Default Help!!!!

I'm going to buy a GTX EVGA 580, what is the best Processor, Motherboard, and Memory to accommodate this card.

Budget: $700 (Not Including Graphics Card)

Will have Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

750 Watt Corsair Power Supply

Also Case Antec 900, Will this case be big enough for the 580.

700 bucks leaves you plenty of room for ram, mobo and CPU. That's more then I spent on my 2600K setup for those same 3 items. And I even spent extra on a better mobo and more ram. 2600K = 330 bucks, P8P67 Pro = <200 bucks, 8Gb DDR3 = 120 bucks. I spent a little more on the mobo and got the Sabertooth instead.

The Thing is, I know it's enough money, I just don't know what Proccessors work with what Motherboard, ect. Or what would be powerfull enough for the 580's full potential. I'm very good when it comes to software issues, but Hardware is starting to become a new Horizon for me, and I don't know that much about it.

If you're building a system for gaming, and have $700 for the CPU, motherboard, and RAM, the Sandy Bridge system will offer the best performance available at the moment.

Caveats:

Due to the SATA II hardware error in the P67 (amd H67) Intel chipsets, it may be weeks before Sandy Bridge motherboards are available again. (They're under recall, and most vendors are not selling new ones.)

The motherboards seem to be not quite ready for prime time in some ways. I bricked two boards (MSI P67A-GD65, Asus P8P67 Pro) with routine BIOS updates. Perhaps I was careless, but I've never had it happen before. I've done BIOS updates many times since 1995. The P67 boards were my first uEFI systems. Perhaps that made all the difference.

I've had no problems flashing my Asus Sabertooth, twice now.
