I just saw that all of the parts for the new computer I'm building have been delivered, and will be waiting for me when I get home from work this evening. Even though my current PC which I built over four years ago still handles most things (including games like Borderlands 2 and Skyrim) fairly well, I suspect I'll have trouble doing much upgrading later on, so I figure I might as well get as much system as I can now so it lasts a while. Here's my specs:

CoolerMaster HAF X case

Asus P8Z77-V motherboard

Core i5 3570K

Corsair H100i cooler

16GB DDR3 RAM (2x8GB Corsair)

EVGA GeForce GTX660 Ti

Seasonic X-850 PSU

256GB Samsung 840 Pro SSD (I'm reusing a 500GB storage drive from my current system for now)


I figure that this should be plenty of power for now, with some decent upgrade options later on if needed (I could add a second video card for SLI or more RAM.) Looking forward to putting this together and seeing what it can do...
