What are you going to do with the computer? If your just browsing, $500 is fast enough, If your gaming, $1000 is enough(Depend on resolution) and if using CS5.5, $2000 is enough... I Would recommend buying a 6970 for around $320(Just 1 or two for high res monitor) and it should be able to run 2 monitor.. You dont need 2GB per monitor(if 2 monitors) if you aint doing any super large photo or view(if you got a 2560x1440 or higher than 2GB per monitor)... When my bro's doing his PhotoShop at 1920x1200, it haven't even use pass 512MB(300MB) and gaming can almost reach 1GB(Usually 700MB and up for max settings in games).. Get this VideoCard that i recommended: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (Use at least 25% of your money for the video)
and also get the i5-2500k(Bang for buck, 2600k isn't needed as only few programs take advantage of HTT)
BTW, I'd wait for the New LGA 2011(Sandy-Bridge E) to come out either this year Q4 or next year of Q1, it'll be priced from $300-$1500Price is based on Xeon prices... Wait and get the $300 LGA 2011 this or next year...
do u already have a decent case and PSU ?
and the Asus p6t is a good board just cant fit the 32nm sandy bridge CPUs
One more thing: Consider running Tri Screen since u would be running on dual GPU
I will be going for
2x Power Color HD6950 2GB
8GB DDR3 1600mhz (kingston or Corsair?)
Corsair TX750W 750-Watt (would you recommend another one?)
i5 2500k or i7 2600k (are you sure i5 will handle anything I throw at it... like dirt3 battlefield3 crysis2 at max resolution?)
I do have already 3 monitors 24" ... but I was planing to use a 51" HD TV (should I go for monitor only?)
I was planning in getting the case after I get everything else, to make sure everything fits
Cooler Master's HAF series would be my recommendation, just look for one within ur budget.
That PSU u have is also , IMO enough to run 3*6950 2GB
as far as CPu go, there is generally no difference between a i5-2500K and i7-2600K in gaming.
and at resolutions above 1080 and above, CPu performance matters even lesser compared to GPU performance
and one monitor=1920*1080
3 monitor = 5760*1080
so i would personally lean towards the higher res experience of gaming on tri-screen, but then again, u can just switch between displays.
Thank you muh for all the tips and guide....
Im following all your suggestions
the last thing I would like to ask you is about the memory and PSU (the one I mention is not available)
