i7 3770K w/CM hyper 212 EVO
Crucial Ballistix 16G ddr3-1866 kit
Gigabyte G1 Sniper 3 mobo
Once I dig my way out of the poorhouse, an SSD is on the menu, prob a samsung 840 pro. Got an extremely good price on the proc and ram at microcenter, only bad thing was they didn't stock the mobo I wanted..prob would have saved more but I ended up getting the board and cooler from newegg.
