Guys,

I need help with my first build.

Asus P7P55D-E-PrO
8G Kit(4GBx2) ddr3 2000 Patriot Viper Xtreme
SEAGATE 2TB
Patriot Inferno SanForce SF-1222 60GB SSD
intel I5-760 over clocked to 4Ghz
NOCTUA N14 CPU COOLER
SILVERSTONE FORTRESS FT02
SEASONIC X-750

Any thoughts on the above spec list???
My main issue is what graphics card to get. Im using the system for Audio production and wont be playing any games what so ever. I need 3 monitors and only want to run one card, not two.
Im new to the world of graphics cards and the language of gamers, so go easy on me.

Cheers

Will

GTX 570. Don't bother with a seasonic power supply - far too expensive and you dont need 650W for any single card setup, let alone 750W mega high quality.

Get a TX 650W or an antec 750/650W true power power supply.

Get a GTX 570.
Getting 1666MHZ RAM will give you 0.1% lesss performance and save you $50+

All high-end graphics cards have multiple monitor options. If you want three monitors, get 2 cheap cards, like a radeon HD2400, and you'll have 3 monitor connectivity. Buy a Radeon HD5850-5870 and you will have 3 monitor support from that single card. (6 if you buy two)
Buy a GTX570 and you'll have 2 monitor support, and an enthusiast gaming graphics card, wasting 300 dollars you don't have to.

Cheers.
