Alright, I think I've finally decided on a build. Tell me if it's all compatible and if I can improve it with a few $$.

HDD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Mobo + CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...

PSU + RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...

GPU: http://www.amazon.com/Radeon-XFX-6970-Graphics-Card/dp/...

RAM: http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Vengeance-240-Pin-Platfor...

Case: http://www.amazon.com/NZXT-Crafted-Tower-Steel-Chassis/...

DVD: http://www.amazon.com/Sony-SATA-Internal-Drive-AD-7260S...

OS: http://www.amazon.com/Windows-Premium-64bit-System-Buil...

Phew... ANY comments, suggestions, etc are very welcome. And please make sure that they're all compatible; I did my best, but my head is spinning at this point.

Sidenote: I plan on adding another GPU and HDD in a few months.

Looks like a very solid build and that case is sick!

Anyway I noticed 2 things

1)

Why 2 different rams? They are not the same speed so they are not compatible.

Otherwise it looks good and according the power usage on your GPU your psu is more then capable to handle sli

The mobo you have is not a good board to do SLI with. I would recommend getting the same board but the PRO series instead of the LE version you have.

Sorry I didn't mean to include the two different RAM's. Only the bundled one.

And replace the mobo with: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

That should max most games and all be compatible, right?

Thanks!

THe mobo has nothing to do with game compatibility but yes thats the mobo i ment and it will do everything you want.

Edit: as to maxing games that depends on the GPUs and yes 1 6970 will max most games, so 2 of them in SLI will just be over kill but always fun to be able to play on ultra settings with power to spare
