  1. ^ Any reason to go with that CPU Cooler ?? Frankly I dont find any with regards to the other parts that you have chosen,...
    Also are you planning to overclock ?? And why 12GB ??
  2. No, no plans to overclock. I was kind of hesitant to even include the cooler in the first place, but I have always had problems with over heating.
    I had planned on 24gb, but I figured 12 was a much more reasonable number.

    ^ Hmm,..
    Here is a rebuild, with few tweaks,...
    i7 950 + ASUS X58 Sabertooth - 5 years warranty and very good features, but has limited overclocking potential but no means slouch as even this board can overclock upto 3.8GHz easy, but anything above would be hard,...but anyways this has little effect as you dont plan to overclock or much,...

    RAM - Same

    CASE - Check the HAF 922, This is also very roomy and would easily handle 2x GTX 570s,...

    PSU - A good 850W would give you good headroom for 2x GTX 570s

    CPU Cooler- If you want one -
    CM Hyper 212+

    HDD - I would rather stick with the Samsung F3 1TB - It is nearly as fast and a lot bigger

    SSD - Maybe a SSD for boot
  5. Actually, I agree on everything but the PSU. It seems to be kind of cheap. Reviews aren't good for it.
  6. Pretty badass. I have the 470 and play at 1920x1080 so you should be golden there.
    How abt this seasonic 750 W 80 plus Gold Certified

    That thing looks beefy, but I couldn't get over the price of the thing.

    The XFX. Even those two reviews show that the Kingwin is just a smidge better, but I was talking about the feedback for XFX. Seems that it's more prone to a whiny pitch than the Kingwin. Also, the Kingwin glows. And I like shiny things.
  10. ^ Hmm, yes the squeal does seem to be an issue, then why not go with the Kingwin gold ??
  11. Because at some point, I'll want to start adding more HDDs and GPUs and having a large capacity PSU makes more sense than a smaller type.
  12. ^ How much larger ?? IMO the 850W is large enough,...
