Was looking for some feedback on a new build. Below is what I have so far.
Still need a motherboard and CPU cooler, other then that just about done.
Budget is about $2k, so feel free to make suggestions or change hardware.
I have that monitor, by the way. It is freaking beautiful. It was so bright, I had to dim it, so that it didn't scorch my eyeballs.
Yeah, the PSU is a bit much. I have a single 4870 1gb, and it runs Crysis at 1920x1200 at max settings with 0xAA just fine. Save your money for the next generation of video cards, or at least save the Crossfire until later. That raid 0 would be recommended, as well.
RAID 0 would not be recommended. It doubles your chances of hard drive failure without really boosting your performance. Unless you're doing video edition or something else that requires you to move large files frequently, you won't see any noticeable performance gains. Not to mention that 2x300gb velociraptors will put you down 400 dollars. A hefty price to pay.
