Share rr_delta September 9, 2011 8:45:35 PM Thank you very much, I was already looking at the MSI N580GTX Lightning GeForce GTX 580, especially after I saw a video of the reverse spinning fans to remove dust. I will definitely be buying this combo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite... The read and write on the SSD look awesome as well and overall the only thing I really have left to decide on is this motherboard. I appreciate your time and help on this post! m 0 l Related resources need help with a new work and gaming computer -- 2000ish budget - Forum Gaming/Editing/Streaming Computer for 1600-2000$  - Forum Computer for Gaming/Editing 2000-2500$  - Forum Getting a $2000-2200 AMD processor gaming computer. - Forum Gaming/Overall Computer build $2000 - Forum Can't find your answer ?
