It's our pleasure. Now, once you get all those parts, we better see some pics of the assembled rig...

Im actually planning in doing a tutorial in Spanish because all the good tutorials are in English, imagine the frustration of the people that only speak Spanish.

i know seasonic has amazing quality, but I would go with a cheaper psu, maybe downgrade to the 2500k unless you do video editing, wait to buy a hardrive or get one off ebay. I would stick with the asrock extreme gen3 motherboards as they are about as feature packed as you will need, they have great value and they look awsome (extreme 3 gen3 is my fav). Then I would use the extra cash to upgrade you gpu to a hd6970 or 2x gtx 460 depending on if you plan to XF the radeon cards.

forgot to mention the best gtx 460 is the msi hawk edition, it overclocks well even beyond the great stock overclock. plus I got mine for $100 usd after a $30 mail in rebate. plus a gtx 460 is roughly = hd 6850 so x2 is amazing especially when oc'd

Use the money you save from getting a 2500k and put it towards your graphics card. At least a 2GB minimum.

I don't. From reading many forums, there are certainly lots of happy Asrock customers, but there are also lots of complaints. Build quality depends on what level you get (of the Gen 3, there are multiple models). The ASUS is an extremely solid board - yes, like anything, there are a few reporting problems, but the % is very low and I'd venture to guess that a large part of that is user error. If I were going cheaper on a mobo, I'd still look at ASUS, or maybe Gigabyte if I were NOT going to overclock.
