I would probably go for a 2GB 560 if you're planning on SLI... Most people say you won't need it but hey, you'll never know when you'll find it handy!

Otherwise, everything looks good. Take the shot.

The only thing that I would change is the motherboard. Why do you not get the Z68 chipset that costs about the same, yet offers so much more in the way of features? It has all of the features of the H67 and the P67 chipsets and more. Mine also has the LucidLogix chip on it.

The Intel 'Smart Response Technology' (only found on the Z68 boards) is awesome, I've tried it and I know.

"Like Realneil, I was also going to recommend the Z68 platform as well, but I figured out that you are ready, and you made excellent choices, and I just wanted you to get it going . 

"So who is building this bad boy , you or a friend? hope you post the picture here in this post and here's a link to a Canadian Only contest from NewEgg http://promotions.newegg.ca/sweepstakes/11-1972/index.html?cm_sp=Cat_Motherboards-_-sweepstakes/11-1972-_-http%3a%2f%2fpromotions.newegg.ca%2fsweepstakes%2f11-1972%2f696x288.jpg

Nothing wrong with that card at all. I have one and I like it fine.

Nice board, good features too. I think that you're gonna like this PC a lot.

Been playing around with my new Z68 system (Red-Fred) for a day and I like how snappy it is. Sandy Bridge Z68 is a winning combination.

I just received partially my components. Still missing the motherboard, the case and RAM.

Here's a quick question. I see there is 2*6 pin connectors on the GTX 560 Ti, am i suppose to connect them both?

Yes, you should connect a power connection to both of the ports. Are you getting excited?
