    Looks like you have a big budget.

    I wasn't sure whether you needed a monitor, so I didn't include one. You should get an Nvidia 3D vision 2 one.

    What do you think about this build? It lands you just on $2000.

    If you want to save a little bit of money, you don't have to get two graphics cards today. One such graphics card will be enough for maxing out all games without 3D. If you buy a 3D monitor, in some games, settings will have to be reduced a bit (for example, Battlefield 3).
  3. i was actually using a 50 inch led tv, took some getting used too but after getting used to it and getting the distance right, I kinda like it :P, The components look absolutly amazing so thank you very much for that, on a side note I saw a case i really like but I'm not quite sure if its worth it, What do you think about the thermaltake lvl 10 gt
  4. It's a superb case, and while at it, it's very expensive as well. If you want it and can afford it, go for it. It's better than the one I recommended :).

    +1 for this.
  6. Sunius pro xD
  7. Agreed you would be seriously nit picking to even try and pick holes in that set up. Very nicely done Sunius.


    Mactronix :)
  8. Sweet! I'll post a follow up in the next week after i get all the parts to let you guys know how its working. Again thank you very much for sharing your knowledge!
  9. Don't forget pictures! :D
  10. I take the Sunius proposal pc and make some changes.
    Remove this 2 gtx 670 (save $ 854.00) and take just one Gtx 780 is now around $550.00 this save you almost $300. Now you can buy a XSPC 360 RX (Big raduator) watercooling kit.

    I have very similar PC.
