    Default Opinions please

    Hello everyone. I have been getting a lot of information about various products over the last week or two from these forums and have come up with, what I think will be a nice rig. Could any of you more knowledgeable folks please give me some advice? Also, I intend to go with a XSPC Raystorm/Rasa 750 RS240, HAF X and another GTX 570 (SLI) later. I just want to get the most future-ready components first. Also, I'm not worried about a data drive yet. But, I will be buying a cheap 60GB SSD in the future for SSD caching coupled with my 1TB WD Caviar Black. Though I don't game as much as I used to, I want to be able to roast whatever I throw at it and I'm very excited to set up water cooling when I can afford it. Before I pull the trigger, I want to make sure that my PSU and memory are good choices. Also, if the gains from going to Intel v3 CPU are substantial enough to be worth the extra expense (as opposed to going with an I7-2700K / 1155)?

    only problem i see with those components are the ram and cooler/heatsink,you might run into clearance issues with the phanteks cooler as those ram modules have high heatsinks on them,dont forget ivy bridge is just around the corner and z77,plus nvidia keplar

    i think a clocked 2600k/2700k will be more than enough power/speed

    Thank you for your response... I didn't realize how soon the new CPU/Chipset/GPU's were being released... That's crazy because I have been all over every forum on the internet. I don't know how I missed it. Thank you very much... I'm waiting.
