I think the power supply is tending towards overkill , and your RAM needs to be 1.5 volt
I also think people get better frame rates from a pair of 560 ti 's , than from a single gtx 580

What does the RAM voltage do?
What would you recommend when it comes to 560s?

The RAM voltage is important because the controller for the RAM is on the 2500k . That can be damaged by higher voltages and then your expensive processor becomes a doorstop [ for a mouse ]

I would recommend you research 560 ti's using google
something like
" gtx 560 ti sli review" would be how I would do it

Agreed with Outlander,
The MSI TFII 560 Ti OC is a solid card.

why the ripjaws when you can get this ram for less. they are both very good- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

the hyper 212 plus is a basic cooler for a 1000$ rig not an 1800$. i suggest this cpu cooler- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

for 10$ more you can get the superior samsung f3 1tb. it is definitely worth it

a 3gb card for 1080p??? are you crazy? 1.5gb is plenty- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

here is a 24" monitor for less http://www.amazon.com/ASUS-VS247H-P-23-6-Inch-LCD-Monit... 23.6" is considered a 24"

are you going to sli? if so that psu is fine if not you can do with a 650w. if you are going to sli those cards you should add a 200mm fan on the side panel. nzxt cases require nzxt fans. or you can just get a silverstone raven rv03 which has better airflow.

^ The Ripjaws are a few bucks more, no need to nitpick that.

Hardly. The Hyper 212+ can handle pretty solid 4.6ghz OC's with an extra Slipstream on it. For that matter any high RPM/CFM fan.

Also, not worth it. The Seagate offers the same performance with a 500gb platter assuming it is the newer version (7200.12) if you can save save. The F3 will not offer that much more performance if any.

I do agree on the card opinion, I disagree with the card suggestion though. 2 SLI 560 Ti OC's would be similar in price but better performance by a huge margin.

NZXT Phantoms don't have windows I believe.
But he can switch if he wants.

Quick question, does a high contrast ratio mean a better gaming experience? (monitors)

@aznshi, what 460s should I get if I were to get some?

the msi gtx 560 ti twin frozr II are good cards.

all you will need to power that is 750w. pc power and cooling makes a 750w version of the psu you posted. it is also silver rated and it is 99$ after promo code so it is a very good deal for a silver rated psu.

Ive had SLI/Crossfire before. I would prefer the fastest single gpu card then 2 lesser gpu's in sli/crossfire. While a decent amount of games work with sli/crossfire, there are those that dont at all, and even actually some that take a hit to performance. You get a lot more heat in the system with dual cards too.
btw, a gtx570 would be fine for 1080p gaming

Will this mobo support full pci 3.0, and not halfbutted like gigabite?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6813157271

Asking, because I heard that gigabite's was not up to standard, wanted to make sure this one was before purchase
