    Why 3 GPU's? No ssd? I want haswell. I already have a benq so It wouldnt make sense to buy a different monitor. Dont like the case. Ive always wanted a nzxt case.
  8. 3 GPU's for better performance, and longer time till you'll need to consider upgrading. You never mentioned already owning a monitor. And SSD's are too expensive for what they bring. They offer now increase in performance, merely 5 seconds faster loading times.
    Oh, and I have chosen a haswell CPU.
    Also, why do you want to fork out 200$ for something you're not going to be staring at? It may just be me, but I spend ALOT more time looking at my monitor than my case. I pick cases for practicality not aesthetics.
