Background: My monitor is a 24 inch 1920X1080 Samsung. I may be upgrading to a larger monitor when the prices go down. I will be doing heavy gaming. I want a system I don't have to upgrade for 2 or more years. Edit: One other consideration I have is noise level.

-Any comments on any of the components or general build advice?
-Other options besides crossfired 6870s?

Thanks in advance. :D

Whats your budget? have you considered building your own? You can generally save a couple hundred to spend on other stuff like more gpu power or a ssd.

My budget is around 2K for a system(no need for a new mouse, keyboard, or monitor). I don't mind paying someone a 200 hundred bucks to amass all the parts and assemble them for me. If the savings are more than that, then I would consider building my own. I am a bit ham handed but technically competent.

Re-consider the PSU. Here are two choices:

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

Both are modular; a big plus! The 1000HX has two 8-pin connector cables for motherboards that take two 8-pin inputs, in addition to the 24-pin input.

...and Oops did we forget some of your components-install but not attach other components-install other components incorrectly? Doh! Too bad so sad. It must be your fault for installing a mouse driver. No really! There was complete apathy that the system I paid 2k+ for didn't work AT ALL. The worst AND most rude customer service EVER. I had the computer unpacked less than 24 hours before I had it boxed up again.
