Oh it seems I forgot to put a (2x) besides the GTX 580. So with the second video card and the monitor etc, i will be able to play in 3D, right?

Ok and as for a sound card, do I need one or can i just use the motherboard's sound card?

The onboard is fine for most uses. There are better cards on the market but you will need high quality speakers do reap the benefits.

Ok thanks for your help. So im all set, i can go pick up the parts right now and its will boot up and work, right?

It should just as long as no part is bad (DOA) and you have an OS to install on it

May 7, 2011 9:05:35 PM

Yes it is a great build! Fastest Quad core CPU on the market and 2x the fastest single GPU card on the market!

ha yes it is but it does have a price tag of 3100 dollars. hey if oyu could find other parts, such as a cheaper HDD of 1TB or anything like that, im all for changes. I wanna lower the price as much as possible without downing the performance so ill keep the GPUs and CPU

Do you know any good alternatives to the logitech g9x mouse? Also, do you know any good gaming keyboards under 75$? If you know any good keyboard or alternatives to that mouse, send me the canadacomputers link
