ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Basically I want a computer that is a power house, I was thinking raid 0 with 2 SSD's for increasing transfer speed along with loading of content in games. I would like quad or six or 8 core. 2 Graphics cards between 150$-450$ each (this depends if you think its better/cheaper just to get one expensive card) and 6-8 gigs of ram. So ya, see what you can do, the fastest possible computer for a decent price. Much thanks
Learn how to overclock, see some articles. Without overclocking.. this has no meaning.
Any way.. You don't need a really powerful CPU for gaming, an i5 750 will do.. or if you play BFBC2 and GTA IV then you can get a 1090t. Do not spend 3000 dollars for this. If you were video editing or something then yeah ok.. but all your doing is gaming and you don't need a $3000 system to max out games with awesome frames.
Yeah, but he may want to max out Physx on mafia II XD

Okay is everything listed interchangeable and upgradable in the future? Also with the parts listed is that all I need, like if I got them all this week would I be able to put them together and have a working comp? And I thought I would need to buy a raid 0 driver. Oh and can u suggest a good affordable monitor that can handle 1920x1200 along with a cool, functional and relatively cheap tower case?
I dunno I am still a bit skeptical of 3d gaming, I h8 3d movies with shitty glasses that give me a headache, and how many games actually are built from the ground up with 3d vision in mind? B/C i know alot of games had it added afterward and is supposed to be really bad.
