Antec 1200 .... best way to buy it is in this combo if ya need a PSU.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...

Save a whole lotta money by buying the P6X58D-E over the P6X58D .... and again, best way to buy it is in a combo for example w/ i7-930:

or with the 980

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Item...

Consider getting the 930 and overclocking it to 980 speeds.

I would start w/ 6 GB of this CAS 6 RAM and only add the 2nd 6 if determined to be necessary.

Don't understand the 2 BFG 285's making tri sli....I'd get the current card in dual SLI

If you are going to be doing serious overclocking, I'd switch to the R3E

Get the Antec 1200 and the ASUS p6x58d. Antec cases are really quiet and have plenty of room they are also built really solid.

Might do a little ocing but not much but still want to get the best stuff. I produce music play games and edit videos on my pc so that's why I'm going over kill and all that. A 1000 watt power supple should be the best right or more?

If I had to pick one of the two cases that were mentioned, then I would choose the Antec 1200. Ventilation, airflow, and cooling are very very good. It is a classic case that you buy and then keep for a long time.

The general rule of thumb is a high quality 500 to 550 watt power supply with sufficient current (amps) on the +12 volt rail(s) can easily power a system with any single video card made. A high quality 700 to 750 watt power supply with sufficient current (amps) on the +12 volt rail(s) can power a system with two video cards operating in dual mode. There are a few exceptions like the new ATI Radeon HD 5XXX series cards which use less power due to their energy efficiency.

A high quality 500 to 550 watt psu will have a +12 volt rail rated at 40 amps. A high quality 700 to 750 watt psu will have a +12 volt rail rated at 60 amps.

In addition the power supply should be at least 80+ Bronze certified for energy efficiency. There are some models available which have achieved 80+ Silver and 80+ Gold Certifications.

Corsair and Seasonic are two brands that have a reputation for high quality power supplies that consistently earn high marks in technical reviews. They are reliable, stable, and come with a 5 year warranty. Some of the newer models come with a 7 year warranty.

You would be much better off with a pair of ATI 5850's. The 285's are great cards but are only Direct X 10 since you are building new and you want the best tech so you dont have to upgrade for awhile go for the HD 5850's

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The hd 5850 will perform a little better then the 285's and also brings direct x 11 into it.

ok, so as evryone has said, get the antec 1200 case. i would also suggest dual radeon hd 5850s, or if u want to splurge, get a radeon 5970 which is a dual-gpu card, so its like 2 cards in one!
i would get 6gb ram and see if that works fine for you. i run several copmuters on 1gb and less (win7 and xp). you could get the core i7-980x cpu. it has 6 cores, and ocs quite well. though amd is a better value, intels usually have better performance pe rclock speed.

2 5970's is way overkill for almost anything what res you gonna play at? The 2 5850's or even just 1 5970 is more then enough power in GPU's.
