  1. Welcome to the forum. It would be best if you filled out the Build Advice form in my signature first, but here's some changes to consider.

    CPU: Intel Core i7 930 -$289-
    MOBO: Asus P6X58D-E -$240-
    RAM: Mushkin Enhanced Blackline -$180-
    GPU: Asus Radeon HD 5850 -$320-
    PSU: Antec TP-750 -$120-
    HSF: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus -$27-

    The 930 is a bit faster than the 920 and it's only a few dollars more.
    That motherboard has support for some newer features.
    The RAM linked above will be just as good for cheaper
    You may want to consider the 5850 for a bit less cost, heat, power consumption, and noise.
    Then, the Antec PSU is better quality than the Kingwin.
  2. I7 930 it is upgrade to 920, why do you need 1000 wats planing to crossfire? if i were you i would look into water cooling for fermi,

    Cost:1856.90 i cant thing of any thing more to add to it that way overkill.
  4. Thanks hitman, yah i checked out the fermi versus 5970 what a huge difference.
    Thinking about backing off the top end video cards to two performance cards 5850's x 2 or 5830x2
  5. Get a 5870 it can max out most games including metro 2033 at 1080p. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-hd-5870,2422-12.html more benchies.
