I'd ideally like to get a 580 for the GPU, but it seems getting a 560ti would be a cheaper, saner option, especially since the 680 just came out and that's totally out of my price range considering I'm pretty much building this from scratch.

If anyone's got any suggestions or comments that'd be neat.
I find this chart and as the rest of that site are handy for choosing components so you get the most value for your money. If you can find a reasonably priced modular power supply, I'd highly recommend getting it if you're even slightly concerned with cable management.

I might have a look at Overclockers. So far I've been using the Falcon guide for inspiration.
The tower is just as important as the parts inside of it, so getting a good one is a wise decision.

I'm a collector, I buy pre-owned for old systems when they're in good condition, but I hate buying modern pre-owned stuff. People just don't take care of their games.
This. Fucking this.
