$1300 Gaming PC Build

This is what I came up with. A friend looked through it and he said the only thing he might change was the RAM just because he trusts corsair more. Also he said the extra cooling shouldn't be needed with that case. It came out to about $1330, I wouldn't mind dropping some money if theres anything unnecessary. The harddrive is a bit much but it seemed like a good deal.

I'm really just looking for something I can dual monitor with (gaming on one, browsing/music on the other) that lasts me a while with the graphics and speed. What do you think of this? Thanks, I appreciate it.

Also if this looks good i could use some monitor help :)

  1. You'll want the 950 cpu, it's the same price as the 930 now, not a big deal, but a free multiplier.
    Your optical link goes to the cooling fan, but any tier one or two DVD should be fine? Are you looking blue-ray?

    Otherwise, looks good. Your upgrade path will be the addition of an SSD and another 460 in SLI.
