So I have been spending the last week or so looking at the recommendations of my previous thread and have taken some of the suggestions and tweaked them and come up with the following. Just wanted some last suggestions/advice before I pull the trigger early next week:

Here is a link to my previous thread.

Just a reminder, this is a gaming system, but I also plan to do some programming and photo editing on the side. I want this system to be able to handle Diablo III and Star Wars: The Old Republic.

Some Questions:
1) Would the one video card be able to drive both the monitors listed below?
2) Should I change the video card to add a better one and add a second later?
3) Any other recommendations on parts changes.

Thanks in Advance
Scott

those are some expensive monitors. i really dont see how they are worth it.

but people see things differently.

at $40, the SCMG-2100 (aka scythe mugen) is a better cpu cooler; it cools better its quieter, and it costs less with shipping:

the antec is a great psu, but so is this corsair, and the corsair is cheaper:

the video card will be fine, you have a great build there.

I do a lot of programing (I am a software Engineer) so I was looking for the best color/resolution possible that still fit my budget. These went two hundred over but they are highly recommended. I have decided that I really would like a 1900X1200 resolution monitor after a bit of consideration.

Also, would you guys recommend The listed

GeForce GTX 560 Ti

or

MSI R6950 Twin Frozr III PE/OC Radeon HD 6950

Thanks
