Hello everyone i posted a little while ago but I have changed a lot and also recieved a lot of online coupons so If i buy this computer today it will only cost me 2000$.

Here it is:

Standard DVD and Blue Ray drives.
CPU and cooler combo: SandyBridy i7 2600k with the coarsair H50 water cooler - http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...

GPU: 2x SLI MODE: Palit GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) Sonic Platinum 1280MB OC http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (finally I get SLI FTW!!)

What are you using this for? If it's not a heavy work computer, then you're wasting a good amount of money on things you don't need.

Changed to that kit, I do a lot of video editing but nothing at 1080p or anything, just a lot of 720p stuff. Also, I will be using this to primary video edit, lots of coding big projects (im a coder) and Im also a gamer and I game in 3D with my nVidia 3D vision.
