First time build

Solution
You are spending $200 extra on a motherboard that wont add extra performance

The power supply is a little light , and not known as a high quality brand , though at that price it should be gold plated and wrapped with ribbons and bows
Corsair , seasonic , antec , enermax , pc power and cooling preferred brands .
Minimum 650 watt , maybe 750 watt .

If this is a gaming only build use the 2500K processor .

Spend the money you save on a GTX 570 instead of the 560 ti

Surely a server and a gaming PC are two completely different things? I can suggest a good gaming build for that price however. There are places in this build where you could save money but i thought if you have the budget you might as well cover all the bases.

Intel Core i5-2500k - $219.99
2x4GB Corsair Vengeance Blue LP 1600Mhz - $57.99
GIGABYTE GA-Z68X-UD4-B3 - $159.99
Galaxy GTX 580 (Fermi) 1536Mb - $584.99
Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB x 2 (RAID 0) - $119.98 ($59.99)
Cooler Master HAF X - $169.99
Seasonic 850W - $119.99
Crucial M4 128GB - $211.99
Corsair H100 - $101.99
LG Blu Ray Burner - $79.99
Windows 7 Home Premium - $99.99
Logitech G500 - $49.99
Logitech G510 - $94.99

Total - $1971.86 Before Shipping and $60 Rebates

May seem overkill in some areas but if you have the budget, why not get the best? Just my two cents.
