    New Desktop Build- Suggestions?

    Any recommendations or suggestions are welcome!
    This computer is meant for gaming, primarily WoW, SC2, and D3.
    Monitor size is 1600 x 900. I am interested in building the computer as soon as possible. I plan on overclocking once im more familiar with the computer.

    I have bought the following..
    Case: COOLER MASTER HAF 912 RC-912-KKN1 Black SECC/ ABS Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
    HDD: SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
    RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBXL
    PSU: NZXT HALE 90 HALE90-650-M 650W ATX 12V v2.2, EPS 12V v2.91 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply (BOUGHT)
    GPU: EVGA 01G-P3-1373-AR GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) Superclocked EE 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support
    CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80623I52500K
    DVD: ASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS Black SATA 24X DVD Burner - Bulk - OEM

    Still deciding on which mobo to buy though..
    MOBO: Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 or ASUS Z68 P8Z68-V PRO

    Thanks in advance!

    If you plan to overclock I would suggest an aftermarket CPU cooler such as the Coolermaster Hyper 212 or Corsair H70.

    You could save some money on the board by getting this:


    and then use the money for a 560ti:


    (and the H+212 Culadin mentioned)
