sorry about the copie amd paste but i couldn't get the public setting to work... any way i am going to build this i just bought the cpu very ecited anyway i was currious what you guys thought but also notice there's no power supply listed and thats because i was wondering what size you guys recommend i was guessing at least a 850 do you think i need bigger>? because of the 2 x gtx 460 i think they pull 345 watts in sli . also do you think the case will fit 2 460s in it?the price is not really a issue i want you to consider unless you think i will get better performance the reason is i work at best buy and get a considerable discount on things like the case & dvd & ssd

I was going to suggest that you get the i5-2500k instead of the 2600k. Just lose hyperthreading, which probably isn't worth the $100 for most users.

Your two 460's should fit just fine into that case, and 850w PSU is plenty. Take a look at 6850 1GB crossfire- it's the main competitor to 460 SLI with lower power requirements (saves you money on your power bill). Either setup is fine.

1) Get a 2500K. You don't need 2600K for gaming..agree with Beltzy..

2)Instead of 460 SLI get one powerful Card. From Nvidia Side: 560ti, 570 From AMD Side:6950 1GB, 6950 2GB,6970 2GB . I Recomend 6950 2GB as best for perfomance/$$ ratio!

3)If you plan to Crossfire with 6950 2GB get a good 750W PSU! It can handle O/C CPU and 2 stock speed 6950!

ok thanks for the suggestions unforunatly i already bought the processor ... plus im going to be doing so video editing my wife is in a travelling gospel band so i record there shows and i edit and code them for dvd the wait is some what annoying on my dual core laptop wouldn't hyper threading be a advantage for that? also i did research the 6850 but this bench from toms says it all http://www.guru3d.com/article/geforce-gtx-460-sli-revie...
i am re leaved that the case is big enough im going to buy it today... pay day...
i just though hyper threading was important not so much for gaming but video encoding and other windows programs benefit from it if im wrong please let me know

Still a very good buy! Yes you'll see differences in video editing software! Why don't you get a better Video Card? Like a 560ti or 6950 1GB or even better a 6950 2GB?

Have you brought the board yet? If not you may want to change over to a Z68 board. Since you are doing some video work you will be able to take advantage of the Intel QuickSync Technology if the board supports the IGP (Intel Graphics on Processor) and the Lucidlogix Virtu software that will check to see where you would get the best performance. The Intel QuickSync Technology is very good at digital encoding giving you better overall performance then what you will be able to get from dedicated video card for that application that can use it. The other feature of the Z68 board is that it will give you Intel SRT (Smart Response Technology) that will cache commonly used applications on the SSD allow you to get performance close to that of a much larger SSD. Otherwise your build looks very good.
