The Vextor is a good choice. I only mentioned this Sundisk because it was a 256GB for little more money than the 128GB Vector. And the performance is comparable (except in random write).

@ Shatto- Hey you'll def need more mem than 2.0 on your ssd, it'll cost bt that means you'll
probably be able to forget the hard drive option you've got down, saving money there means
u can go on to a better case, I'd def b looking @ something with @least 5 built in fans, & 1 big top
4 your radon, that kind of graphics will put out some heat eh, + what your CPU will b doing.
Good choice however with the power supply corsair top of the line silver 2,
(make sure u buy certified)
BTW if your looking @ bf 3 you'll need the newer-longer monitors there a stickler on that.
on red-led honestly if I was you I'd save myself a lot of hassle & just get a decent case.
Happy building- hope to here from u if/&wen u make it to your bios! good luck.

What GPU would be better? A Sapphire vapor-x 7970 GHz 6GB or a evga GTX 680 FTW 4GB The price isn't an issue

I agree with what raphoenix said earlier. I wouldn't call it wasting your money when we are so close to june, but it certainly isn't spending it wisely. I am in the same situation, where I can rune certain games on low settings, but would like a lot more. I am planning on getting the new ones that come out and am ready for some long lasting gaming :)
