  1. That's a lot of cash for I'm not sure what.

    Do you intend a high overclock?
  2. For running crysis at 1920x1200 maximum settings
  3. might change gpu to HIS 4870x2 and MOBO to Gigabyte GA-X48T-DQ6 Motherboard
  4. Yes far better choices!

    Next up, get some low latency low voltage 800Mhz RAM, such as:

    Then get a PSU that is well reviewed by a quality PSU reviewer such as

    The Corsair 1000W would be one good option.
  5. Get the 4870x2 and the x48 they are much more stable and faster. also plus one on the corsair 1000watt
