  1. ^ Any reason to go with the EVGA 4-Way SLI ?? And from where will you be buying the parts from ?? Also how high are you planning to overclock ? And reason for such a sound card ??
    A few changes here and there could get you another GTX 570 right now,...
  2. sound card is for my extensive home theater
    that way can run straight rca into my mixer to my amps
    the classified motherboard is for no other reason than i like and have heard heaps of good reviews on it and eventually thinking 3 way sli + a pci-e ssd
    ordering most parts off new egg
  3. ^ So I assume you have an extensive monitor setup as well to take advantage of the Tri-SLI ?
    Also fill this and paste it here,...

    SSD
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227550

    HDD - For the same price, 1TB and faster
    Samsung F3

    PSU - For Tri-SLI 850W will not suffice,... But frankly I dont see a point going above Dual-SLI,...
  6. cool, was only planing to do 2 gtx 570s on the silver stone psu, the 3rd is a long way off. As for ssd i was planing on getting 2 cheap one's to run my operating system in raid 0, so dont need much more than 30gb?, ram was looking to get as close to or over 2000mhz and are samsung hdd's any good? didnt have as many reviews on new egg
  7. but most importantly what do you think of my other components, mobo, gpu, psu, cpu were can i save some money, what is over kill what is to small will it all work ok together?
  8. Mobo - This is a good alternative -
    ASUS Rampage III Formula
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131666

    RAM - The reason why I suggested more RAM is it would help with productivity stuffs,...

    PSU - Silverstone is good,...

    SSD - 30GB is kind of small if you ask me, if you install many apps, also for a SSD to work at its full potential, it need to have atleast 12-15% free space,...

    But take a look at the new Intel CPUs that have been launched, they look very good, but dont offer Tri-Channel or dual x16x16(Except for boards which have NF200)
  9. thanks will do
