Hi,
I just got a budget decrease, and needless to say I'm not happy, but I put up a new plan for my new PC,
Chassis-Corsair Carbide 400R
PSU-Thermaltake Toughpower Grand 850W
Motherboard-GA-Z68XP-UD4
CPU-i7-2600k
HDD-Western Digital Caviar Black 500GB SATA III or Seagate Momentus® XT Solid State Hybrid Hard Drive SATA II (which of those are faster? I was gonna get a SSD as the start up drive before the budget cut :()
CPU Cooler-Corsair
Graphics-MSI N570GTX-M2D12D5/OC
RAM: HyperX 4GB(2GBx2) DDR3 1600
Fans: 2 Air Penetrator, Need suggestion for the others!
Thanks in advance

Hi there! Welcome to the forums.

Well, it's not bad! I think a few things could be changed, to be sure.
Could you fill this out and stick it in the post? Makes things easier on us: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/261222-31-build-advice that way we know all the parameters.

I would however:
-Drop to an i5-2500k
-get a better/smaller PSU
-Get a Samsung Spinpoint F3 and SSD. Separate, hybrid drives aren't that good IMO.
-Get a Hyper 212+ CPU cooler (only if you want to OC)
-GTX 570 is good, but you may be able to upgrade depending on budget.
-8GB of ram is quite cheap, no reason not to get it at this point.

I'll get back to you once you get that form filled out ;)
