Advice on my set up

Thinking about ordering a new gaming rig, this will be my first custom built PC and I'm looking for some input on my selections:

I tried to remove all the extra stuff in there.

Case: Apevia X-Dreamer 3 Mid-Tower Gaming Case w/ Side-Panel Window & Temperature Display

Cooling Fan: Asetek 510LC Liquid Cooling System 120MM Radiator & Fan (Enhanced Cooling Performance + Extreme Silent at 20dBA)
Motherboard: [CrossFireX/SLI] Asus P7P55D-E Pro Intel P55 Express Chipset DDR3 LGA1156 ATX Mainboard w/ 7.1 HD Audio, GbLAN, IEEE1394, USB3.0, SATA-III, RAID, 2 Gen2 PCIe, 3 PCIe X1 & 2 PCI
Memory: 4GB (2GBx2) DDR3/1600MHz Dual Channel Memory Module (A-Data Gaming Series with Heat Spreader
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480 1.5GB 16X PCIe Video Card EVGA Superclocked
Power Supply Upgrade: * 850 Watts - Corsair CMPSU-850TX Power Supply- Quad SLI Ready

Ultra Care Option: Professional Wiring for All WIRING Inside The System Chassis - Minimize Cable Exposure, Maximize Airflow in Your System


Any tips? Anything I should change? Is the professional wiring worth the extra $19?

Thanks so much!

  1. Also, here is the link to the configure page so you can tell me what to replace a part with :)

  2. Been reading a bit more, thinking about going 2 x NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 1GB 16X PCIe Video Card instead of the 1 x 480 GTX

    Also, is it worth getting the EVGA or EVGA Superclocked versions?
  3. GTX 460x2 is better the one 480, EVGA is just a more trusted Vendor but the Sc dont waste your money. whats your price range?
  4. I'm going with 2 geforce gtx 460"s I order mine tomorrow from CP My setup looks like this if it will help at all. And this is my 5th build 2nd from CP!
