Read please:

-Will a corsair builder series 600w be enough to power my rig with a gtx 570 and an overclocked i5 2500k with the corsair 400r case? I save $50 on a combo with my case (corsair 400r) vs the tx 750

-I want to get the gtx 570:
And the evga gtx 570 hd goes for $330, is there any heat issues with this card? Should I buy it?

-Is the asrock z86 extreme3 gen3 a good choice? it seems too good for the price 2 (3.0 pci express lanes) for $125.

-Cooler master hyper 212 or hyper 212 evo?

- I want to be able to play bf3 and some modern games like crysis 2, skyrim, etc. At decent settings.

- Going to add an ssd down the road.

- I already ordered an acer monitor (newegg sale) and 8 gb of g skill memory for $35 (shell shocker deal)

Should I proceed to order or wait a day or two?

Here is the build:

Anything I need to change?

Thanks to everyone who helped me.

I have never used either the CM Hyper 212+ or CM Hyper 212 EVO, but I found this information...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3zw [...] r_embedded

The newegg video on the CM Hyper 212 EVO shows that the heatsink pipes on the evo are actually touching at the bottom of the heatsink as opposed to not touching on the CM Hyper 212+. The reviewer suggests that because there are fewer spaces for hot air to build up on the evo, and because the copper pipes touch the cpu continuously, the evo should transfer heat faster/better. Also, the evo has a bigger faster fan that can push more air.

The CM Hyper 212+ = $26.99
The CM Hyper 212 EVO = $34.99

So for $8 bucks you can get more air push and a better heatpipe to cpu transfer.

What about the build is it a go?
Is the psu enough for the build?
Should I go with the gtx 570 or save $100 and get the gtx 560 ti?

Dont have enough money for a 700w psu and I think that It would be more convenient to save $100 now on the gpu for almost the same performance and use another $50-100 in a year to get another gtx 560 ti and get extreme performance.

What do you think?

I think that if you want to go with a 560 ti and have plans for going SLI tuen downgrade to the 560 ti,but be SURE to get at least a 700W PSU rated gold because a 600W PSU wont be enough for 2 560 ti's in SLI.

Hope this helps.

I generally figure that if you are going to go w/ a single GPU at first, and get a second of the same one later, that you go ahead and get the better GPU (GTX 570) instead of the cheaper GPU (GTX 560ti) so that you get a bigger improvement when it comes time to get your second card (final GPU upgrade w/out all new GPU's).

With my limited knowledge, your build looks like you are getting some nice bang for buck. The Corsair 400R is a nice case, and is supposed to offer some of the best performance and features out of any case in the $99.99 range..... Or so says this Corsair Representative...
