    Everything seems good, honestly this is overly overkill over over kill, i mean you could get a pv for 1 grand that could max anything, and render fine but maybe your an enthusiast.

    If you have an endless budget the only thing i could see worth doing is switching from quad sli 680s to quad 780s/ triple titans? But other than that your build seems fine...
  2. Get 3X780 instead of 4x680 less problems with games, better scaling.
  3. Best answer
    Get a triple SLI setup. In a lot of games, you may see lower framerates with 4 cards. I suggest 3 770's, 3 780's, or 3 Titans. If you are adamant on 4 cards, however, get 4 770's. They perform better than 680's, and cost less.
    For your CPU cooler, if you want the best of the best, get the Thermaltake water 2.0, or a 280mm cooler:

    Also, thermaltake PSU's are not particularly good, but at that wattage range, you don't have that many options. Why 4 monitors? That will provide a strange viewing experience, I recommend 3. The SSD is a little weak, grab something like this:

  4. 7K is a lot! Fortunately, I can help you use it well.

    I love the first build. But both will do the job. The first build has a green-black colour scheme from the motherboard to GPU lighting to the case LEDS and case fans, so tit will look good and perform great!
  5. Wow, you do not need to blow $7K on a gaming rig. You can spend $2K on a rig and then upgrade incrementally over the next year or two. Spend $2K on a rig and then put the rest in the bank. I would do something like this:

    Then you can add a nice 1440P monitor and whatever keyboard and mouse you want. But really, don't waste $5K when you don't have to. Especially in this economy.
