Hello all.
Again you say, another question from henry07th, really?
Well, Again, I am seeking the communities expertise. I have put together a part list below. I would like some advise as to what Graphics Card i should choose. This build is for Gaming and recreational Video editing. I aim to be able to get more than 60 FPS in the more intensive games like BF4, Crysis, DayZ and Metro. I MUCH PREFER NVIDIA graphics cards. I Do not mind SLI at all and intend on doing it at some point if you do not choose it now. For example, i didnt know whether to choose the GTX 780 SLI or the GTX 780Ti.

Below is the link to the current build:

The budget is £2000. If you feel that you can save me some money from other hardware by just changing the Brand, then do so. For example instead of using an 840 Pro SSD, use an 840 EVO SSD.
Bare in mind the three monitors that I have chosen to go with.

Also, I like Water Cooling, and i aim to be able to overclock the GPU, the CPU, and other stuff later on, for now i will just be overclocking the CPU for now unless it is suggested that its okay to do so with the GPU you suggest.

THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN! :)

Hello henry07th!

For starters, I like the colours :D  Now for the recomendations:

- You want to overclock, but you chose a CPU that is not overclockable, you should go with a K series CPU to unleash great potential out of the chip.
- 500W will not give enough headroom for a SLI setup, you should aim for 600+W if you want to SLI later.

That's all I can see, nice choose on the M500 Crucial, I've got one aswell :)  Good product!

Get the most powerful GPU you can buy right now, it will last a long time, then when you SLI, it will still kickass games and video rendering!

Well I would get single GTX-780ti or even R9 290X ( which would be better for three monitor setup)

Edit: I wouldn't go for H100i because it make much more noise than new NH-D15 air cooler.

Thanks, I'm willing to accept that the Noctua is better, but how will it look in the case in comparison if I'm not worried about the noise level. You suggested that the R9 290 would be better for the Tri-Monitors, what kind of FPS should i expect with that in comparison to the GTX 780 Ti, I have done research but it is kind of inconclusive?

I also searched for benchmarks but they are different in some benchmarks R9 290X is better and in others 780ti so go for GTX-780ti now it's on sale like other nVidia cards :)

Ahh okay, sorry to keep asking questions but would it be worth that 780 Ti for the three monitors or would SLI 780's bee better?

SLI of 780's would be faster but it's always better to get single powerful card than SLI'ng two slower cards, I would go for single 780ti card and then add second down the road :)
