Please let me know what you guys think. I used a few good combos and got the TOTAL to about $1265.00 USD. I am buying Corsair H70 and TUNIQ x4 on my next paycheck. Has anyone had any hands on with the Lanboy air case? How was it? Please give me any input bad or good. Thanks guys. Im buying this next Friday... This is for gaming. WOW CATACLYSM, BORDERLANDS, LEGO Star wars with my girl and other games. I will post videos and pictures of the process and the complete computer when finished.

So let's see now... you have a $180 case, a $170 850w psu and a single gtx 560. Your build looks imbalanced .

I Got the case because I like it, I Got the PSU for future SLI. Im overclocking The CPU and the GPU... I feel safer with more headroom I will have with an 850 modular PSU. I actually switched it to the 750 and saved 25 bucks. Im only at 1280x720 res right now so thats why im getting the single GPU. Once I get my 1920x1080 monitor then Im going to go sli 560s

This build includes a factory o/c gtx 570 and is set up to add another one in the future for SLI. It also includes an after market h/s (thermal paste comes w/it).. Also this case is a great one for LANS.

I really do like the things you did and I really appreciate your help. I should have mentioned, Price really isnt an issue up to 1500 or so. Im just trying to keep it lower while not sacrificing anything. I wont go with anything other than a Single Rail 700+ Corsair, Antec, Seasonic PSU... Im kind of picky about that. For GPU, I was going to buy the 580, but there is no point. I was either going for the 560 or 570. The MSI Twin FROZR caught my eye and I plan to overclock it as much as I can so im assuming it with out perform a stock 570. I am getting the Lanboy case. The things I will change would be the GPU and Motherboard. I see that the Asrock looks pretty good, lets just hope the BIOS isnt Finnicky like the ASUS Pro right now

You can o/c one of those 560's until they start smoking, and they still won't get close to touching a 570.
