There are at least 5-6 of these threads each and every day.
Does no one know how to search?
You don't even have to search.

I'm on this site pretty much all day and all night and I don't remember the last time I haven't seen a;
"HALP PLOX N33D NEW COMPZIES" in the "Latest Threads" on the side.

@Mos: Wait (if you can) another month for the release of Intel's Ivy Bridge generation for a few reasons.

1.) Older generation's of technology will be cheaper.
2.) New hardware is generally better.
3.) It's said to be around the same price as current tech.

my 2 cents

Agree with the video card, PSU Disagree but i am a Corsair fan so , SSD 120GIG good gives him that extra space for extra games later on, Hitachi are a very good brand and its not bad for 2TB, Motherboard The z77 boards are hitting the market, they suppose to have the optimum support for ivy bridge. Thats there primary focus. They should also have better pcie 3.0 support for processors with those features.

They suck. Every CoolerMaster PSU I've had has developed a noisy bearing.
It's pronounced hi-you
