Not bad of a rig, I'm actually looking for something in between those lines with a little improvement over certain aspects :D

I'm just generalizing since I know most people would have most likely have an i5 2500k or i7 so I'm just seeing what I can snatch ATM. Not sure I'd go that low with the motherboard though. Eh, about the PSU, mostly looking towards the upper end, but still, I'm generalizing. An SSD is required, I can't stand the slow boot times of an HDD, it's a pain the :mad:ss

Thanks for trying to help though :D

P67 is still a strong board. I just sold a B2 P67 UD4 and that thing was a work horse and OCed nicely

Even if you get a Z68 board, the price will still decrease over time. Its like all PC hardware.

I have a i5 2500k with the retail box. I pulled this from my old LanPC, I upgraded to a 3570k a few months ago.

don't forget your UPS. You don't want a power outage to mess up your SSD.

Eh, I'm guessing this is going to be somewhere between 500-750$?
Ummm well I can figure out a price since its not being used for anything at the moment.
