards a 6870.

    I rather use a WD/Hitachi over a crappy Seagate /Samsung any day. :laugh:


    Another PSU option over the Rosewill.

    COOLER MASTER eXtreme Power Plus RS-550-PCAR-E3 55...

    I'd rather have an Antec/Seasonic/Corsair most of the time.

    If you haven't taken my suggestions above and decided to just spend more money, you can still do what I say and get a cheap heatsink for the 2500K. These things will hit 4.2-4.5GHz like nothing with a half decent heatsink.
