--- UPDATE 8.8.2012 ---
The rig is complete... for now. GTX 670 and H100 coming in September!
Intel Core i5-3570K
Gigabyte GA-Z77-MX D3H
2x 4GB DDR3 Corsair Vengeance 1600 MHz CL9
Intel 520-series SSD 120GB
WD Caviar Black 1TB (WD1002FAEX) + misc (older) HDDs
(old) Zotac GTX 260
Fractal Arc Mini
I've redirected the airflow so there are two intake 120mm fans in the front, and one 140mm exhaust on the sidepanel. The Corair H100 will be mounted on the top as intake as well - making positive air pressure.
Enjoy the pics!

So my friend finally decided to get himself a new PC next month (August) and asked for my help.
Budget is 6000 DKK (~$1000) and I wanted to keep the physical size small, since we do LAN parties everynow and then. He is going from a Q6700/GTX260 setup to following I've found:
CPU: Intel Core i5-2500 (non-K)
GPU: Geforce GTX 560 (non-Ti) OR Radeon HD 6870
M/B: ASUS P8P67-M PRO (Micro ATX)
RAM: Corsair Vengeance (Blue) 2x 4 GB DDR3 @ 1833 MHz, CL9, 1.5V
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Green 1TB WD10EZRX
PSU: SeaSonic X-560W (Q for quality)
CAB: Fractal Design Arc Mini
Stock Intel heatsink, and he will get my optical drive. Motherboard supports native SLI and CFX, so future upgrade is possible, even with the 560W powersupply.
Price: ~ 5858 - 5908 DKK.
So what do you think? Anything I should be aware of or make any changes? I will post pics next month when the build is done!
