How about this system?

Opinions on this build? Looking to keep it under $1500 and in a mATX form factor:

I have all the other parts I need (PSU, DVD player, couple of extra HDD).

Thoughts?

  1. That is a sweet build, but the IT market moves fast so given the massive price drop in flash memory (SSD's and RAM) maybe wait a month, could save you some more cash.

    If you not fussed then i would buy what you have specified.

    Enjoy!
  2. looks pretty good. my only advice would be to shop around to get the best prices check www.newegg.com

    also the GTX 580 card you have will take up 3 slots so you won't be able to SLi in the future.

    just a thought. I have GTX 570's SLi'd in my mATX build and it is sweet. planning to do 3xa surround gaming soon.

    but... If you upgraded the motherboard to a P8P67 Pro you would have 2 slots between the PCIe slots and have plenty of room to add a 2nd GTX 580...

    Dude, I think you missed the part where this is a mATX build. only 4 slots total.
