Sorry, today has been quite busy.
I've been considering Z68. I like the recent tests. I'm going to wait for the extreme6 Z68 (I'm not in too much of a hurry) (or if it is too expensive get the cheaper p67)
I have to make this decision by Monday.
But I'm set on the ASRock. My old asus broke over 4 times, don't want that again.
But, here goes the parts list
As for HDDs, I have about 900GBs of storage I can reuse, and I already have a Win7
Presupuesto a medida. PcComponentes.com
I appreciate all of your help, and I will post pictures when this madman arrives

It looks pretty good. I havent seen the z68 extreme6 come out yet, but although it's out of stock right now the z68 extreme4 is out. Maybe that means the extreme6 will be here soon.

Exactly my reaspning. Still, if I do not get z68, for gaming there is not much difference, and p67 is a chipset thay has been out for a while, so less bugs
thanks to all of you for your patience :-D

I don't see anything wrong with that list, although I do see you changed MB. That looks like a great setup to me. You'll have fun building it. The only thing missing is an SSD.

As far as Bulldozer, very few prople know how it will actually perform. But, if you wait for Bulldozer, you'll begin wondering if Ivy Bridge will be better. If you wait for Ivy Bridge, you will wonder what the 2nd AMD line of Bulldozer will be like when they release it in the last Q 2011 or 1st Q 2012. The point is, no matter what you build, within 6 months it will be older tech. Technology is never going to stop. My advice is find a system that will do exactly what you need and go with it. If you worry about the next platform release, you will never build anything. Worse case is a new MB and CPU and you can rebuild. Most of us do that anyway. We were just talking on another thread about this very thing. It really dosen't matter if you don't have the newest and best out. It really matters that your system will accomplish what you do with your computer. When it gets to the point that what you have won't do it, rebuild. You'll never build any system that will be the best there is for any length of time. History tells us that.

Off my soapbox. Choose your system, have fun building it, and enjoy the hell out of it. Much of what I said may not make sense, but it's the best advice I know.

If you are set on Nvidia card, I would say go 570 over the 480. Not saying the 480 is abad card, but given the option, the 570 is IMHO the better choice.

The reason is, performance wise the 570 performs just as well, and in some cases a bit better than the 480.
Second, it runs cooler, and uses less power.

And the SC edition of the 570 pretty closes what gaps there are even more, many times putting it ahead.

EVGA has a HD version of the 570, thats slightly cheaper with a $40 rebate.
This card vents partially outside, and partially inside the case however, so a case with good airflow will be needed.
Its also a bit shorter than the reference card, by 1"

The regular 570s use a Vapor Chamber to cool, and exhaust all outside.
They are identical as far as performance is concerned however.

Another good option may be the HD6950.

You are too right...
I'm leaning towards P67 because Intel announced Ivy will work with P67. So if all of a sudden games require an octo core, then I guess it will be time for Ivy I chose the Sabertooth because it has what is important to me: Temperature control and a 5yr warranty. Can't ask for moar

Plus, my past experience with AMD is truly, truly sad. I DO NOT want to go thru that again. EVAR!

As to building my own system, I'm having the store build it. I can't gamble 1200€ now. I need this thing to work. Out of the box.

Though If I could wipe my arse with 50€ bills, then I would have already built me a Classified SR-2 with dual Xeons and a Quad 590 SLI

I'll post pics soon.
